Though I'm still closed to queries & will open BRIEFLY in April for Hist Fic & YA Myst/Thrillers, here's my full #MSWL. I'll open again after my brief April opening & will want everything on this list and more! So work on your queries and edit those pages!

I'm still closed until about April. BUT...I'll reopen for about 1 week only & will give advance notice here. I'll be looking for ONLY HISTORICAL ROMANCE (Regency, preferred) & YA Mystery/Thriller. Strong desire for BIPOC & LGBTQ authors/stories. So get those queries ready!

#MSWL #YA with an Elite (or very close) level gymnast making the very difficult decision to leave the sport, either due to injury or burnout.

If you have this while I’m closed to queries, DM me for a link.

#MSWL: While I'm closed to queries right now, I'm DYING for a ghosty-spooky story with an UNRELIABLE narrator like WE WERE LIARS meets THE SIXTH SENSE. If you have it, pitch it in ONE tweet below. ONLY If I ♥️it, send me a DM & I'll give you a special link to query me. #A #YA

#MSWL #A #Mystery #Thriller #Suspense: I'm a huge fan of the following authors: Mary Kubica, Ruth Ware, B.A. Paris, Heather Gudenkauf, Charlaine Harris, Victoria Laurie and Juliet Blackwell (to name a few). I'd really love a #YA Mystery. Also love #ghost-y and #paranormal aspects

#MSWL #YA: I love RomComs and anything with a ghost-y or #supernatural quality. #LTBTQ+, #OwnVoices and #BIPOC authors are always welcome. I do still like issue-driven YA, but am looking for something super-edgy in this realm.

#MSWL for when I'm wearing my agent's hat...

I'm DYING for a contemporary YA or ADULT #RomCom like Dreaming by @Jill_Barnett. I read it YEARS ago and it's one few books of any genre I've kept a copy of & reread. So read it and write me something like it!
