The rumours are true!!! I am now *all caught up* on pre-April queries, and very nearly caught up on fulls - so my submissions inbox is now open again 💃

To celebrate, I've updated my #mswl on the LBA website AND created a profile on the MSWL website - has most of the same info + extra details on books I love!

As ever, I'm looking for: commercial-leaning fiction & non-fiction in most genres. Surprise me!

It's the one-year anniversary of my submissions inbox (how time flies? maybe?) so to celebrate I've updated my wishlist - AND have expanded my remit to non-fiction as well 📚🎉

If you've got a project that might fit, please write to me! #amquerying #mswl

As much as I would like to deny it, autumn is definitely here - and while I sulk about long dark nights, I would love to find a great mystery/thriller to read by the fire (had I a fire).

Recent read NEVER SAW ME COMING exactly hit the spot: pacy, twisty, and campus-set!

And in a more nebulous ‘wish’, I’d love to read a book where the protagonist DOESN’T achieve their lifelong dream (to ‘make it’ in their chosen career, to have a baby, to win The Prize). What happens then? #mswl

I am also absolutely desperate for a novel based on the Anna Delvey scandal – PLEASE send my way if you’re working on one!!! #mswl

I also thought it might be useful to do a mini #mswl here – books I’ve loved recently, themes I’m thinking over... 👇

FYI I'm open to most genres, but I do only consider commercial and bookclub fiction (nothing too experimental-literary) and I’m not a sci-fi person. #amquerying
