What I do love to see in the YA Contemporary field are thrillers, hauntings that can toe the line of horror without going overboard, rom-coms, friendship break ups, and grandparent relationships. I especially love to see all this with BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ characters. #mswl
For Adult: I’m also interested in romcoms, fantasy romcoms, and upmarket fiction. I love books set in the South with queer narrators, and I gravitate toward sharp, witty prose. 💖
Hannah @PalindromeToddFollowing a very busy and exciting few months of deals and client signings(!), I thought now would be a great time to update my Manuscript Wishlist! #mswl 🧵
I am DESPERATE for body-positive romcoms in the vein of Bethany Rutter and Julie Murphy. Please don't send me books where a 'weight loss journey' is the central premise. It's a real personal ick! #mswl
Agents! I am eager for new, exciting acquisitions and I updated my #mswl to prove it! Check out what I’m looking for here (spoiler alert: subversive horror, witty rom coms, & unique genre mash-ups): manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/alis…
Meg Skellington 💀 @Megan_ManzanoWhen I reopen to queries, I would LOVE a Halloween rom-com. Or really anything set with Halloween as the background.
I second this! #mswl
sam sims @samsims25Too many Christmas rom-coms, not nearly enough Halloween rom-coms

"Seeking adult rom coms with new twists on classic tropes: friends/enemies to lovers, fake dating, stuck together, opposites attract, second chances."
💕 Romance 🏳️🌈
Including LGBTQ+ romance, YA romance and romantic comedy. I would love an adult Heartstopper or Love Frankie, as well as rom com that is laugh-out-loud funny.
#mswl single parent rom-com / romantic B plot!
Realized a lot of my swoonyy movie faves - one fine day, the holiday, practical magic - all feature parent protagonists finding love (or 2nd love)
Natalie M. Lakosil @Natalie_LakosilI opened to queries today! Here's what I'm looking for! #MSWL
YA: rom coms with a fresh, very commercial hook featuring queer, BIPOC, marginalized voices
dark, gothic, atmospheric horror
The MUMMY for teens
Lastly, high concept love stories and original romcoms are always welcome. I’d love to find new and underrepresented voices in that area that are doing something different. #mswl
Rom coms with all the laughs and fun, especially secret identities/swaps, nerdy romcoms with gamers, librarians, engineers, archivists, romantic interests trapped together in some way, twins and twins – can you imagine the fun with this one! #MSWL
This is a niche ask, but because I’m obsessed with this season of Dimension 20: if anyone has a romcom about two dnd players who can’t stand each other, but it’s advantageous for their characters to fall in love so they flirt in-game, then start to fall for each other irl… #MSWL
