I want to see more stories where the characters embody that “I have decided to become worse” quote. real “I’ll give you something to cry about” energy

in fiction and nonfiction, I particularly want to see more BIPOC, disabled, LGBT+ authors (though please don't feel pressured to disclose anything you're not comfortable with)
more indigenous/non-Western culture, mythology, and tropes

more loves: affairs (not about romance), extremely harsh settings, apocalypses, characters labeled as "crazy" who turn out to be right, sabotage, order quickly devolving into chaos, thelma & louise themes

I do love: fables, gallows humor, absurdism, unsettling atmospheres, unreliable narrators, sympathetic villains, anti-heroes, adventures, revenge-plots, twists that make the reader say "it all makes sense now!"

I'm not the right agent for these kinds of novels: reproductive horror or dystopia, high fantasy, multi-generational family sagas, drama surrounding music or singing

adult books only!
I'm NOT looking for PB, MG, YA, NA or kid lit in any form. I'm also NOT looking for romance or poetry or historical fiction.
(no, your book will not be the one that convinces me to rep [category I don't rep], and I won't/can't respond to those queries, sorry.)

when I reopen to queries, I'm hoping to see a lot more nonfiction! investigative journalism, cookbooks, self-help, climate/environment, + anything that makes a niche subject accessible to a broad audience

today's Stained Page News reminded me how much I love unexpected crossovers (like coding and cooking!), so #MSWL for nonfiction crossovers b/w subjects (esp, food and the environment!)

A #MSWL reminder that I DO NOT REP ROMANCE. my heart is cold and dead and your book is not going to change that (I've tried). But, DO send me your anti-romances like Kevin Can F*** Himself or Paulo Coelho's ADULTERY
