I am drawn toward books with a commercial hook and gorgeous writing, books that say something new and demand a place on the shelf. Iโ€™m so excited to read what you send me!

Every day of Pride, I'm going to a #MSWL that is just a queer thing. Today, I want everyone to know that Hacks should be a romcom and if you wrote that fanfic ...

Middle grade fantasies that are set in our world (so low/lighter on the fantasy side), or stories with a meta layer to them a la lemony snicket, detective fiction, and STEM

Also for teen/YA - all your thrillers, murder mysteries, horrors. Please send your heists and spies. Ally Carter is an auto-buy, and my new fave is Ravena Guron.

YA romance/romcoms - if I had to pick just one thing, this is definitely the asylum where they raised me. Some faves: Michelle Quach, Ann Liang, Eva desLauriers, Emma Lord, Huntley Fitzpatrick, Emma Mills, Sophie Gonzales, William Hussey, Stephanie Perkins - you get the idea

WRITERS: I will be closing to queries on June 8th-so that I can catch up on submissions and focus on client manuscripts. As a reminder, I'm looking for YA/MG/PB and Adult and Kids NF. Polish and send those queries by 6/8 or hang on to them until later in the summer. Thanks!
