Romance

And as much as I love the dark stuff, I equally adore a good #YA #romance and #MG or #YA #Humor! I love sharp wit and a good laugh. #MSWL

#MSWL: books for teens that deal with relationships/love/romance but that don't romanticize the notion of "the one."

One of my favorite romance tropes is when you start with “oh man these people are diametrically opposed and should never be in the same room” and then you immediately smush them together for some dastardly reason. #MSWL

"Would love an East/West Germany or Berlin Wall historical with a romantic hook. Something sweeping and heartbreaking." @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

2019 #MSWL: a fantasy or sf romance with the depth of plot, character & worldbuilding of Nalini Singh's fab books. Nonfiction like THE BUTCHERING ART. Smart, fun not-guilty-pleasure reading like CRAZY RICH ASIANS. Great YA epic fantasy (and contemporary).

Where’s all the adult speculative fiction and romance?! #mswl

If you start your query letter with the title, genre, word count, and a quick summary, you'll always get my attention. (Hastily written example in reply.) #MSWL @HallmarkPublish #romance #mystery

#MSWL I want a MS that includes a romance, framed around an antihero like Damon from the Vampire Diaries (doesn’t have to be straight romance & I’m not necessarily looking for a vampire). Wounded, bad to the bone (but good too, redeemable), infuriatingly compelling. Give me.

YA: Much the same as MG--humor, realistic teen stories, #ownvoices, adventure, sci-fi. Also, love a good teen romance, horror, mystery, but not super-dark.

Children's NF at all levels: curriculum tie-ins, PB bios, multicultural history, science, sports, pop culture.
