I feel like my picks have most been adult SFF, which I *love* btw, but I also really want to have some YA & MG on my list

#MSWL I'm a sucker for epic, historical feeling fantasy worlds, but I'd love to see more epic, modern feeling secondary fantasy worlds and worlds that gorgeously blend historical & modern too!

High stakes & romance get my attention well. MG, YA, Adult/New Adult all welcome!

Adult:
Upmarket, commercial/literary fiction, book-club fiction, magical realism, rom-com/women’s fiction crossover, historical, mysteries that are fun and light with a genre blend, science fiction (whether five-minutes-in-the-future or epic), fantasy, and romantasy.

#MSWL I'd love an Adult/New Adult Harry Potter—witches, wizards, possibly academia (without the JK Rowling baggage of course).

Like THE MAGICIANS but even more accessible and with a strong romance.

7) Another adult nonfiction I’d die to rep (pun intended) is anything about death. Alternative funerals, at home body care, an emphasis on choice. I’d love something by a #deathdoula or an anthology from #hospice nurses.

5) I am obsessed with adult thrillers and would love to find anything that comps to Lucy Foley, Eliza Jane Brazier, Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, May Cobb, Jeneva Rose. Make me connect with characters that have a surprise dark side, and then twist the knife into me at the end!

4) In the adult nonfiction space, I'm dying for books by LGBTQ+ evangelicals who are challenging the Christian space from within the faith and bringing new perspectives (Kate Bowler, Matthew Vines, Rachel Held Evans)

#MSWL I'd love a non-Western✨ vampire ✨book.

MG, YA, & Adult all welcome.

For MG: likely adventure/fantasy based w/magic and/or non-Western mythology.

For the rest: fantasy set in a non-Western world w/sharp stakes & a romance.

Could be 1st or 2nd world fantasy.

#MSWL Basically any rom-com or romantasy (adult, new adult, or YA) that can give me CRAZY RICH ASIANS vibes.

And I'm also looking for YA in *any* category that can do the same.

#MSWL : sports romances! Especially queer and/or BIPOC.
I was hugely into sports as a kid and am specifically looking for super fun rom-coms in this area that'll give you all the feels! (No preference on which sports are featured!) Adult, New Adult, and YA welcome.

I’d love to work on a quirky heist book for the adult market, like DIAL A FOR AUNTIES meets Oceans 11. #MSWL

Adult: SFF & horror! I especially love dark SFF, whether that be epic fantasy or space opera, & I'm interested in horror that intersects with other genres. I'd love to find a horror romance, or a sci-fi horror. Would love a sapphic romantasy & any creepy, queer genre works.

• Adult Romance: swoonworthy, happy, believable romance. Bonus points if it's second chance and dual timeline/pov (Carley Fortune x Emily Henry)
• Adult Fantasy: either with a heavy romance or it’s a subplot, adventurous and immersive fresh takes on a fantasy world
