For #YA send me all your charming rom-coms, your heartfelt exploration of sibling dynamics, thrillers that will keep me up at night turning the pages, and all the southern gothic you can handle. Oh & anything with hints of magic. I LOVE contemporary fantasy & light fantasy #MSWL

In #MG #MSWL I’d love to see: upbeat contemporary, magical realism, fun-filled fantasy adventures, charming mysteries with strong hooks, as well as stories that deal with shifting friend groups, activism, and projects that feature pets (especially dogs!) (3/)

as well as stories that deal w/ navigating sibling relationships (ala I’ll Give You the Sun) light fantasy with new magic systems, stories set in isolated places filled with secrets, unreliable narrators, and as always I would love to see more #ownvoices #YA #MSWL (2/)

Happy #MSWL Day! I am ABOUT to close to queries but in #YA I’d love to see fun historical (think A Gentleman’s Guide), or historical with dashes of magic, contemporary fantasy, southern gothic, projects featuring WITCHES, rom-coms w/ strong hooks (1/)

The best part about a little time off is getting to read real, published books 😊 Just finished Sawkill Girls and it won’t leave me alone. I’d love to see more gorgeous fantasy horror or fantasy thrillers in my inbox—something in that vein. #ya #mswl

I'm a fan of fantasy, but specifically would LOVE to see more contemporary fantasy right now. Looking for something that is just fun to read--the perfect escape. Also would be open to alternate historical fantasy. #YA #MSWL

Also! I’d love to see more #ya #ownvoices #fantasy. I seriously can’t get enough YA fantasy 😍 I’d especially like to see projects where the plot isn’t centered around the MC overthrowing an evil ruler. #MSWL

Just to clarify, I'm not AGAINST seeing projects w/ an evil ruler being dethroned. I just receive a high volume of these types of submissions so I'm super picky (I recently received a few emails saying "I hate this, too!" And I'm like nope, nope not what I was saying! 😂) #MSWL
