Really would love more Contemporary Graphic Novel storylines in general, for all ages

For Historical, things that are NOT WW1 or WW2 unless from a POV that isn't German, Polish, English, French, or American

SUPER picky with Adult right now! Mainly contemporary, graphic novel, & historical. Fantasy worldbuilding MUST be on point & want more non-American/English storylines

Para romances not at top of my list
Looking for rom-coms, but selective

Adult

GN - all genres but especially horror, dark fantasy, or LGBTQ+

Novels - romance, contemporary, historical, and MAYBE fantasy. Super picky there. Really want horror like Babadook or Midnight Mass or Haunting of Hill House

YA GN

again, I am dying for more LGBTQ+ and historical; would love contemporary, fantasy, and horror here, too

Think outside the box. For YA, it needs to be something that totally immerses me in the characters or the world or the emotions

Kaitlyn Johnson - Closed to Queries @RedPenKaitlyn

Hey all! I am planning to re-open to queries on OCTOBER 20! In honor of that, here is a #MSWL thread of what I'll be looking for: pic.twitter.com/tXMSZskZ3L

MG Graphic Novels

I want ALL THE MG GN! Looking for slice of life, LGBTQ+ characters and first crushes, kids who can lean on each other and don't run to parents to solve problems.

All genres welcome here #amagenting #mswl

#mswl I would love a graphic novel concept that's kids starting friendships through windows across the street or next door because of social isolating! Things one does to make the other happy and so on =]

I think I'd also love a MG GN where it focuses on divorce/grief and how kids cope or lean on one another/pets/neighbors/hobbies to find a way forward. Bittersweet but meaningful #querytip #amagenting

Lastly, until I think of more, definitely send me MG STEM-infused plots and POC characters and boys who are allowed to feel/girls who are smart and capable and sassy. Truly looking for tons of GN in the MG sphere #amagenting #querytip

would also LOVE dark GN with creatures from lesser known legends/cultures

on that note, give me historical GN! Give me time periods in new places with new people and their part in that event. I'd love POC and how they affected certain wars/spy networks/etc. #amagenting #querytip

This can all be for MG, YA, and Adult btw.

I'd love a spec fic with modern witches (small spells, hanging herbs, cats and comfy seats to read the grimoire). Think Sabrina bet less superpower and more everyday crystals, brews, etc. #querytip #amagenting

Also hungry for contemporary with LGBT, mental health, and disability rep. Not necessarily issue book plots for GN, but characters in their lives (I'd LOVE Fantasy with disability rep!) #amagenting #querytip

In GN, looking for Fantasy with lush worlds and diverse casts. I want this to be something where magic is infused into society or daily living. A place where we're reading more for the people and place. I'd love to see an eco-one focusing on resources, too #amagenting #querytip
