To query me, paste the first chapter of your manuscript and your query in my QM form (QueryManager.com/ClaraChuiton)!

I try to answer all queries in under two weeks, but my workload does not always allow it. Feel free to nudge me if you have not received a reply after three weeks!

As always, I am looking to amplify the voices of BIPOC, disabled, and LGBTQ+ authors. Anything set somewhere other than America is likely to catch my eye, and so are projects with non-binary and trans MCs.

For sci-fi manuscripts, the softer and cozier the better. Anything set on a spaceship, with a strong romantic subplot, a diverse cast, and high, commercial stakes, will sweep me off my feet.

I would love to see more high-concept horror, in settings or time periods that feel new. Queer horror (think THE DEAD AND THE DARK or WILDER GIRLS but adult), gothic, and psychological horror are my favorites, but I never know what I'm going to fall in love with!

For the romance genre, some of the keywords that pique my interest in a query are: sapphic, #ownvoices, rom-coms, historical, nerdy, fun, fantastical, rivalry, and academia.

If your query contains one or two (or more) of these words, I'd love to read it!

I'm open to queries again! Which means it's about time for an updated ✨2022 MSWL✨

I am still focusing exclusively on adult genres, with my priority being romance, science-fiction, and horror. #MSWL

I will be looking for adult romance mostly (every category), but also science-fiction and horror! Strong voices and unusual settings are the best way to pull me in. #MSWL
