I’m looking for fantasy where romance is the driving force, paired with vivid world-building, unusual magic systems, lush settings, and high-stake adventures. Hooky premise is a must. Think Carissa Broadbent’s TSatWoN – The Hunger Games with vampires? Yes, please!

It's official! I am re-opening to queries March 1st to March 31st, 2023.

I've thought long and hard about the best way to balance my time, and I believe this is it. My inbox has been abundant with high quality work and I think this small window...

I open to queries in March for ONE month! If you are in my inbox right now you are in my Maybe pile and you'll hear from me soon (I hope)

A few #MSWL things I'm on the look out for (a thread)

1. I am still craving a BIPOC vampire book.

I'll take a look at vampires and werewolves, but only with a fresh spin. I was particularly enamoured recently of Catherine Lundoff's take, with menopausal people experiencing a bigger change than expected.

Ok, let’s talk #fantasy. I’m a fan of #romantasy, and am a sucker for a good love-triangle. I tend to be more urban fantasy rather than high-fantasy. Give me faeries, witches, and vampires any day of the week and I will be happy!

#mswl vampires but Dracula rather than Twilight.

Think old, gothic, terrifying, and I'd be happy with three hot vampire women in it as well.

#MSWL grouchy, hot 300 year old immortal vampire who watches other hot 300 year old immortal vampires going to high school and makes horrible fun of them but then has to eat his words, because there's this girl ...

#MSWL list:
1. Vampires or witches (still looking for something different)
2. mystery & humor even if dark
3. Bridgerton w/PR element
4. Surprise me

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!)

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

Here's an #MSWL for you (a thread)

I want a super self indulgent vampire romance. Take me back to the early 2000s. Very Queen of the Damned/Underworld movie vibes. Either prose of graphic novel. I want action and mystery and maybe conspiracy too.

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

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