This is the most obvious #MSWL ever, but...

I want books like To All The Boys I've Loved Before, in YA and Adult. This means:

--high concept
--romantic
--funny
--diverse!
--contemporary

--HEA

Let's do this!

Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspieller

that might not seem like a ton, but when you consider how many genres I represent across multiple age categories, it is a LOT

When I open to queries again in September, I hope to continue receiving YA Fantasy (because I love it) but I also hope I see more

☻ Middle Grade Fantasy
☻ YA Contemporary
☻ Adult SFF
☻ Adult Psych Thrillers

I'm also looking for upmarket YA Fantasy. I'm a sucker for thoughtful and elegant prose, and deep (not wide) worldbuilding that feels effortless despite it's intricacies. Contemp fantasy, second world fantasy, whatever--it's all great, as long as it sweeps me away. #mswl

Lauren’s the Worst (preorder now💁🏻‍♀️) @laurenspieller · 6 Jul 2018

In YA, I'm craving a high concept contemporary--that means you can pitch in easily b/c it has a HOOK. I love weird jobs, enemies to lovers, unique living situations, and high stakes. #mswl

I'd also love to see more MG Contemporary that showcases friendships, in particular m/f in which a crush isn't part of the plot. #mswl

Adult Contemporary/Romance Writers! I would like to sign a project that reads like Bridget Jones/Crazy Rich Asians/The Hating GAme--funny, fast paced, and clued in to social questions. #MSWL

I love fantasy, but my inbox is crying out for contemporary/realistic fiction. #mswl
