I adored the body horror in BLACK SWAN or SUSPIRIA

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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...
