For the romance genre, some of the keywords that pique my interest in a query are: sapphic, #ownvoices, rom-coms, historical, nerdy, fun, fantastical, rivalry, and academia.

If your query contains one or two (or more) of these words, I'd love to read it!

#MSWL #YA: I love RomComs and anything with a ghost-y or #supernatural quality. #LTBTQ+, #OwnVoices and #BIPOC authors are always welcome. I do still like issue-driven YA, but am looking for something super-edgy in this realm.
