I'm currently being very selective in the #middlegrade category, but here I'd happily take a look at #horror, #mysteries, stories with quirky characters a la client @merrill_wyatt 's Sloane and Amelia in forthcoming TANGLED UP IN LUCK. Also, I love humor in middle grade -

For #YA, I'd love to see more psychological #thrillers, #mysteries, #light atmospheric horror. Give me a YA Girl, Interrupted, please. I'd also love to see more #BIPOC and #queer stories that lead with joy here - #romance, #romcoms.

I also LOVE horror in general! Horror with social commentary & twists on common tropes, like EAT YOUR HEART OUT & WHAT WE HARVEST. Atmospheric--all the dark, creepy vibes (strange small towns & dark forests never get old for me!). Beautiful literary writing is always a plus.

MG: I'm VERY open here, from contemporary to any genre you could think of, and the whole range from lower MG to upper! From light, funny, and whimsical, to darker and more serious. I'd also love an MG mystery or horror!

The top three things I'd love to see more of in my query inbox, in no particular order 📚 #MSWL

1. Romance of any subgenre, especially if it's queer or polyamorous
2. Contemporary fantasy with unique magic systems and lore
3. Gothic horror, particularly from marginalized voices

For horror (MG and Adult only), think psychological or creature, not gore. I don't like shock for shock sake, and I want characters I can care about. If they die, make me FEEL it

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

(5/9) Horror: Haunted houses, curses, ghosts, murder mysteries, send them my way! I want to be scared. I want to be “I don’t want to turn the lights off” scared. I’m okay with some violence but I don’t enjoy gory stories. I’m more interested in suspense, tension, and dread.
