Naomi Davis, Literary Agent
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)
Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix• Fresh, complex aduly fantasy! I do not want to see fae, elves, or other commonly-utilized fantasy creatures. Show me characters realizing their world is way, way bigger (maybe magically?) Than they realized. Bring me intense relationships here. Family drama. FANTASY CLOTHES.
Ignoring the typo... this is always on my wishlist for adult fantasy!!! Also: women with magic of all ages and stages of life, beautiful&interactive fantasy settings, rich cultural influence, and surprising new applications of magic or fantasy elements. #MSWL 1/
Toni Rhodes @rhodestonib@NaomisLitPix Are u looking for kidlit?
Yes, certain genres! MG fantasy and contemp, YA contemp, and picture books with certain themes on my #MSWL
I am open to select Middle Grade projects - fantasy and contemporary. I want to see really unique characters from backgrounds less-often explored in MG. I definitely want to see LGBTQ+ protags and families, other unexpected family structures, & mental health conversations. #MSWL
#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.
#MSWL I am always eager to find new adult fantasy and sci fi projects, but I am extremely selective. Looking for sci fi that changes my entire perception of possibility in the universe. Looking for fantasy that breaks the mold & embraces new magical structures/systems.
Brit E. B. Hvide @bhvideWHY AM I NOT GETTING ALL THE BOOKS ABOUT LADY KNIGHTS?
#MSWL! Bring me a story that is ALL ABOUT BRIENNE OF TARTH (but in a less-typical-medieval-style fantasy landscape with wildly original fantasy/magical elements)
I am opening to YA fantasy and contemporary queries! On my YA #MSWL: fantasies that are entirely new worlds,new fairytales. No generic regency-style fantasy worlds. Bring me new applications of/restrictions on new magic, uncommonly featured stars of the story, relevant parallels.
#MSWL Epic fantasy that asks big picture questions about relevant issues we are facing today, or will face in the near future. W/fully explored settings I've never seen before, women w/unique skills/roles & powerful personalities, and big, high stakes plots.
Naomi Davis The Caffeinated @NaomisLitPixNow that I have your attention after the Discussion of Cheese: #MSWL! Seeking delicious new adult fantasy, with relationships that melt my heart like a good Camembert cheese. Dialogue that's sharp like Cheddar. Twisty politics that transform the world like melting Halloumi.
Still looking for all this melty fun in adult fantasy! #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?
#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!
Naomi Davis is BIRTHDAYING and open to select qs @NaomisLitPixOPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - PILES OF Adult fantasy. If you give me familiar creatures (elves, dwarves) make them & their mythology EXPLOSIVELY different from traditional versions. No romance required, but romance (or just heat!) is welcome, too.
Thank you for all the amazing birthday wishes!!! In case you missed it: I am now open to adult queries and have posted an extensive #MSWL here. Would love to hear about your book if you think it's a good fit! Query me!
