In adult romance, my big super-specific ask is for celebrity-centric fiction in the vein of THE VIEW IS EXHAUSTING, which I *loved*, and something like Starstruck on HBO Max/BBC.

I will be reopening to queries on the 15th March.

I am having to make a few changes (partly for my workload and partly to make sure I am balancing my list).

The delay also gives me time to finish my remaining fulls before then.

1. I will open for a month only. (By doing it in controlled bursts I can make sure it doesn't overwhelm me).

2. Genres. I will be only opening to a few genres:

Action & Adventure (adult)

Thriller/ mystery: Adult and YA.

Fantasy YA.

Fantasy Romance Adult and YA.

Things I love in YA romances: queer love; sex-positivity; steaminess & tension; opposites attract (💜 stoic softies at heart); complex characters; discovering first love & lust; enemies or rivals to lovers; attraction (or battle) of minds; funny romantasy; dark gothic (2/)

I’d love to find a genre-bending romance in 2023. Think Ash Poston or Casey McQuiston. #MSWL

I think a story with a masculine presenting/masculine of center main female character could be really fun! YA or otherwise (a romance could also be interesting!) 🤔 #MSWL

Romance & cozy mysteries centering BIPOC &/or queer casts,
embracing queer identity late in life,
action-adventures that comp to The Lost City,
sunshine-grumpy trope (or grumpy-grumpy, anything w/ a snarky, lovably cranky protag who might be a cinnamon roll underneath it all)
