I love nonfiction but have very little of it on my list! Let's fix that, eh? I'm looking for high concept projects with a fun, commercial bent supported by your fantastic platform. Teach me something—hobbies, cooking, gardening. I want an adventure! #MSWL

Romance—way more of it! Rom-Coms so funny that make me snort out my coffee, historicals with so much tension I want to pull my hair out, adventure/caper romance that takes me on a nailbiting ride or presents me with a mystery to solve. #MSWL

--A Rom-Com+. A great romance with high quality writing and a meaningful B-plot, like Joya Goffney's EXCUSE ME WHILE I UGLY CRY. (or the romance could be the B plot)
--Sweeping, cinematic adventures with a fun romance

-- Action-packed adventure works with series potential
-- A younger school-based story, think Andrew Clements' work
--A story dealing with first crushes and heart breaks
--Stories featuring good kids making bad choices and taking accountability for their actions

⭐️Middle grade humor with a big heart—I’d particularly like to explore careers outside of policing that nonetheless lend themselves to multiple adventures over the course of a series

*Own-voices* rep of characters with marginalized and intersectional identities in stories of adventure, romance, friendship, joy, and personal growth. Especially but not exclusively: disability/neurodivergence; queer/LGBTQ+; all BIPIC but esp Black American, Indigenous & Latinx

Bring me strong character relationships and lush world-building. I want adventure and multi-level plots and tension that keeps me on the edge of my seat. Leave me wishing I was still wrapped up in the pages when I’m finished! #MSWL

My top 2 Adult Romance #MSWL wishes would be:
 
1. Adventure romance like The Mummy or Romancing the Stone—super steamy & fun, w/ a hint of suspense or the supernatural
 
2. Contemporary romance series set in a big city w/ a small town vibe—think Friends meets Virgin River

Is “send me your book that reads like fanfiction written about your queer dnd party’s adventures” too specific of an #MSWL?

I am probably going to open back up to queries before the New Year but I am going to narrow the genres I'm looking for this time. So please consider this my #mswl list (which I will update).

I will be opening to Action & Adventures.

Books set in extreme environments.

MG:
funny, heartfelt action-adventure featuring queer, BIPOC, marginalized voices, ideally with some magic or fantastical elements

And also, contemporary MG that’s full of adventure, humour and heart. There can be fantasy elements but I tend to love real(ish) world settings.

#MSWL I would love a story about viruses (as long as it's not coronavirus- I need some escapism).

I would also love a book based around a volcanic eruption or another natural disaster. But with the focus on disaster management and the action/adventure side of things.
