Okay, I’m open for submissions again! My #mswl currently includes dark academia, horror, big emotion romance, anything high concept - MG and up. I love folklore and myths from around the world. If I love the voice I’ll tag along for anything!
And on the middle grade and YA side, I want funny, I want adventure, I want completely new, never-seen-before characters and settings, I want high-concept romances, lots of friendship and heart, just phenomenal stories and journeys all over🚀🌴
For adult, I would love to see some gorgeous sweeping historical fiction, something to make me laugh out loud, original, high-concept crime/thrillers and cosy crime, and those all-consuming love stories you just have to tell all your friends about💙
U.S. settings OR other settings with at least one American main character. Open to main characters over 40. Would love to see a secondary romance between seniors. Always looking for high concept! tinyurl.com/yn8y9eme
Submission update! My new goal is to respond in 72 hours if it is a pass. I’m currently looking for YA thrillers, high concept contemporary, gothic fiction and paranormal. #mswl
For graphic novels, I want all the high concept contemporary or magical stories with bold, beautiful art. If you can comp your projects to HILDA, THIS WAS OUR PACT, NEW KID, or any Pixar short, please send it to me. #MSWL
I would love to see more high-concept horror, in settings or time periods that feel new. Queer horror (think THE DEAD AND THE DARK or WILDER GIRLS but adult), gothic, and psychological horror are my favorites, but I never know what I'm going to fall in love with!
Here's what I'm looking for in NOVELS:
🌟High-concept YA fantasy and speculative fiction, especially that which uses the conventions of its genre to critique, subvert, or illuminate a truth about our world
▫️Think: Raybearer, Graceling, Dread Nation, The Witch King #MSWL
BROADLY, I'm looking for big bets w/ high-concept commercial hooks, expert plotting & pacing, & the potential to become leads. My taste skews toward upmarket voices & art paired with a strong sales hook that can be summed up in an intriguing line or two. #MSWL
