"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."

Good time as any that I am looking for YA and Adult fiction, with an emphasis on Contemporary, Romance (but not necessarily rom-coms), and Horror! #mswl I want funny, sharp, and dark wit the most :)

A thread of recent faves in next tweet!

But if we are going contemporary, I need to elevate it. Kit Frick is a forever comp, but if your book comps to TRULY DEVIOUS or FEMAL OF THE SPECIES, I would be here for it. #MSWL #YA

YA/NA #MSWL: I am looking for a horror from a BIPOC writer that can be comp’d to The Hacienda/Mexican Gothic/She Is a Haunting/Bad Witch Burning. And YA contemporary fantasies from BIPOC writers who are also interested in writing MG.

I’d love to see your contemporary #MG story that the world needs to read. If it has a big hook and an urgent voice (like these two books I’ve had the honor of selling) all the better #MSWL

I'm not actively looking for new MG at this time, and I'm being selective with new YA but still very excited about the ones I get excited about. Send me your contemporaries & your very fresh-feeling fantasy in particular!

In middle grade, I’m always hungry for action, adventure, magic, and humor. It can be fantasy or contemporary, or a little bit of both. Give me your fresh takes on magical school settings or just fun friendship stories filled with hijinks. #MSWL

As for children’s, I’m always open to YA in almost all genres, especially fantasy, contemporary, and thriller. I just want strong concepts and smart MCs with engaging voices that pull me along for the ride and make me want to root for them the entire way. #MSWL
