- 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
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

Where’s this YA romcom? #MSWL
DeidreKnight @DeidreKnightI just re-opened to queries. I had closed for a few weeks. If you have a submission with me, I'm working on reading everything. My reopening to queries doesn't mean I've caught up all reading! 😊 Please see: knightagency.net/submissions pic.twitter.com/Eocb6m7AWW
So what do I want to find, you may ask? Well #amagenting, #amwriting peeps, bring me your fiction right now. Romcom/chick lit, humor, feel-good, queer lit, ya and ya-crossover...hockey/sports. Sports romance. Ya fantasy and romcom. Really want to find queer teen lit. #mswl.
- Literary, character-driven stories featuring diverse ensembles and strong points of view
- Joyful romcoms about marginalized protagonists
- Light fantasy / speculative fiction
#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 😉❤️
