And rememberβ€”if your book doesn’t exactly fit any of these, but you feel your ms would make a good fit based on other tweets/bios/what have you, send it to me!!

I can’t wait to see all the pretties in 2020!! :D

And as always… any and everything queer. AND PARTICULARLY GIRLS KISSING GIRLS.

SIRENS. Not necessarily water-bound sirens but… sirens. I want them.

Dark dark dark DARK. GIMME DARK

And just to be clearβ€”this doesn’t mean β€œmake it as bloody/gross/crude/disgusting as possible (i.e. violence for no reason, sexual assault, etc.). I’m talking themes. Emotions. Difficultβ€”impossibleβ€”decisions. Angry, conflicted protagonists.

YA fantasy! I’m all about witchy blood magicβ€”darker is better (does anyone see a trend here yet). Queer! Enemies to lovers! Magic with consequences! Tangled friend/family relationships! Unique plot lines with lots of tension/conflict! AND DON’T FORGET THE KISSING I NEED KISSING

Haven’t found my novel written in verse yetβ€”particularly wanting this for YA!! Contemporary preferredβ€”again melancholy, mental health/queer centered, darker is better. DYING FOR LYRICAL VOICES HERE.

Cortney Radocaj πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆπŸ’–πŸ’œπŸ’™ @CortneyRadocaj · 30 Dec 2019

Still DYING for horrorβ€”give me Haunting of Hill House vibes. Give me trauma. Give me deep dark black emotions. Give me anger. Give me layered relationships and feelings.

Cortney Radocaj πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆπŸ’–πŸ’œπŸ’™ @CortneyRadocaj · 30 Dec 2019

YA contemporary! I’m dying for a queer story revolving, especially one revolving around mental health. I want unique concepts and HIGH STAKES and lots of conflict. I tend to be drawn to more melancholy tones in contemporaryβ€”but adore humor and light sprinkled throughout!

#MSWL I’ve been craving a novel written in beautiful, melancholic, lyrical verse

*NOTE: I STILL DO NOT WANT COLLECTIONS OF POETRY. V DIFFERENT THINGS*

But novel written in haunting verse...

I saw JOKER yesterday

and uh

if someone wants to give me the psychological study and social commentary regarding mental illness and poverty of JOKER

with the moral ambiguity and superhuman powers of VICIOUS

I would not be mad about it

#MSWL I am DYING for a queer, #ownvoices contemporary surrounding mental health

DO YOU KNOW WHAT I WOULD GIVE FOR A QUEER STORY ABOUT MENTAL ILLNESS WITH A LYRICAL VOICE

(hint: it rhymes with bowl and the devil would be happy to trade me)
