A rom-com about a hot "it" girl who swears off well-toned abs for well-toned brains called Geek Chic or something equally adorable. Give me some set up like a dating show or dare, wedding, or twist it with a best guy friend whose been the "one" all along helping her search. #MSWL
Putting out an #MSWL call for QBIPOC romance in YA and adult. I want all the steam/heat, yearning, humor, and heart.
pls pls pls send me your f/f romance or rom-coms with diverse MCs in a one-night stand, forced proximity, or in any trope really. ❤️🔥❤️🔥❤️🔥 #romancelandia

I am in love with this. It also feels like a very good plot bunny for #MSWL
It could be horror... it could be rom-com... it could be anything!
Also, I want to go to this place. Or open one here 😈
Saritza🇵🇷Hernández @LitAgentSaritzaI'm finally re-opening to queries. I have a few holes in my list so it's time for a #mswl thread.
- RomComs think Get a Life, Chloe Brown or By Any Other Name (heat value can be low to steamy).
- Historical Romance not set in Regency Era. Bonus points if features BIPOC or Queer main characters.
- Hard SciFi in the vein of Hail Mary or All Systems Red.
My favorite comfort food romcom is Crazy Stupid Love, and I've been sick so I'm rewatching for the 110th time. If anyone captures the absolutely Shakespearean buffoonery of this film but in a novel (and queer probably) I want it very badly, send it to me, do it. #mswl
How’s this for an #MSWL premise: YA romcom. Talented queer girl becomes trainee to be around girls and delay marriage by becoming a star. Right before her debut, she meets the love she’s always dreamed of, and has to choose between becoming a star or living her true dream life.
I open to queries on Friday 4/1! I have a full manuscript wishlist you can see on the #MSWL website, but here are the items I'm looking for in particular:
--Adult suspense & RomCom
--YA contemp w/ a BIG commercial hook
I look forward to hearing from you!
A #MSWL reminder that I DO rep adult work as well—contemporary fiction, romcoms, thriller/mystery, and horror—and am actively trying to build up that side of my list! 🧵
Spring 22 #MSWL:

Absolutely adorable Asian-led sci-fi romcom? Send that straight to my #mswl
“Unique, genre-blending romance novels. For example, The Plus One by Sarah Archer or any of Roselle Lim’s romantic contemporary fantasy novels. Give me an adult rom-com in space, or with magic. Let’s get weird and swoony.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
