Chinese dynasties, older African cultures.

Scifi: space operas! And all the punks, steampunk, cyberpunk, scavengerpunk. Oh and aliens.

A note on romance. I do very much appreciate the submissions I've gotten and am reviewing them carefully, I'm just really picky about romance

Took a nap and up late so wanted to do a #mswl post of things I'm missing in my submissions that I didn't realize I needed lol

Historical: Either 70s/Vietnam War/ACROSS THE UNIVERSE vibes, WW1 and 2, even though it's a tough market, and old Historical, like empires,

Just updated my #MSWL for anyone who wants to take a gander. Still looking for the next fantasy or sci-fi MS that pushes my buttons. I like a little darkness, a harrowing adventure. Also always looking for NF in a bunch of categories.

In book club fiction I'd love to see women who gaslight, girlboss, and gatekeep, historical fiction similar to Taylor Jenkins Reid, and/or female-led retellings.

I'm still on the lookout for great rom-coms: enemies-to-lovers is my *favorite* trope, and I'm also more open to historical romance these days (and historical fiction in general).
