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)

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.

WHY 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)

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · 22 Apr 2019

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.

Hands up if you like your fantasy DARK and emotional!!!! #MSWL

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · 4 Mar 2019

#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.

#MSWL weird weird weird weird weird weird weird epic fantasy!

I desperately want contemporary or fantasy romance novels with trans main characters where there is no bullshit transphobic reaction to the MCs transness from anyone anywhere ever. #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!

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

OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult fantasy w/shocking connections between characters and setting, intricately explored in the culture and through the magic. Think BROKEN EARTH TRILOGY by N.K. JEMISIN.
