I also love paranormal elements like monsters and ghosts. And anything witchy! I love characters fighting their own "inner demonsโ€ too! I'm selectively open to elements like vampires.

Any atmospheric setting--e.g. an eerie seaside town might be cool!

Happy Spooky Season!! I always want spooky books (especially witchy stuff) but I'm really in the mood for vampires a la THE MORGANVILLE VAMPIRES. Definitely also time for a re-read. #MSWL

#MSWL I'm a sucker for the fish out of water trope, especially if that fish is fresh to a new identity (freshly turned vampire, just found out hidden paranormal genes run in the family, etc). Add humor, and I'm all-in!

For fantasy, I'm always ready for some fresh witches or vampires, particularly from marginalized creators. I'm not the best fit for high fantasy or sci fi, but if you've got something you'd comp to GIDEON (the writing, the snark, the queer), I'd love to take a look. #MSWL

Now to specifics! I love ALL THE ROMANCE, w/ queer & BIPOC stories prioritized. Give me all your fave tropes starring queer, BIPOC, & QBIPOC characters, including rom coms, historical (more regency f/f PLEASE), contemporary romance, & paranormal w/ witches and/or vampires. #MSWL
