Hello #amquerying authors! I’ve just updated my #MSWL as I am now also open to ADULT Fantasy and Science Fiction 🎉 You can find a quick MSWL recap in the thread below:

In literary, I’m looking for things with beautiful but accessible writing, with strong characters and concept. I’ve loved Tomorrow x3, Tom Lake, and How High We Go In The Dark. I would also love to see something akin to the film Past Lives.

In YA, I’m looking for things at the upper end of the spectrum, and in the crossover space. I want YA with lyrical prose, heartfelt stories, and that take the feelings of young people seriously. I love I’ll Give You the Sun, All My Rage, We Are Okay, and Everything Sad is Untrue.

I’m picky with fantasy, and tend to go more for light fantasy (think The Raven Cycle. Buffy, or Ninth House). High fantasy needs to be accessible and character driven (a la Sarah J Maas).

I love retellings! Give me your Lizzie Bennet Diaries, your Ten Things I Hate About You. Really, I’m looking for this tweet in book form:

I’m drawn to family stories, especially sibling dynamics and multigenerational sagas. I also love a quirky story with a specific setting or niche community.

I am a certified EmHen girly! If you can meld swoon-worthy romance, beautiful prose, and, crucially, the exploration of the real (emotional and tangible) issues that young women face like Emily Henry does, I’m all in. I want books that earnestly believe in love the way EmHen’s do

I love a speculative twist and will always be in for a bit of magic. I’m looking for things like Addie Larue, Jane the Virgin, and Extraordinary. I also love a non-horror ghost story, where the ghosts have larger meaning. Give me Hill House and Watch Over Me.

Authors, my official #mswl is forthcoming, but I'm on the hunt for lyrical and joyful commercial and upmarket fiction, and select literary fiction, fantasy, and YA. A few specifics:

Oooh, I forgot to add! I'd really love a book set in the 00s or 90s. Probably a classic romcom, but I'd also be open to general women's fiction that was an exploration of friendships and what it meant to be a young woman at that time. Toxic relationships/terrible fashion etc!

Escapism is a really key aspect right now too. We are all dealing with a world in turmoil and it's pushed me away from reading the super bleak and into the more uplifting/HEA reading. If you have that in book-form, please send it my way! #mswl

Books with really strong settings regardless of genre are a must for me!

Whether its a romcom somewhere gorgeous, a crime novel where the setting is a direct external threat, or just a chance to experience somewhere I've never been before... I love armchair travel! #mswl

I'd love some horror too! I have recently listened to NEVER WHISTLE AT NIGHT and I loved it. I am looking for supernatural elements, creepy folklore and amazing atmospheric settings rather than tons of blood/gore. #mswl

I'm still desperately looking for something like THREE HOURS by Rosamund Lupton, both in sense of themes (issues driven suspense) and execution. I just couldn't put that book down and it left me with all kinds of emotions.

Something like that please! #mswl

I am often sent the more closed door romance novels (which I do love!) but I'd love to see stuff with some higher spice levels 🌶️🌶️🌶️

I still need great plot, pacing and characterisation alongside it (obviously)! I love Emily Henry, Tessa Bailey and Talia Hibbert as some inspo

Happy Monday! I'm updating my submissions wish list...

Now this comes with the usual caveat that I am open to all of the things listed on my agent page, and these are just the things I'm particularly hankering for at the mo...

In my pursuit of a graphic novel for a reluctant middle grade reader I realized that there is a shortage of MG horror graphic novels that are RECENT, so with that in mind when I reopen to queries I want that - preferably with an illustrator already attached. Okay, bye! #MSWL
