I want single parent stories, whether mom or dad or grandparent, that could cover themes of grief, abandonment, acceptance, or community, but ones where the character arc starts and ends at home. AND, if it's BIPOC, I want them thriving, y'all! #MG #YA #MSWL

Since I'm opening back up for queries tomorrow, I thought I'd share some--not all--of my #MSWL must-haves.

1st up, I want a pair of witchy sisters or witchy friends with ancestral magic wrestling angry restless spirits in a dark setting, like a swampy, marshy woodland.

Oh to get a lighthearted YA contemp romance that is SO FILLED W/ *ROMANTIC SLOW-BURNING TENSION* that it makes ME want to spend the rest of my days in a secluded forest singing to the stars every night of my ~yearning~ until Iโ€™m 1 with the trees

Or something like that.

I will happily keep reading and requesting #fantasy novels, but the odds are really slim that I'll offer representation. It has to really impress me. #MSWL #Submissions 3/3

I've been reading and rejecting submissions the last couple of days. Full MS and synopsis, though I haven't read the whole of one yet. #fantasy is taking a beating. #MSWL #Submissions 1/3

For me, #fantasy has to have an utterly original plot. It cannot in any way feel familiar. And the writing has to be incredible. There are so few markets left for a fantasy novel. It has to grab the reader from page one. #MSWL #Submissions 2/3

#WritingCommunity, I always hear from editors who want sprawling, epic, family sagas. I TOO want one of those, especially one thatโ€™s from a marginalized author subverting the genre a bit and giving me all the feels. If you have this, PLEASE query me! #AmQuerying #MSWL

This is a gorgeous gutting memoir about a womanโ€™s fight for her daughter with cystic fibrosis. Itโ€™s moving and emotional and this is all I want in a memoir! #MSWL
