Romantic Comedy

Trisha de Guzman @trishadeg · 19h


- high-concept, darkly comic modern fables with literary writing and crossover appeal like THE PISCES or GEEK LOVE
- eerie and atmospheric fantasies inspired by non-Western mythology
- sweet contemporary rom-coms about QPOC main characters

So #MSWL ahead of reopening on Monday 6/1: contemporary Romances and rom-coms! I have been thinking about the manuscripts I have read lately and loved or the books I have read lately and loved, and this was what they all had in common: they were all romantic books. So gimme!!

I'd love to see LGBTQ+ YA/NA romcoms in my query box. LEAH ON THE OFFBEAT or something like RWRB! I want to laugh, cry, and fall in love. Like anything with the same relationship as David and Patrick. 😍😍😍 #mswl

I would love to see more Adult Rom Com submissions in my inbox! Here are a few of my favorites. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 6d

Throwing this out there, I would LOVE to find some diverse, inclusive rom-coms in my agent life.

Especially anything that's genre-blending, like The Plus One by Sarah Archer (robot engineer builds a wedding date).

Some of my current clients are writing them. Gimme more. #MSWL

Kate Nash @katenashagent · May 21

On my #MSWL is romcom

If you send me your meet cute scene today I will read right away >>>

“Young Adult: LGBTQ+ rom com, psychological horror, a new take on vampires, a girl in a rock band, an eerie mystery.” @msmariavicente #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · May 15

I started watching The Baker and the Beauty and just a quick note, I would die for an adult rom-com like this in my query box. #MSWL.

- Literary, character-driven stories featuring diverse ensembles and strong points of view
- Joyful romcoms about marginalized protagonists
- Light fantasy / speculative fiction

a warm-weather update to my #MSWL: i'm really tapping into my love for funny, steamy, racially diverse rom-coms and would love to see more in my inbox! 🥰

Deborah Nemeth @DebNemeth · May 13

Another one of my favorite tropes is enemies to lovers. I'd love to acquire a romcom series with the feel of the London Celebrities books by @_LucyParker #MSWL

Emily Settle ☕️ 📚 @EmiCalico · May 9

#MSWL Would love to see some YA high fantasy that's not super complex / end-of-the-world serious.

Gimme a queer rom-com between a blacksmith and an adventurer who keeps breaking their equipment or something, idk. Surprise me!

Something that gives me those silly D&D vibes 😉❤️

Anyone wanna send me some f/f rom coms? Because I find myself sorely lacking #MSWL

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · May 6

I cannot WAIT to read Emily Henry's BEACH READ, so this is your reminder that if you've got a laugh-out-loud rom-com, give me a shout! #MSWL
