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 also want an Adult Fantasy reminiscent of THE CITY OF BRASS--smart, beautiful writing with a great plot that *moves*. #mswl

I'm also looking for BIG WORLDS in SFF. Something commercial and swashbuckling and fun as hell. I want a ROMP. #mswl

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

BIG #MSWL for Crossover/Adult SFF

I'm looking for a book that engages with the abuses perpetrated against indigenous people, in particular women, and the colonizer's legacy of violence and oppression.

Please spread the word. I need this book. The world needs this book.

I'd like a MG Fantasy that features lesser-known creatures of myth and legend (be that because they don't figure as prominently in mythology, or because they are from traditions ignored by the European-centric literary canon). #mswl

There are so many things about Black Panther that I loved, but one of my favorites was the depth of the worldbuilding, and how we saw what life was like without the influence of colonization. I would love to see a SFF project that grapples with similar questions. #MSWL

Saturday Evening Thoughts

I would really love to find an exciting, middle grade adventure/ fantasy set somewhere other than the US or Europe.

Great example: THE SERPENT'S SECRET by @Sayantani16

#MSWL: I'd love to find a YA Historical Fantasy with the kind of incredible voice and expert worldbuilding found in @jessica_shea's remarkable BORN WICKED/Cahill Witch Chronicles.

Also, if you haven't read those books, you. are. missing. out.
