#mswl when I open to queries in a few weeks I’d be interested in a romcom action/ adventure. Especially if it involves treasure and islands or jungles. I’m not officially open to romcoms so query me under the action/ adventure category and mention this mswl in the query.

"In rom coms, my favorite tropes are friends-to-lovers, fake dating, and second chance romance—though I'm open to other tropes! If you have a new twist on these classic tropes, I'd love to take a look."

I’m late to #MSWL day but: still desperately seeking a rom-com to sweep me off my feet (& onto a cushioned window seat, where I will read all day!). If your take on the genre is fresh & funny & swoony enough to make me forget everything on my calendar, then please submit to me!

In YA, Dark Academia with a haunting setting: creepy tunnels, secret societies, and characters with questionable motives/abilities 🏰

Rom Com's 💕 Slow burning romances. Bonus points if it's with an out of school setting

Fantasy 🪄 New spin on magic world and/or powers

Several of my YA romance writers are pivoting to adult and I am having a great time with it, so I'm opening to adult rom-coms for the first time! Still not the best fit for genre romance, but send me your funny, layered, high-concept mainstream rom-coms.

—Adult + YA RomCom that are FUNNY AF *or/and* Adult Romance w a magic/spec twist
—Suspense/Thrillers (we need more queer and POC rep in this category!)
—MG Fantasy! All kinds!

I’d love to see a VIDA in the Rom Com genre. And a Romantasy with Spanglish peppered in the text. Or a grittier, less polished BOLD TYPE! #MSWL

Tacos, dogs, and books, not necessarily in that order. Crafter in training. Coffee enthusiast. Assistant editor for @Sourcebooks . Opinions are my own.

#MSWL: Light paranormal romance, especially paranormal romantic comedy
Gothic romance/Gothic fiction
Uplit, feel-good women’s fiction, especially with speculative elements
Dark/darkly funny women’s fiction and romantic comedy (think Love in the Time of Serial Killers)

And yes, give me romances and romcoms, but give me some substance outside of the romance itself––increase the stakes with external conflicts and complex side characters. #MSWL
