If you hit anything on my wishlist, send it! If you have a little mix of a few things, send it! But if it's on my NO list, it's not for me...

In non-fiction, if you have a strong platform or the credentials to support your writing, I am open to most ideas. A strong narrative voice that will draw me is especially important.

Lastly, I have a wide-range of adult stories I'm seeking--many are the same from last year. BUT I am really into finding a paranormal romance and romantic suspense in 2023. My steam level varies, but the plot matters more than the sexiness. I don't rep erotical.

Teens who run illegal gambling rings--cards or sports--is an interest. Love when teens are smart, make their own money, and fool everyone!

So many teens are reading a particular author, but I really would LOVE an authentic teen contemporary romance. The emotional rollercoaster. The disapproving parents. Messy. Concentual. Sweet. NOT written for adults--think the new season of Ginny and Georgia.

I mention sports stories in my #MSWL, but I really want them in conjunction with romance, mystery, or horror. Give me a teen looking to break out as a MMA fighter who is solving the murder of her trainer, while falling for the killer...I will faint.

My middle grade list is fairly full, so I am only looking for: magical realism, contemporary, or mystery series (or with series possibility).

In all age categories, whether angsty or joyful, I will especially focus on stories written by traditionally underrepresented creators.

This is the first time I am open to Picture Books! I am selectively looking for: whimsical and funny stories, especially those that showcase diversity. Family and friendship themes are my favorite. It's a plus if you are an author/illustrator, but not a must.

Non-fiction from those with a strong platform, especially written by BIPOC creators. Can be a unique perspective regarding art, science, food, current issues, mental health, etc.

Angsty YA with messy charactersโ€”these are my favorite! I want to see teens make mistakes, learn from them, and move on.
