And might as well note when I reopen I'll also be looking for fun, bonkers, glitzy, exciting New Adult contemporary & rom-com w/out speculative elements too!

I'd love to see some really unexpected, out-of-the-box stuff! Nice mashups of the weird and the fun with romance. #MSWL

And I'm also #MSWL looking for other New Adult settings that can have speculative elements thrown in: NA spy stories w/speculative, NA vacation stories with the same, NA movie set stories w/speculative.

Make it cozy, rompy, bonkers, 🔥unexpected🔥, glitzy!! I'm hungry for this.

#MSWL Something I'll be looking for when I reopen are ✨cozy New Adult fantasies✨ that blend fun, speculative elements, & romance w/spice.

I'll be looking for lots of variations including genre mixing, romcoms at magical colleges, contemporaries w/protagonists who have magic...

And for folks wondering what I mean when I say I want "New Adult", I'm specifically looking for projects with a YA-ish tone, protagonists aged ≈20-23, & room for spice. These are your upper college aged protagonists & new grads experiencing adulthood for the first time! #MSWL

Behold! Here's my highly attractive handwriting illustrating the ✨new categories✨ I'll be open to when I reopen to queries!

I'll soon also be looking for New Adult Contemporary, New Adult Thrillers/Mysteries, & New Adult Horror/Horrormance (not too gruesome though!) #MSWL

#MSWL In response to the characters-in-college discourse, I'm *definitely* looking for projects w/characters in college (trade school, etc.)!

Give me college romance, college adventure, college heists, fantasy colleges, colleges in space!! Looking for both upper YA & New Adult!

in terms of GENRES and NARRATIVES, I love:

- dark academia
- horror
- gothic, esp. regional gothic
- character-led literary fiction
- historical + alternate history, particularly 19th and 20th century and particularly focused on international, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA+ stories

#MSWL

-More illustrators or author/illustrators, especially marginalized
-Poetic, lyrical PBs (but not rhyme) with lots of layers and heart
-Creepy, spooky ghost stories (Adult/New Adult)
-Gorgeous prose but highly commercial concepts across the board

#MSWL I’m also always on the look out for:
✨genre mixing projects!
✨gap area projects!

These are books that do fun things w/genre boundaries and/or hit "gap" areas of the market: voice-y lower MG, adventurous (or romantic) upper MG/lower YA, upper YA & New Adult.

#MSWL I’d love to see some YA, NA, or Adult projects set on the set of a non-U.S. TV show/movie!

Probably not reality show based (unless the show has a an all BIPOC cast) so more that the set is just the setting w/the heart of the story elsewhere.

I am ONLY looking for YA/New Adult/Adult stories in romance, rom-coms, romantasy, upmarket/book club fiction, and women's fiction. OK to cross into the magical side of speculative (time travel, time slip, parallel universe stories a la THE SEVEN YEAR SLIP by Ashley Poston)

#MSWL Would love some nouveau riche casts in material too! Probably most interested in international settings for Adult work, though happy to see U.S. settings too especially in YA.

MG, YA, NA/Adult welcome. Genre mixing or SFF w/same vibes welcome! Would love BIPOC casts!
