When I reopen to queries in Jan., my wishlist is going to look different than it does now. In adult fic, I am really going to want to see upmarket fiction & book club fiction, literary fic, rom-coms, mystery, domestic & psychological thrillers, horror, & grounded speculative fic.
Onto adult! Romance across categories/romcoms, particularly queer and/or BIPOC. Anthing comped to Alyssa Cole, Olivia Waite, Cat Sebastian, Georgia Beers, Beverly Jenkins, Rebekah Weatherspoon, Talia Hibbert, Alexandria Bellefleur, Rosie Danan, Roselle Lim, Alisha Rai... #MSWL
Find me a Black Jewish MG or YA! Please! Maybe a romcom or a mystery or a love story? Preferably not about anti-Semitism and definitely not about the Holocaust or WW2. Something substantive and joyful! (And I’m ok w/not substantive, just pure fun, too!) #MSWL
Mara Delgado-Sánchez is reading subs @little_mswriterLooking for Indigenous Latinx, Afro Latinx, etc. stories! YA or adult (romcoms, crossover fantasies, or a big juicy love story!) #MSWL
This is my monthly tweet that I would give away my kingdom for a Latinx fantasy #MSWL
I am VERY INTO the upcoming Kristen Stewart LGBTQIA+ Christmas movie and want to just drown myself in it. But I also want to read about bff Dan Levy finding love too; someone please give me a Dan Levy romcom. #MSWL
Nicola @NicolaYoonAnd the secret’s out! Beyond thrilled to announce that I co-write a novel with 5 of my favorite writers ever! Swoony love stories with Black kids falling for each other during a NYC blackout! @brownbookworm @angiecthomas @WriteinBK @getnicced @AshWrites
This sounds AMAZING! I can't wait to read it. And (I've been saying this A LONG TIME NOW) querying authors–particularly Black authors–please send me your love stories! I'm dying for YA romance & romcoms by Black people and other people of color. #mswl
I want something that comps to Today, Tonight, Tomorrow by @rlynn_solomon. One of the things I love about this sweet, funny story is the tension & pace. The whole book happens in the course of 24 hours. It's a terrific enemies to lovers #romcom. Give me more of that energy! #mswl
Hey, #amquerying writers, some #MSWL items for my holiday wishlist...
🌈❄️ Holiday adult rom com. My heart yearns. Do want. Give them to me. I really—ok you get the drift.
🌈✨Adult fantasy reminiscent of GIDEON or PRIORY OF THE ORANGE TREE or THE ONCE & FUTURE WITCHES.

I have not looked at my queries all week because sending a rejection this week would just be too mean. So, I don't know what's in there. I'm REALLY hoping for lots of queer stories & tons of submissions from #BIPOC & #Latinx authors. #yalit #romcom #middlegrade #MSWL 🤞🏽
My head is swirling around random thoughts today, but you know what I’d love to see in my inbox???? A sarcastic and wonderful holiday book: nonfiction—cooking book or DIY decorations and their meanings (love learning about traditions) or fiction—YA rom-com. #MSWL
My #MSWL of the moment can be split into two camps: delightful cottagecore uplit or romcom with perhaps a VERY light magical touch or delightful cottagecore turned haunted horror: Midsommar meets The Invited.

I'm closing to queries November 1st and won't reopen until the new year! I recently signed some awesome authors and I'm going to focus on them. However, I'm still searching for a couple more clients to meet a gap in my current list. (See #mswl thread below.)
Hey #mswl! I'm closing tomorrow and would love more queries before I do. Still looking for a good MG and a romcom!
