🌈 Romantasy and speculative queer love stories. I love space ships/fantasy kingdoms but what I love more is knowing how many beds are in the ship/castle
🤌 Characters who kiss (or should) but dont👏 trust👏 each👏 other👏
Please send me more #YA #romantasy #amquerying folks - points for culturally grounded stories, non-western folklore or mythology, and lots of tension, atmosphere, and gorgeous prose! #MSWL #amwriting #writingcommunity #enemiestolovers #friendstolovers
-Dark Whimsy/Cozy Magic
-Twisty murders (LOVE Rian Johnson and if you can comp to the vibes there, even better)
-EPIC Romances (romantasy and romcoms and straight romances)
-Lush worlds and atmospheric writing. #MSWL #YA
Things I love in YA romances: queer love; sex-positivity; steaminess & tension; opposites attract (💜 stoic softies at heart); complex characters; discovering first love & lust; enemies or rivals to lovers; attraction (or battle) of minds; funny romantasy; dark gothic (2/)
#amquerying writers, I'd love to see:
✨️A cosy fantasy like Legends and Lattes - magic meets the mundane in mythical wedding planners or dragons at drama school
💖A dreamy fairy-tale inspired romantasy (soulmates are a plus)
🔎A twisty Knives Out-esque murder mystery
🚨 Alice is reopening only to YA and crossover fantasy queries. Think romantasy, Legends & Lattes, Stardew Valley. Recent favourites include:
- Daughter of the Pirate King
- A Deadly Education
- This Poison Heart
- Iron Widow
Hey #WritingCommunity, I'm back online and my big romantic heart is searching for some new #Romantasy in my inbox. I like mine, fun, contemporary, maybe a little slice-of-life, but open to all sorts.
Ok, let’s talk #fantasy. I’m a fan of #romantasy, and am a sucker for a good love-triangle. I tend to be more urban fantasy rather than high-fantasy. Give me faeries, witches, and vampires any day of the week and I will be happy!
My YA romantasy caveat is that the romance must be between humans. I am not the right fit for fae or elves or orcs or mermaids or aliens or robots.
(However, things that were once human are OK: vampires, werewolves, ghosts). #mswl
That is not the case for YA, though! I really, really want romantic fantasy (or "romantasy").
Give me pining and angst and love triangles. The rush of first love. All that good stuff.
