I realized I haven’t updated my #mswl in a while, so here’s what I’m currently on the hunt for:

🗡️ BIPOC romantasy
💜 queer contemporary romance (drown me in tropes!)
🐉 myth retellings with a twist
🇨🇦 Canadian authors
🧭 Dan Brown-esque mystery/thrillers

Mermaids, Take 2 #MSWL . This one is all fun, summer, contemporary vibes, but people who work as professional mermaids. If you watch MERPEOPLE on netflix, I want the fun, summer, YA version #MSWL

I really want to see more YA Fantasy in my inbox. Romantic Fantasy, grounded/contemporary fantasy, paranormal fantasy. Light magic, spooky magic, bizarre magic. Dark, frothy and fun, ALL OF IT. #mswl

July I’d love to see contemporary fiction in any genre or age category! I’ll also take poetry and novel-in-verse.

I'm EXCITED to share I'm opening back up to submissions in June with a narrowed #MSWL . I'm looking for Adult Queer or Neurodiverse (ND) representation (MC or SC) in Contemporary Romance or Contemporary Fiction. I can't wait!#amquerying

I've officially gone through all my queries. So, it's time for a short #MSWL

My focus right now is contemporary ❤️romance❤️
-Rom-coms with fantastic humour (I love sarcasm) and layered characters
-Navigating dating/love/heartbreak as a millennial
-Sports romance!

Here are the main differences in my MSWL from last year:

-In the MG space, I'm only now open to upper MG (protagonists 12+)

-Open more to contemporary fantasy, less to genre fantasy

-Open less to PBs with animal casts

-Narrower parameters on historical and dystopian

*NEW: In both MG & YA, I learned over my first year that I'm almost always a better fit for contemporary fantasy than I am for genre fantasy.

Still happy to consider fantasy if you think I'm a strong fit for other reasons, but this is something I want to be forthright about!

YA and MG contemporary fantasy: My second love! I’m interested in the same topics, and will look foremost for lyrical writing and character focus, with unique but very grounded magic systems. Comp: THE NATURE OF WITCHES by Rachel Griffin.

YA and upper MG contemporary continue to be my first priority! Lyrical prose, novels-in-verse, “dark and gritty,” “issue-driven,” character-driven, voice-y. I want to feature LGBTQIA+ voices, BIPOC voices, disability and chronic illness, mental health and neurodivergence, grief.
