Wednesday is coming up quickly! Agents and editors, please feel free to post your GN wish list and your submission guidelines. Or your plans to be involved. Let's spread the word! Thanks! #KidLitGN pic.twitter.com/IFvYnMNUq8

So excited for this tomorrow! When it comes to graphic novels, I’m open to a wide range, but here are a few #MSWL items: contemporary with a strong voice/distinctive perspective, historical fiction, accessible fantasy, mystery/anything spooky, romance. ♥️ #KidLitGN

PEARL by Molly Ide. A very special tale.

MERMAID AND ME by Soosh. For every little girl who dreamed of having a mermaid best friend! pic.twitter.com/1WvAi2uW3q

I’m so excited to shepherd more mermaid books into the world! It delights me that writers know I love mermaids, because it means a lot of mermaid projects swim into my inbox, which is the best. Keep 'em coming. ✨🧜🏾‍♀️💜

I'm forever on the hunt for more funny picture books. Please send me your humor! I'm open to all types: loud, zany, quirky, strange, dry, subversive, potty, punny. Whatever you got, send it my way! #MSWL

I'm getting a lot of queries for PBs about COVID-19. These probably aren't going to be the right fit for me. I'd be more interested in a book like THE BREAKING NEWS by @sarahlynnereul, which takes a broader approach to scary world events + will have a long shelf life. #MSWL

I’m still on the hunt for an atmospheric graphic novel that centers around a place, the way PUMPKINHEADS centers around a pumpkin patch. #MSWL

In short: my dream book has lovely sentence-level writing that pulls me in to the pages, an interesting plot with a good hook, is accessible but smart, and something with commercial oomph. That’s not asking for too much, right?? #MSWL

3. Romantic Comedies—I’d love to work on “frothy beach reads” that have both humor and heart. I love a strong voice + unique perspective. I need a commercial hook here. #MSWL

If you can picture a group of women splitting a wheel of brie + bottle of Pinot Grigio and talking about your book, send it to me. #MSWL

2. Women’s Fiction! I’d love to find the next Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick. (This is a WISH list, remember?) I love interesting voices/POVs, dual timelines with a historical feel, rhythmic language, generational sagas. #MSWL

Here are some specifics on what I’ll be looking for:

1. Thrillers! I love gritty, juicy, scandalous thrillers. My favorite thriller authors include Gillian Flynn, Jessica Knoll, Lisa Jewell, and I’m excited to read what Samantha Downing + Wendy Heard write next. #MSWL

Hi friends!

*Deep breath*

As of today, I am officially opening to submissions for Adult Fiction. (!!!) I am specifically interested in female-driven Thrillers/Suspense, and Women’s Fiction. Help me spread the word? 💜
