I’d love to see a VIDA in the Rom Com genre. And a Romantasy with Spanglish peppered in the text. Or a grittier, less polished BOLD TYPE! #MSWL

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

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.
