New year and a lightly updated #mswl . The gist is I’m always on the lookout for stories that feature joy, that have characters I fall hard for, and settings I can’t let go of.

Future #MSWL & QM update:
I have less than 40 undecided queries/submissions. I plan to reopen mid-late January to a few genres. This info is not on my website or MSWL page yet— it’s just a head’s up and I hope it’s helpful!

✨ ADULT FICTION✨
• contemporary romance - think Emily Henry but low spice or Melissa Ferguson
• upmarket / book club
• cozy mysteries

✨ NONFICTION✨
- same as what’s on website -

✨ KIDLIT ✨
• PB/MG/YA - classic-style with a literary bent. Secret Garden. Bridge to Terabithia. Winnie-the-Pooh.
• PB - humorous character-driven series

‼️Not looking for SEL or rhyme.‼️

Grounded speculative fiction and/or contemporary or historical fantasy, esp. if on the darker side. Maybe even incorporating horror or thriller. If you’re comping NINTH HOUSE, we want to read it!

We’re probably NOT a fit for romantasy, epic fantasy, or hard scifi. 2/4

Contemporary #YA with a literary voice about ordinary teens dealing with life, family, relationships, friendships falling apart, sexuality, mental health, or recovery. A blend of genre and literary would be best of all.
