As always, this isn't an exhaustive list. If you think you have something (in the adult space) that you've seen me mention before or that's so insanely well-written you think I'd love it, but you don't see it on the list I posted, please feel free to send me your Dec query.

And finally, since I'm not seeing many of these in my inbox, I'd like to put out a call for Indigenous stories, and not limited to the US region. No limits on the topic either - I'm seeking Indigenous stories of any topic for all age groups (MG, YA, adult). #MSWL

On the YA side, this spans from NOTHING BURNS AS BRIGHT AS YOU to A LESSON IN VENGEANCE.

On the adult side, think QUEENIE or REALLY GOOD, ACTUALLY.

Horror! I'd love to see more YA horror in my inbox, and I'm also opening up to adult horror!

For adult, I'm particularly interested in horror with a social commentary focus.

I'm also open to non-horror social commentary, like YELLOWFACE.

I would really just love some romance with a spec twist in my inbox right now (adult or YA, I'm not picky) -- give me your ghost hunters falling for each other, your vampire crushes, your love spells gone wrong. #MSWL

Actually, not only do I want Spuffy vibes, I would love to see some ADULT vampire romance: give me sex, blood, morally grey (or even totally amoral, done well enough) protagonists, and YEARNING. #mswl

It pains me to do this, but I'll be closing to YA/MG queries for a while starting at the end of this month. My focus right now is on signing adult literary/upmarket fiction & nonfiction, and I want to give fair consideration to my existing backlog of kidlit queries. #MSWL
