Tips for Hallmark cozy mysteries:
- the police can be misdirected, but not inept
- an amateur sleuth should have good reasons why s/he has a particular knack for solving mysteries, and strong motivations for getting involved.

Stacey Donovan @DonovanesqueI say this all the time, but the best way to know what kinds of things @HallmarkPublish is looking for is to watch a few current Hallmark movies. #CountdowntoChristmas is coming right up, but we'd like winter, spring, summer, and fall romances, too! #amwriting #querying #MSWL
Reminder that Hallmark Publishing is open to unagented submissions in the month of February '19: contemporary romance and contemporary cozy mystery, 65,000 words minimum. Complete submission guidelines here: hallmarkchannel.com/hallmark-publi… #MSWL #publishing #amwriting
Stacey Donovan @DonovanesqueAt Hallmark Publishing are closing to unagented submissions after Labor Day, BUT, we will take unagented submissions during the month of Feb. '19! Here's a big thread about what we're looking for. #MSWL #publishing #amwriting #1linewed #romance
For now, we're only looking for full-length novels, 65K - 85K, and we're only looking at sweet (sometimes called "clean and wholesome") romance and cozy mystery. The romance can straddle the line of women's fiction. #MSWL #publishing #amwriting
