I am dying to read a YA romance featuring two neurodiverse characters. I want lots of tension. Maybe one character struggles to be mainstream (family expectations) and another makes it work with no ishts given. Please send this to me. #MSWL
#MSWL update! Looking for YA or A: clean Victorian romances; cozy mysteries with quirky sleuths; esp. if you have either with unreliable narrator. Any "artsy" connections would be a plus! Send QL+first 15 pages to email@example.com, with my name in the subj.
I desperately want contemporary or fantasy romance novels with trans main characters where there is no bullshit transphobic reaction to the MCs transness from anyone anywhere ever. #MSWL
I follow so many incredible bakers on Instagram because I'm obsessed w/ fancy, colorful, and quirky cakes, and it's making me crave a contemporary #YA or #MG featuring a mc who has a passion for baking. Bonus points if it includes a fluffy romance or baking competition! 🎂 #MSWL
If I missed your #SFFpit pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. Adult: SFF, thriller, cont. romance, & mystery. YA: thriller, SFF, horror, mystery, & contemporary. MG: SFF, mystery, contemporary, & horror. querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.)com #diversity #MSWL #ownvoices
It's true! I'm open to queries so hit me with your best shot: querymanager.com/query/mferrara
Not only that—but I'm now open to picture books! My list is definitely children's focused in PB, MG, and YA -- but I'm selectively looking at Adult SFF and romance! #MSWL
#MSWL Lightning Round:
--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship
--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance
--Adult psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing
--Adult SFF that makes me cry
Walks-Softly 📚🌳 @Skytale_Writer@Donovanesque Do you think it's safer to go with a Christmas novel, or do you seem to accept novels also for the beach, equally?
Great question. For romance, we do appreciate a seasonal tie-in, be it Christmas (must have snow), winter (ditto), spring, June weddings, summer, or fall harvest. We don't need a seasonal tie-in for mysteries, and we don't do mystery at Christmas. #hallmark #MSWL
#MSWL Please please please adult epic fantasy that delves into class politics or social issues in societies I've never seen before, with articulate female/nb/trans MAIN characters & explosive stakes. Lots of magic, lots of emotion, romance welcome!
The question we're always asking in romances:
What are the main characters' arcs? How do they grow and change throughout the story to earn their happy ever after?
If you're submitting in February, don't be afraid to spell that out in the query and synopsis! ❤️ #Hallmark #MSWL
Kat Enright @katenrightSo it’s been a while since I did a #MSWL thread, and I’m stuck in the car, so now seems as good a time as any! pic.twitter.com/xf6B32GAhT
Just as a reminder, I am open to MG and YA of all categories, Adult SFF, Adult Romance, and select nonfiction. For my static #MSWL and sub guidelines, please check out my website. Link in bio!
