My client list is filling up, so I will be even more selective this time. My #mswl includes:
- high concept board, picture, and chapter books (new concept easily understood in just a few words)
- YA contemporary like Jenny Han and John Green (commercial but bends a bit literary).

Adult/YA Fantasy:

For both here, I really want cozy fantasy. Low stakes 'comfort' reads are huge especially if it's got something to do with food or music! Contemporary and urban fantasies are also great and I love vamps and werewolves! 4/?

My current #MSWL . I am in particular looking for YA Thrillers, Romance, Boarding School settings, and Graphic Novels. On the Adult side, I'd love to see more Popular Science and Narrative Nonfiction, as well as Romance, and Thrillers...but there is more! 😎

I'd love to see more contemporary romance queries. One Day is a good indication of what I'm after, but I could do without a traumatic ending. I always look for a unique hook and a believable relationship. Did I mention a unique hook? I love a unique hook.🙏 #mswl

YA: I love diabolical characters doing diabolical things, for both right and wrong reasons. Villainous found families, tragedies, queer voices, and dark fantasy are top of my list at the moment. If anyone has written a contemporary fantasy marching band book, PLEASE SEND IT TO ME

• YA Contemporary: relatable, everyday situations teens go through. Heartfelt, underlying messages or overall just a fun and feel-good read. Romance plot or self-discovery/coming-of-age. Would love to see a strong theater rom-com!
