Writers, I really want to add something like Anna & The French Kiss to my list. Gimme your angsty teen romances, please!

#mswl romance edition.
I'd love to see something where the two protags are trying to bump up their TV ratings or their popularity rating (in YA or adult) and start fake dating and post cute pictures if themselves on insta. Only to actually fall in love!
Make it queer.

So I watched the Batman: Hush animated movie last night... I preferred the comics, but it did immediately rekindle my love for Selina/Bruce. So if your book has a Selina/Bruce type of romance/dynamic... I'd love to see it when I reopen to submissions #mswl

Would it be impossible to write a book about a teen who somehow exists in two different time periods at the same time? Like her lives actually overlap in some way. She thinks it’s only her but a guy in town experiences the same and they realize it & their past connection #R #MSWL

Also #MSWL:
- Psychological thrillers with romantic elements
- Cozy Mysteries (think @HallmarkPublish style)
- Rom Coms
- Small town romances with strong community ties and series potential
- Holiday romances
- Picture books with a great story, no rhyming ones at the moment.

Send me plus-sized MC for your romances #mswl

I would love stories dealing with the highs and lows of relationships of all kinds- sibling, friendships, parental, work-related, romantic, #mswl

In #YA I’m looking for #horror, contemporary #romance, #sff with strong world-building and action to drive the story, magical realism, and paranormal

#AntiMSWL & #MSWL I prefer contemporary over historical romance unless the historical has some REALLY nifty hook, though I dig fantasy in a feudal setting. I don’t rep picture books and rarely chapter books, but I’m all about middle grade (with upper MG my sweet spot!)

Favorite romance tropes that AREN’T hate-to-love, go!

rivals to lovers (not the same thing!), friends to lovers, fake dating, secret identity shenanigans, there's only one bed #mswl

Speaking of BFFs to lovers, did anyone ever make a marriage pact with their BFF when they were in high school? Like, “if we’re not married by the time we’re 40, we’re gonna marry each other.” Curious to see if anyone had this, and if they did, I want my BFF to lovers MS. #MSWL
