Already obsessed with this movie. Also—this premise is a great example of a "high concept rom com." #MSWL 💕
SPECULATIVE—I’d love to find adult fiction with light touches of magic such as magical realism, cozy fantasy, or magic-tinged rom coms. THE INHERITANCE OF ORQUÍDEA DIVINA, THE VERY SECRET SOCIETY OF IRREGULAR WITCHES, THE EX HEX, and EMILY WILDE’S ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF FAERIES. #MSWL
ROM COMS—I love rom coms, especially when there is a high concept commercial hook. My favorite tropes are grumpy/sunshine, enemies to lovers, fish out of water, forced proximity. Some of my all-time favorites are: BEACH READ (elite), THE UNHONEYMOONERS, and REAL MEN KNIT. #MSWL
Mallory Marlowe ADD L&OC ON GOODREADS! @mallory_marlowe• adventure/high stakes rom coms
• paranormal romance that gives the magic of all the PNR books I read in high school, just for adults
• rom com inspired by the grumpy TikTok chef who critiques peoples weird recipes and a girl who goes viral for deliberately awful recipes twitter.com/lilwritinwonde…
Well, now I hav to add this to my #MSWL, I love Chefreactions and this is brilliant Mallory. ❤️ 👨🍳
• rom com inspired by the grumpy TikTok chef who critiques peoples weird recipes and a girl who goes viral for deliberately awful recipes.
I’m going to post a more detailed #MSWL thread soon, but in the meantime—here’s a big picture overview of what I’m looking for this year! ✨
"For rom coms, my taste veers towards genre-blends, i.e., a rom com that's also a family saga or a romcom com that's also a thriller. DIAL A FOR AUNTIES by Jesse Q. Sutanto is a great example and my all-time favorite rom com."
- BIPOC and queer romcoms with depth and heart!!!!
- Speculative thrillers
- Contemporary, literary stories, with hints of magical realism
In MG & YA (incl GNs by Author-Illustrators):
•Diverse contemporary stories and romcoms
•Grounded sub-genres like horror or mysteries
•Novels by marginalized writers w/ stories yet told
•Stories that take you on an adventure and an emotional roller coaster all at once
Saint (S.T.) Gibson UPDATES @s_t_gibsonMy new #MSWL is live on my site! Mark your calendars for Valentines Day, when I repoen to #amquerying writers!
So, what am I seeking? This year I'm prioritizing queer specfic, BIPOC voices, and romance novels of all kinds. Let's dive into the specifics!
Boosting the #MSWL tonight!
Romance writers, I want to meet you! Please send me your erotic romances, your historicals, your romcoms, your villain and monster romances, your romantasies!
Rom-coms – Funny with smart dialogue, and tons of witty banter between the romantic leads! Nothing overly corny or predictable. For adult: BOOK LOVERS, RED WHITE AND ROYAL BLUE, THE LOVE HYPOTHESIS, GET A LIFE CHLOE BROWN. For YA—love Gloria Chao’s books!
Christa (Heschke) Cifelli @ChristaHeschkeAuthors! I’m excited to tell you about my #MSWL for 2023. Some big changes this year! A thread:
This year, I’ll be looking first for MG, then YA, then adult, then PB. My preference is for dark genre work (fantasy, horror, suspense) and rom-coms/lighter contemporary! I’m newly open to adult rom-coms after falling in love with a few last year. 😁
Romance—way more of it! Rom-Coms so funny that make me snort out my coffee, historicals with so much tension I want to pull my hair out, adventure/caper romance that takes me on a nailbiting ride or presents me with a mystery to solve. #MSWL
YA romcoms or YA contemporary with romantic elements. Especially if they're queer! Think Heartstopper, Young Royals, You Should See Me in a Crown, I Kissed Shara Wheeler, etc. The cuter and fluffier, the better.
Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRothMaking a rare Twitter appearance to say:
- I reopened to queries today.
- I am now open to adult contemporary, commercial fiction (romcom, romance, mystery/thriller, etc) 😬
- I am scared.
As far as what I want in adult: Good hooks, gripping plots, strong characters. I either want light, funny & swoony for the romcom/romance, or layered, smart and edge-of-seat for the thrillers. Sticking with commercial, contemporary for adult for now. No SFF. #mswl #querytip
--A Rom-Com+. A great romance with high quality writing and a meaningful B-plot, like Joya Goffney's EXCUSE ME WHILE I UGLY CRY. (or the romance could be the B plot)
--Sweeping, cinematic adventures with a fun romance
Stefanie Rossitto #MSWL: always like to see dynamic, feminist and complex heroines that can tackle any challenge and change the way we think about society and community (rom-com, romance, women's fiction)
