And in YA fantasy, I’m always looking for a lush, fully realized world that feels fresh and new somehow—but also for compelling characters who will root the reader in the story. I’m always game for a really inventive, smart magic system, too. #MSWL

I'm also all about epic, sweeping fantasies. I'd love to see thoughtfully built, fresh-feeling worlds (bonus points if they contain rich magic systems), inhabited by complex characters. And I'm always excited to see fantasy from diverse voices! #MSWL
