MG

I tend toward upper MG, and love fantasy and contemporary narratives, but voice is the most important element for me in this age category. I want funny/quirky/snarky MG voices, something really strong that hooks you in immediately.

While I love a good contemporary fantasy (whether lighter/funnier or darker/creepier) I am not usually the right person for YA high fantasy. You can still query me with your high fantasy stories, but it's likely it won't be for me as my interests are so limited here.

I am pretty picky with my YA spec fic interests, and it's sort of an "I'll know it when I see it" situation. That being said, I tend toward contemporary fantasy, horror, and/or relatively grounded narratives that feature some kind of speculative twist (i.e.: CEMETERY BOYS).

Here it is! The #MSWL thread!

The broadest strokes are that I'm looking for Adult romance; YA romcoms, contemporary, and the odd spec fic; and MG contemporary and fantasy. Specifics below.

YA and adult fantasy books that deal with religion, both fictional faiths like SEVEN FACELESS SAINTS and real ones like WHEN THE ANGELS LEFT THE OLD COUNTRY and ANGELS BEFORE MAN.

Fantasy romance, especially queer fantasy romance, like A MARVELLOUS LIGHT. Happy to receive both dark and cozy romances!

"I love sci fi and fantasy novels. I read a ton of them. But they have to be accessible. What does that mean? It means that readers who don't traditionally pick up much sci fi & fantasy, can pick up one of these novels and enjoy it."

Agents! I'm in the mood for an epic, can't-live-without-you, every-moment-we're-apart-is-agony, be-still-my-beating-heart romance, ideally in a fantasy world. I want tension, I want tears, I want to ache with longing. #MSWL

Agents of Twitter, please send me your spiciest fantasy romances. I truly cannot emphasise enough that I love romance of ALL kinds, so if you have something and you're thinking 'is this too spicy to send to an SFF editor?' It is not. Please send it to me #MSWL

Pondering my current #mswl. I’d still love to see some high-concept YA romance (if queer then all the better) that addresses the climate crisis… ecological, possibly international, could be a version of our world, could be fantasy?

Beautifully written or Upmarket Adult fantasy/SF/horror that would appeal to a book club audience. Think MEXICAN GOTHIC, STATION ELEVEN, or THE STARLESS SEA. #mswl

"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."

I am in the reading mood for fantasy right now. I want writing like Margaret Owen with the snap crackle and pop of Sarah J. Maas's characters #MSWL #YA
