I'd love to see in my queries:

- Atmospheric, woodsy, lush horror like THE YEAR OF THE WITCHING (YA, A)
- Domestic/psychological thrillers by BIPOC authors (A)
- Scavenger hunts (MG, YA, A)
- Eerie spec fic in isolated settings (CATHERINE HOUSE, THE WATER CURE)

I would LOVE a queer adult WF or genre work that could be compared to Michaela Coel’s Chewing Gum #MSWL

YA and emerging-adult nonfiction about wellness and self-improvement with a fun voice or visual elements. I particularly would love to see wellness mss that are sensitive to class/economic limitations! #MSWL

I love a closed-system story: think submarine or generation ship. How do you survive and navigate conflicts when there's no escape? #MSWL

I'm a sucker for a great first-contact SF with really interesting aliens and the real sense of discovery of a new world—but with a real understanding of the conflicts of colonialism. THE SPARROW is the goal here. #MSWL

Solar system or galaxy-spanning space opera. (NO humanoid aliens though!) Big story, big scale, big worldbuilding. Lotsa spaceships. #MSWL

OK, time for the fun part of being open to queries again: #MSWL. Here's some specific things I'd love to find. (This isn't everything though! I'm open to anything great that's adult SFF.)

A big-idea philosophical abolitionist SF. Think THE DISPOSSESSED. Show me a world where how we address violence and harm is totally different, and what stories that engenders. (I really, really want this, but it really, really, no kidding, has to be great to work.) #MSWL

I often struggle to come up with very specific #MSWL suggestions (mostly I'm like "send me stuff, I'll know it when I see it!"), but this one just struck me. Someone send me THE SECRET HISTORY set at a summer camp. Must be positioned for an adult audience.

Schitt's Creek is a romance novel.

I should be more transparent: I’d kill to see the adult contemporary romance novel version of Schitt’s Creek in my inbox #MSWL

Where is the Adult Women's Fiction that transforms The Hangover or Bridesmaids into something very black or BIPOC and very queer? #mswl Fuck, give me A Devil Wears Prada that's but with anything but the corporate world. Black, BIPOC, queer only.

Reminder! I am only open to agented fiction submissions, unless you are a BIPOC writer. Details in the submission section of my #MSWL. I am open to all adult nonfiction submissions—agented or not.

Really happy to see my MIDDLE GRADE HORROR list growing with @saskwriter and @Lora013's debuts. I'm always looking for horror across the board from MG to YA to Adult, though not of the gross-out variety, but do give me eerie, tension-filled, scary with heart! #MSWL #MG #horror
