I've got a lot of dark fiction submissions in my inbox right now—which is great, I love dark fiction—but I'd love to see some more happy, lighthearted stories too! #mswl

That's it for now, but honestly, if I sit down and think about it, I'm sure there are many more things I could specifically request, LOL. To be continued!

7. I'm a fan of tons of tropes, but honestly, I love a good rejected mate style story as long as there is either a) A FANTASTC grovel/begging for forgiveness or b) the heroine dumps their "fated" mate and finds someone SO MUCH BETTER, SO THERE.

6. Guys, I'm being super vulnerable here, but? I just can't quit contemporary omegaverse romance. I am determined to sell one to NY. Preferably with a terrible pun on the word Knot in the title.

5. AANHPI heroes and heroines. Please! My dad was born on Guam and I am of partial Chamorro and Japanese descent. I would love to rep Asian authors. And if the hero looks like Manny Jacinto, EVEN BETTER.

3. Books with artist heroes/heroines. I don';t know why I love it, I just do! Something about a creative type just does it for me.

2. Rockstar romances. And by this, I mean books that actively take place in the music industry, show touring life, shows, songwriting, etc. I don't want wallpaper rockstar romances!

At the risk of causing a stampede in my subs, here are some of my #MSWL niche requests and somewhat guilty pleasures. (Although honestly, I am a guilt-free reader and refuse to be shamed for any of my reading choices, no matter how wild.) 1/?

MISC:

-I’m looking for illustrated graphic novels in MG and YA (I’m not taking script ONLY atm)
-I am open to the occasional PB with a focus on stories about culture and family or navigating the world through a different lens
-I always have my eye out for more Canadian authors!

MIDDLE GRADE

I’m very selective with MG and am primarily looking for heartfelt, lyrical contemporary right now. I am also open to speculative fiction in MG with a preference for contemporary fantasy—I have a soft spot for quirky or snarky characters/voices in this space.

In YA, I am NOT typically the right fit for historical, high fantasy or sci-fi with heavy worldbuilding, European-inspired fantasy settings, Arthurian retellings, space operas, dystopian, teen pregnancy stories, eating disorders, horse books, zombies.

In YA I’m also looking for:
-mystery
-horror
-retellings/reimaginings (that don’t stick TOO CLOSE to the source)

Genre-blending narratives
-mysteries/suspense/thrillers set in more sci-fi or fantasy worlds
-speculative romance
-horror elements blended into SFF (cosmic horror-esque)
-surprise me!!

SFF
-lower SFF/accessible worldbuilding
-contemporary fantasy (whether light and fun or dark and spooky)
-magical academies/dark academia
-thought-provoking sci-fi
-near future or tech focused sci-fi (versus space operas)
