Would love to see romances/WF books featuring protagonists who aren't in their 20s/early 30s. Fixing marriages/rekindling the spark, reunited after divorce, second (or third!) chance at love with someone else, etc. Doesn't have to be dark AT ALL. #mswl
Top of my #MSWL: women's fiction and romance by/about underrepresented voices. Contemporary. Historical. Contemporary or historical with a magical element. Grounded SF. Romcoms. Happy books. Also, maybe a big, sweeping gothic romance?
Emily Rodmell @EmilyRodmellI'd love to see juicy contemporary inspy romance plotlines. For example, someone in Witness Protection who can never tell anyone including love interests who she really is. Or a character who finds out as an adult he/she was switched at birth or kidnapped. #MSWL
I wholeheartedly DITTO this #MSWL. Juicy inspy contemporary romance and all the suspense.

also looking for womens fiction with or without romance:
*stories that focus on some aspect of the female experience (the label "womens fic" is not entirely accurate for all experiences)
*stories that make you think
*stories that make you feel
*stories that are a fresh take
still on adult romance:
*sexy romantic comedy
*looking for a fresh take on tried-and-true tropes
*looking for laugh-out-loud humor
*looking for unique situations/conflicts and character relationships
*a fun story that also has emotional depth and resonance
moving on to adult romance now:
*this goes for everything, but I will repeat it - more diverse characters and a range of diversity rep
*I consider any heat level, but "moderate" is my favorite, not too sweet and not too spicy, it's just right for me
still on NA:
I really want a ballet book in NA contemp romance where both love interests are dancers in the same company - even better if they are rivals of some sort
this can be f/f, m/m, or m/f
#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).
Author/illustrator graphic novels for YA and MG. Something fluffy and with a good romance. I love found family stories and kids finding ways to resist corrupt power structures. A unique visual style and a distinct perspective is essential. #MSWL
