#MSWL preferably as a romcom? 😅
Where's the YA author writing a rom-com in space? #MSWL
Give me the Nora Ephron quality swoons and smiles from @LaurenEMorrill's books mashed together with the flawless SFF world building from @SanguMandanna and @rhodabee.
It'll be weird. A marketing nightmare. Send it to me.

Jennifer Azantian ❄️☃️❄️ @jenazantianVery specific #MSWL. Brad & Claire are not a couple, but I would love to see a story about chefs who work in a kitchen and bicker/help/push/adore each other like this and fall for each other. Watch this fun series and you'll get what I mean! youtu.be/lD2OOTx2G9k?li…
My husband pointed out that I already have this as a middle grade (shout out the cutest ever A DASH OF DRAGON), but I was thinking older YA and up. #MSWL
I think I would particularly love this as a YA rom-com.
Now that I’m open to queries, I’m going to be tweeting quite a few #MSWL tweets over the next few days!
I’ll start with my first one! Rom coms. I am so craving a good rom com along the lines of Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating. Please just send me all the rom coms! #mswl

alanna bennett @AlannaBennettFull-stop My Best Friend’s Wedding is one of my favorite romantic comedies because the villain is the MAIN CHARACTER and straight up a legendary anti-hero and it’s still so rare to get a rom-com where the main character LOSES.
It has the best rom-com chase scene for that reason pic.twitter.com/PEMPSJTuqb
While my mswl tweets have asked for a lot of doom and gloom recently, I'm also want some feel-good reads (a la DUMPLIN’ ) or a ms with a romantic comedy thread w/ substance and a fantastic hook. Sometimes I just want to cozy up w/ something that will warm my heart #MSWL
Jess Dallow @jldallowI’ve mentioned this before and it’s so specific, but I’m dying for a romcom that takes place at sleepaway camp. I’m talking a classic east coast sleepaway camp: 8 weeks, theater shows, color war themes, rival counselors, boating, late night swims...
local bars (if it’s counselors), dances, art, intramurals, mess hall. Take me back, please! #MSWL
I just ran across this book on Goodreads, and it sounds so wonderfully delightful. If you have a contemporary romcom with a fun hook like this and you're looking for an agent, send me a query! #mswl
