Within the fantasy genre, I yearn for fairytale fiction in the vein of Stephanie Garber, wholesome quests that bring me back to my first reading of The Hobbit and whimsical stories that feel low stakes in terms of plot, but convey a sense of jeopardy in the emotional stakes ⚔️♥️

I'd LOVE a fantasy sports book with strong found family vibes, especially queer found family. Like a magical FENCE or BLUE LOCK or, truthfully THE FOXHOLE COURT (sans the problematic elements) (2/5)

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

Like it could be a Dark Fantasy or a Speculative Thriller, or an Ensemble Bottle Episode Mystery, or a Heisty Puzzle Solver, or a gloebtrotting Adventurous Romp or a Warm & Fuzzy Rom-Com... but critically... whatever the vibe is I want THE MOST VIBES WE CAN HANDLE.

MG fantasy! Big worlds, high stakes, do-or-die moments and tons of peril. I would love something here that feels incredibly ambitious and cinematic, with a core gang of characters I'd dying to be part of.

Reaaally itching for a Martial Arts fantasy in the vein of Jade City x Ong Bak, but more female forward. Extra points if it blends mythology and anticolonial themes

Your characters don’t have to be Muslim, your story doesn’t have to be Islamic, but the magic has to be limited.

Since I’m opened to queries, I’ll throw out something I’m interested in getting that’s not on my #MSWL : “accessible” fantasy like THE FOURTH WING!

Give me dragons or gryphons or other mythical creatures in a GROUNDED world that DOES NOT need a lot of world building.
