Looking for romantic YA fantasy! Give me stories that hinge on those relationships, the emotional nuance, where we’re in it for the tension and angst and the feels #MSWL

I also adore tropes. Enemies to lovers, marriage of convenience, fake dating, slow burn... I’d love to see marginalized voice playing with these tropes in their books, especially YA fantasy (and romance of course)! #MSWL

I’m also actively looking for Latinx voices in all the categories I acquire. And I mean all Latinx voices: Afro-Latinx, Indigenous, etc.; every one of your stories are welcome in my inbox if you think I might be a good fit. I want more of our stories out there #MSWL

family secrets and relationships. I also do nonfiction in the mind, body, spirit side leaning more towards the spirit category. Tarot and oracle cards, crystals, spell work, mediums, mysticism, witches, etc. are where I make my home #MSWL

and high concept thrillers. I want to see something different and fresh

- For contemporary, I’m looking for stories on the lighter side (friendships, romcoms, family, etc)

For Adult:

Basically what I said above. I also do category romance, women’s fiction centered on #MSWL

For YA:

- I’m looking for any and all kinds of fantasy, from grim dark to the lightest, fluffiest contemporary fantasy

- I’m looking for Gothic stories. I love the concept of monsters, the uncanny, the way it delves into the characters

- I’m also looking for supernatural #MSWL

That voice that drips off the page. I like going through the journey with a narrator that takes me places and grips me until the very end. If the book has solidly crafter characters and voice, I’ll join along for the ride.

Moving on to genres: #MSWL

The overarching things that connect everything I look for are characters and voice. I love delving deep into characters, how they change and feel, how their relationships are and evolve. I love the emotional resonance of this; I love feeling things as I read. I also love #MSWL

Looking for marginalized voices doing tarot decks! I’d love to publish a deck (or several). I have been scouring indie ones, but please send me tarot decks or oracle decks to pub! #MSWL

I am also still on the hunt for a The Mummy/Indiana Jones-esque story written by a BIPOC that tackles colonization. I love artifact finding stories, but we need to talk about the problems #MSWL
