Adult only this time. Mostly romance and nonfiction, but other genres as well:
Mystery, thriller, suspense, contemporary and a bit of fantasy.
Adam is looking for #MG fiction featuring #LGBTQ characters in the vein of SIMON SORT OF SAYS by Erin Bow! He is especially interested in contemporary, horror, light fantasy, and graphic novels. Check out his #MSWL and querying information below:
Sleep is important but...I stayed awake dreaming of a compulsively readable thriller about a famous woman's descent into madness, drawing heavily from Perfect Blue and Black Swan. Agents if you have it, send it. #MSWL
Please someone send me a grownup Veronica Mars. I'm talking that hard boiled-but-not, sassy detective with a heart of gold. A cast of secondary characters that capture your whole heart and a star-crossed romance with an HEA wouldn't hurt either. #MSWL
"I'm open to a range of nonfiction, including cookbooks and food writing, sports, pop culture, music, psychology, lifestyle, wellness, and narrative nonfiction. I'm interested in topics that are approached from a unique perspective."
