Sascha 🍄 @confusedophanyou know what I like? gay romance in fiction that isn’t coming-of-age teenage high school drama. give us gay romance in horror, in sci-fi, in adventure stories and action. basically the romance side plot cishets have been getting since the dawn of time, but make it gay
Connie Bergendahl @ConnieBergenda1Hi Stacey...for February submissions, should synopsis and manuscript be two "separate" documents in the email?@Donovanesque
Ali Herring @HerringAli#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.
YES! I've been dying to read something like this for ages! #MSWL

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.
#MSWL. Always looking for great adult fiction, e.g. Southern Gothic, medical romance, romantic comedies, Up Lit, domestic thrillers, historical fiction, women’s fiction, mysteries and cozy mysteries. You can email me at email@example.com.
Also, this is the first time I've articulated this, but one of my favorite books—and movies—is Call Me By Your Name. (Rereading the book last year was one of my greatest joys of 2018.) Boy, what I would give to find a coming-of-age and romance with that same pull. ❤️❤️❤️ #MSWL
Tara Tsai @TaraTsaiWritesMy mother-in-law was telling stories of how she had to accompany her sister on match-making dates in Hong Kong when she was a kid. Dim sum with the couple and all the females in the family. Is there a historical romance like this, especially own voices? I would love to read this!
Omg please someone write this for me #mswl
Hello #amquerying #writingcommunity - I open to submissions in less than 24 hours! Curious what I’m looking for? A full list can be found on the @MetamorphLitAg website or QueryTracker, but here’s a little #mswl to get you started. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!
OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult SFF with rich romantic layering. Give me complexity and stakes laced between both the romance and the fantasy conflict. Show me how magic and love work in tandem. Show me passion across galaxies. Light me on fire.
OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Queer contemporary romance! Show me all kinds of relationships, all genders. Make me BURN with desire to see the relationship ignite!
(I am queer myself and want to read all the nuance and complexities of queer romance explored without hesitation)
OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - PILES OF Adult fantasy. If you give me familiar creatures (elves, dwarves) make them & their mythology EXPLOSIVELY different from traditional versions. No romance required, but romance (or just heat!) is welcome, too.
Yesterday I read BURN FOR ME by @ilona_andrews and I think I have found a new favorite romance series. It is also exactly what I mean when I say I want paranormal or contemporary fantasy that feels new and different. I want more like this! #mswl
