I would kill (not really) for a fresh take on a procedural novel series. Give me your unlikely duos. Your psychics. Your grouchy old timers. But in a new way. #MSWL

OK this is a specific one, but I want a book that feels like a Brandi Carlile song. #MSWL

If you're at all unsure if your project is the right fit, try me with a query anyway. I am always looking for debuts that feel fresh. #MSWL

I think I haven't mentioned what I'm looking for in a while: thrillers for adults and romance/rom-com for adults that have fresh hooks. Upmarket fiction from underrepresented perspectives. I am not open to expanding my children's list at the moment. #MSWL

I'd love to see a covid front lines memoir (or realistic fiction) from a doctor or nurse #MSWL

Schitt's Creek is a romance novel.

I should be more transparent: I’d kill to see the adult contemporary romance novel version of Schitt’s Creek in my inbox #MSWL

There's a certain type of warm, comfortable fiction for adults that takes place in a bookstore (or similar environs) (like THE STORIED LIFE OF AJ FIKRY or anything by Jenny Colgan) that I'd love work on #MSWL

I'd particularly like to see more thrillers of all sorts featuring BIPOC protagonists. (I have asked for this in the past and received great submissions, and I cannot wait to see even more.) #MSWL

I’d love some more contemporary romance for the new year that celebrates odd duck leads. Characters for whom the lid and the pot are unusual sizes and shapes— that it really took serendipity to match them up. #MSWL
