I really want an adult ballet contemporary romance or WF. No Swan Lake retellings... I am fatigued on those. LGBTQ+ or neurodiverse welcome and preferred. #MSWL

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · Apr 6

Picture books (fiction or NF) that show neurodiversity, disability, LGBTQ+ family structures, diaspora or immigrant experiences
Adult NF: I'm interested in cookbooks that teach me something new about the world
#mswl

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · Apr 6

Adult historical fantasy (show me a location or pivotal moment in history I've never seen in SFF)
Contemporary YA (show me how powerful& combustible teenage relationships are)
Middle grade sci fi, contemporary, or fantasy (I'm pretty wide open; nothing is off the table!) #mswl

I am open to multiple genres right now! #MSWL
Adult sci fi (PLEASE send me a shockingly weird and powerful space opera)
Adult fantasy (twisty world politics and shifting loyalties with magic)
Adult romance (something that walks a WF line - the queerer the better, too)

@bookendslit Sigh. No threats, just threads. #EditButtonNeeded

Jumping on this @bookendslit #MSWL pile of awesomeness! I'm still desperate for my contemp YA updated Girl: Interrupted (NOT SFF for this). Mental health, mental health, mental health.
Also seeking MG SFF.
I'd love to see some new adult space opera with #ownvoices elements!

#MSWL But I would love adult contemporary romance that challenges the reader to consider race, culture,& religion as characters navigate the relationship. If you think your book will challenge me to look critically at myself and my privileged white perspective, I want to read it.

#MSWL Looking for adult contemp romance: primarily queer or neurodiverse. I really want to focus on queer and/or autistic relationships and show the broad range of experiences that heterocis/neurotypical creators/characters have tons of page space to show already.

#MSWL Some of my favorite adult fantasy and sci fi titles:
THE TETHERED MAGE by Melissa Caruso, PLANETFALL by Emma Newman, PRIEST OF BONES by Peter McLean, THE POPPY WAR by R.F. Kuang, and STORY OF YOUR LIFE/ARRIVAL by Ted Chiang.

I am currently working through queries I received March 4th. If you queried me prior to then and I have not yet replied, please make sure you've used my query form at queryme.online/naomidavis
Please note I am only open to adult queries at the moment. See my #MSWL 😁

#MSWL I am always looking for less-focused-on characters in adult fantasy. Like, what secrets does the janitor discover in a magical kingdom? What kind of underground ops could this unassuming mastermind run? How about the royal barber? Maintenance? Grocer? Hairdresser?

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · 27 Jan 2019

#MSWL Please please please adult epic fantasy that delves into class politics or social issues in societies I've never seen before, with articulate female/nb/trans MAIN characters & explosive stakes. Lots of magic, lots of emotion, romance welcome!

OPEN TO ADULT QS. #querytip #askagent #MSWL - completed MSs only, follow sub guidelines, be concise and optimistic!
Remember to be excited about your book in your query! Write your Q with all the passion you had when you first dreamed up the story. It will excite me, too!

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS #MSWL - Diversity in all its beautiful forms. Stories that ask important questions. Neurodiverse voices and characters welcome. Lots of #ownvoices.
