&/or: More broadly, a project about the weird culture/history of ultramarathons altogether! Would so love for a sports/outdoors writer to pitch me this. #MSWL

I've said this before, but I've been thinking about it a lot in light of the first woman finisher, #MSWL : A dream nonfiction project of mine is a book about the Barkley Marathons that is as Tennessee-spirited & compelling as the '14 "The Race That Eats Its Young" doc.

Current reads: Crying in H Mart (I don’t represent NF, but I love big feelings and complicated mother/daughter relationships), and The Ministry of Time, which is simply exceptional. Sharp, funny, and so original #mswl

A personal reading update in case it’s helpful to see what I’m into right now! I adored How To End a Love Story & Funny Story. I’ve loved Yulin Kuang since her YouTube days, and her debut is funny, romantic, & emotional. And, of course, EmHen remains the romcom queen. #mswl

Gosh, one more #mswl note:

πŸ“– I will happily consider books that were originally self-published or fanfiction
πŸ“– I love webcomics and fan artists and dream of acquiring something that started on apps like Manta or Tappytoon or something original from a popular fandom artist

And for anyone curious on my editorial approach (& whether I might be the right editor for you):

✍️ I worked for Wattpad for 4+ years and heavily favour fast-paced commercial fiction
✍️ I am a copyeditor at heart; internal consistency is king
✍️ I prioritize authorial intent

For a sense of my #mswl acquisition taste (besides books on my own list):

πŸ“šThese Deathless Shores by P.H. Low
πŸ“šThe Prospects by KT Hoffman
πŸ“šPsyche & Eros by Luna McNamara
πŸ“šFourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros
πŸ“šHench by Natalie Zina Walschots
πŸ“šFake Dates & Mooncakes by Sher Lee

And perhaps a helpful anti-mswl (aka what I am not the right editor for):

❌ young adult books (Random House Canada only publishes adult fiction and non-fiction)
❌ hard science fiction (I read it personally, but can’t acquire it)
❌ horror (I am easily scared)
