#MSWL While I’ll rep any genre, I am particularly drawn to fantasy, speculative, magical realism, and fabulism. I love stories that marry a fast paced plot with literary writing and strong emotions (who doesn’t, I know, sorry). A great mystery also always gets my attention.

As stated on my #MSWL on the official MSWL website and the Metamorphosis website, as far as fantasy I’m really only looking for magical realism and urban fantasy. I prefer low fantasy and if it’s very high concept it’s probably not for me.

Young Adult/New Adult: I am open to magical realism, contemporary fiction, thriller (+), mystery, and low fantasy. I am especially on the lookout for a sports story (where sports is the center of the story, like the shows Spinning Out, Pitch).

Middle Grade: I am looking for mystery stories! I also welcome magical realism and contemporary. In contemporary, I am especially looking for a story where sports is a big part.

I'm also only considering memoir and sci-fi very selectively. I'm not the best fit for epic/high fantasy (think Game of Thrones) but I do like magical realism, urban fantasy and some paranormal and horror.

Upmarket speculative fiction. Grounded fantasy, magical realism, retellings of fairy/folk tales, horror. The majority of my favourite books of all time live in this genre. #MSWL

- magical realism

I’d LOVE to see MG and YA contemporary graphic novel scripts (magical realism is good too). Author only, author/illustrator, or team—I’ll look at all. #MSWL #WritingCommunity #diversity #inclusive Query me via Query Manager.

A magical #MSWL tweet from @BookEndsJessica!

"I want something whimsical and myth-based, but grounded in the real world. Especially fabulism or magical realism. I recently took on a book that's like an adult CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS, and I LOVE it! I want more."

I’d love to see more speculative adult fiction in my inbox. Magical realism, grounded fantasy, cozy fantasy, rom coms. Think “a little bit of magic and a whole lot of heart” and that’s my cup of tea.✨ #MSWL
