Reality sucks, so give me escapism. Send me your adult thriller, your YA thriller, or YA romance, or YA sweet friendship story, or or or. I have enough problems right now, I NEED to escape. #MSWL

For YA, I'm more turning to Historical, Contemporary, and Contemporary Romance. Super selective on Fantasy and Paranormal right now, though would still love to see concepts on witches or ghosts (and vamps if unique!)

ENGLISH BOARDING SCHOOLS/ MANOR HOUSES. Portal fantasy in the vein of Stardust or Narnia. Pure fantasy -think LOTR. Anything with a tournament. Lighter crime/mystery set in a small English village. Historical romance that Julian Fellowes would be proud of.

Romance has been such a joy to work on, so I’d love to see more! Especially in the YA space—think: Jenny Han, Sandhya Menon, Jason June & Adiba Jaigirdar ❤️‍🔥

And I will ALWAYS love a little bit of romance in my fantasy 🥰

Will never be sick of it, I swear.

I am open to queries. I repeat: I am open to queries.

What do I want? Who knows. I mean, I do know. Maybe some fae, some smutty fantasy romance, maybe some gay witches, I don’t know let’s also throw in a himbo or two.

I am open to queries.

That is all.

✨ contemporary and well-researched historical queer romance, with pining and butterflies and swoony tension and steaminess and a REALLY strong hook
✨ books that celebrate books, both MG and adult
✨ heists, cons, scams, the more glam the better (no cishet man protags)

My YA romantasy caveat is that the romance must be between humans. I am not the right fit for fae or elves or orcs or mermaids or aliens or robots.

(However, things that were once human are OK: vampires, werewolves, ghosts). #mswl

That is not the case for YA, though! I really, really want romantic fantasy (or "romantasy").

Give me pining and angst and love triangles. The rush of first love. All that good stuff.

I'm also hungry for ROMANCE. Especially contemporary, but also historical.

Again, I'm looking for a really strong hook in this category. Humor is a plus! #MSWL

Grounded fantasy/ genre! I can read books like THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE, ADDIE LARUE, SERPENT & DOVE, or THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY again and again -- anything with a lush setting, a little (or a lot) of romance, and high stakes has my name all over it.

I’m also actively looking for more romance! I’m an absolute fiend for Bridgerton and need something light, witty, and escapist to tide me over until season 2. I’m a huge fan of Talia Hibbert and Emily Henry, and recently loved ONE TO WATCH, THE EX HEX, and THE LOVE HYPOTHESIS.

I REALLY want some COLLEGE-AGE YA! I binged The Sex Lives of College Girls and just adored these characters so much. I want to see diversity, humor, willingness to be messy, friendship, and honesty.

There can be romance, but it doesn't need to be the center of it all.
