Romance: although this is not my main jam, I do love romance with time travel, soulmates, past lives, reincarnation, second-chances, etc. Light spice. Romcoms are also great!

New year and a lightly updated #mswl . The gist is I’m always on the lookout for stories that feature joy, that have characters I fall hard for, and settings I can’t let go of.

Romantasy is a bit of a new space, but I want stories that are steeped in folklore and mythology.
I’d like to see magical academies (Think THE MAGICIANS or FOURTH WING), pirates, intense and lush world building, and romance with high stakes.

I'm on the look out for new authors so in case it's useful on my wish list currently is... a complicated YA romance story in an unconventional setting, a YA Tomorrow, Tomorrow, Tomorrow or Americanah. I'd love to see more from Irish writers particularly Northern Irish! 1/3

Future #MSWL & QM update:
I have less than 40 undecided queries/submissions. I plan to reopen mid-late January to a few genres. This info is not on my website or MSWL page yet— it’s just a head’s up and I hope it’s helpful!

✨ ADULT FICTION✨
• contemporary romance - think Emily Henry but low spice or Melissa Ferguson
• upmarket / book club
• cozy mysteries

✨ NONFICTION✨
- same as what’s on website -

✨ KIDLIT ✨
• PB/MG/YA - classic-style with a literary bent. Secret Garden. Bridge to Terabithia. Winnie-the-Pooh.
• PB - humorous character-driven series

‼️Not looking for SEL or rhyme.‼️
