Amy Giuffrida @kissedbyinkI am re-opening to queries tomorrow and will stay open for a week!
Here are a few things I am hoping to find in my inbox September 1st - September 7th:
Adult book club, commercial manuscripts that could comp: So Happy For You, Counterfeit, Killers of a Certain Age, If I Had Your Face, The House in the Pines, All My Rage, White Ivy, or Patricia Wants to Cuddle.
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.
Here are the ADULT GENRES I am seeking in 2022:
Book Club/Commercial Fiction
Historical Fiction - with a contemporary feel
My ADULT wishlist is sparkling & new!
In addition to dark and gritty, I really want to read about people’s joy. I want to laugh and cry with your characters and root for them to the very end. I want to read about people I don’t know, but become my best friend in the end.
Thrillers! MG, YA, or adult. I want to sit on the edge of my seat. I want to question the narrator. If you have something like The Flight Attendant or You, then send away.
2. Adult rom-com or contemporary romance set during the holidays—I love Christmas, but I’d love to see diverse holidays celebrated also.
#MSWL I’m DESPERATELY NEEDING a YA or adult romance where a sweet couple falls in love—no insta love. I want to see their journey, whether it’s f/f, m/m, f/m...love is love. I just want ❤️ and laughter and kindness with lots of friends and family and community.
