But I am still relatively new and not burned out by this industry yet... And we are really excited over at Romantic Suspense to find new authors, especially authors writing diverse perspectives, so if you have questions, hit me up! My full wishlist is pinned in my profile.

We updated our romantic suspense guidelines last year and are actively doing outreach to find authors who are writing LGBTQ+ stories. I know that category romance in general and Harlequin in particular have not always been quick to embrace stories from underrepresented voices.

Suspense/Mystery/Thriller set at a vacation destination #mswl

Gloomy, threatening, or naturally dangerous settings can go a long way in a thriller. But there’s something terrifying about bad things happening in beautiful, “safe” locations we associate w/ escape. This is a #mswl tweet but also promo for YOU CAN TRUST ME by @wendydheard

(And as always, if you can pitch your manuscript as "Twin Peaks meets romance" I will drop everything to read it. I am fully convinced this idea makes for a great romantic suspense novel and I will drop everything to read it.)

#mwsl: Our Harlequin Romantic Suspense line is woefully lacking in LGBTQ+ representation. Anyone have a great f/f romantic suspense novel they want to send me? Cagney & Lacey vibes, or a Jessica Fletcher/Miss Marple team up? Let me know. harlequin.submittable.com/submit

And just because I didn't add any historical romance, romantic suspense, etc. doesn't mean we're not acquiring it! I'd love to read those projects too. :) Check the guidelines for a full list of genres we're currently looking for.

Lastly, I have a wide-range of adult stories I'm seeking--many are the same from last year. BUT I am really into finding a paranormal romance and romantic suspense in 2023. My steam level varies, but the plot matters more than the sexiness. I don't rep erotical.

#MSWL Would love a Love Inspired or category length romantic suspense novel with an "undercover" hook. Could be heroine is under cover or the hero, but I'd love to read that. Would like an unusual setting too. Maybe an island near Portland or Seattle, or Caribbean, cruise ship?
