Adult

GN - all genres but especially horror, dark fantasy, or LGBTQ+

Novels - romance, contemporary, historical, and MAYBE fantasy. Super picky there. Really want horror like Babadook or Midnight Mass or Haunting of Hill House

YA GN

again, I am dying for more LGBTQ+ and historical; would love contemporary, fantasy, and horror here, too

Think outside the box. For YA, it needs to be something that totally immerses me in the characters or the world or the emotions

For graphic novels both MG and YA, give me your messy, flawed, embarrassing, relatable coming-of-age. Think Roller Girl, Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me, Invisible Emmie, El Deafo, Stargazing, Check Please.

Aside from graphic novels, I am still in pursuit of a magical-yet-quiet mermaid novel, so my inbox is a safe cove to any mermaids that would like to swim in. ✨🧜🏼‍♀️

Graphic “Novel” #MSWL

🍂 realistic teen stories
🍂 graphic memoir
🍂 graphic nonfiction
🍂 psychological horror

Note: I’m currently only looking for projects created by author/illustrators (one creator both writing and illustrating the book).
