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.
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
I will post the link to my Query Manager form in two weeks, I can't wait to see your queries in my inbox!
