Holy crap. If Tender is the Flesh is a comp title for your book, I’d love to consider your query. I will now proceed to stare blankly at the ceiling all night long. 🫠 #MSWL

Very specific #MSWL - fiction & non-fiction with a connection to Croatia. (My grandmother was Croatian, though fled Italy in the late 1930s.) I’d personally love to find an accessible history of the region and/or stories rooted in the Balkans.

Just finished #thisishowyoulosethetimewar and I loved it. Would be great to find a sweeping speculative love story for which this might be a comp title next time I open up for general queries... 👀#mswl

That’s it! For lists of books I acquired/edited at my old job (maybe useful for seeing my children’s fiction taste) plus a list of some of my favorite adult books, check out my bookshop: uk.bookshop.org/shop/kesialupo

4. Adult non-fiction. Politics, history, culture and psychology all interest me plus narrative non-fiction in general - all smart but accessible, nothing too academic!

3. Adult fiction. Commercial genre fiction in SFF, horror, thrillers, historical, romance. In general, I tend towards high concept, plot-driven and love a twist! Please trick me.

1. MG fiction. Accessible MG across genres, including SFF, horror, adventure and contemporary. Stories with plenty of surprises and a strong message. A voice that really taps in to that 9-12 POV.

My #MSWL - now including DETAIL and GIFs! Firstly, I’ve been asked if I will represent authors who live outside the US: absolutely, I’m not limiting myself geographically! Now, onto the interesting bit…
