I would love to see this in any of the above age categories, especially if it is fantasy, sci fi or horror. I love manga art styles too! I'd also be open to retellings here esp set in modern day! 10/?

For YA specifically, I'd love to see retellings! 5/?

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/?

#mswl instead of taking down the evil king, give me a linguistic fantasy where the plot is recovering the indigenous magic of a dead language that colonial powers tried to erase

Adult:
- genre bending & blending across the board!
- fantasy and horror in the same vein as YA: gripping, dark, cerebral, exciting
- near future sci-fi with alternate/parallel realities, androids, and science that feels real
- queer romance with commercial hooks!

I’m picky with fantasy, and tend to go more for light fantasy (think The Raven Cycle. Buffy, or Ninth House). High fantasy needs to be accessible and character driven (a la Sarah J Maas).
