#MSWL I’d love to see more stories set on or near the ocean, stories with set time frames, high stakes and clear motives! Stories set on other planets would be fun too!

Happy #MSWL day! I’m on the hunt for a rare gem of a historical or upmarket Caribbean story/voice steeped in island culture with an immersive setting.

I am still closed to unsolicited queries for the time being, but I updated my profile to give those at pitch events and those who are thinking of querying me once I reopen an idea of what I'm looking for!

I'm still closed until about April. BUT...I'll reopen for about 1 week only & will give advance notice here. I'll be looking for ONLY HISTORICAL ROMANCE (Regency, preferred) & YA Mystery/Thriller. Strong desire for BIPOC & LGBTQ authors/stories. So get those queries ready!

Overall things & random misc.:

- Any and all BIPOC
- Anything Tarot-related
- Unique structures like REPLICA or stories told in fragments
- What if the main character loses or doesn't get the happily ever after?
- Messy relationships, regretful choices, & life or death decisions

In MG, still looking for spooky with a series of competitions or games 🧩

Think "Ordinary character in extraordinary circumstances".

Also, tear-jerking novel-in-verse

In YA, Dark Academia with a haunting setting: creepy tunnels, secret societies, and characters with questionable motives/abilities 🏰

Rom Com's 💕 Slow burning romances. Bonus points if it's with an out of school setting

Fantasy 🪄 New spin on magic world and/or powers

It's #MSWL Day... 📜

In Adult I'm now open to SFF, so I'd love to see lush world building, morally grey MC's & lovable villains 🖤

Time Travel where it compliments a much bigger plot 🪐

I'm still on the look out for a psychological thriller with an unreliable narrator 🎭
