Adult

Romance, romance, romance! I adore swoony romances, chaotic protagonists, and conversational and/or laugh-out-loud voice. I also love if there's a sprinkling of spec fic (a la THE DEAD ROMANTICS).

I'm always here for a good, bonkers romcom as well, the wackier the better.

The broadest strokes are that I'm looking for Adult romance; YA romcoms, contemporary, and the odd spec fic; and MG contemporary and fantasy. Specifics below.

I’m really hunting for superhero stories in both YA and adult, especially ones that interrogate the hero vs. villain dynamic and deal with the systemic roots of villainy. Romance very welcome!

YA and adult fantasy books that deal with religion, both fictional faiths like SEVEN FACELESS SAINTS and real ones like WHEN THE ANGELS LEFT THE OLD COUNTRY and ANGELS BEFORE MAN.

Really seeking artists as well in the YA and adult SFFH & memoir & contemporary space. I love the elegant look of LAURA DEAN KEEPS BREAKING UP WITH ME as well as the cartoonish realism of TWELFTH GRADE NIGHT.

I’m REALLY looking for mystery/thrillers/suspense in both the YA and adult space, ESPECIALLY from marginalized populations. However, I am not the right fit for law enforcement protagonists or love interests.

My quite specific #MSWL, via film & TV that I love - a thread.

A coming of age story (could be either YA or Adult) that's set in a specific era or place and centred on a particular 'thing' the MC loves or has to overcome - like an 11yo boy in 1980's Durham who, against all odds, wants to be a ballet dancer...

Beautifully written or Upmarket Adult fantasy/SF/horror that would appeal to a book club audience. Think MEXICAN GOTHIC, STATION ELEVEN, or THE STARLESS SEA. #mswl

"I want unique, genre-blending romance novels. I wish I had worked on THE PLUS ONE by Sarah Archer or any of Roselle Lim’s breathtaking romantic contemporary fantasy novels. Give me an adult rom com in space, or with magic."
