#MSWL (agented only) - YA and adult - Gothic horror or fantasy, would love a fantasy that reads like a fun romp (like This Vicious Grace), vampires, witches, morally gray characters

Here's what I'm looking for in NOVELS:
🌟High-concept YA fantasy and speculative fiction, especially that which uses the conventions of its genre to critique, subvert, or illuminate a truth about our world
▫️Think: Raybearer, Graceling, Dread Nation, The Witch King #MSWL

Since I'm open to queries again:
MUST HAVE: Adult romance only. NO YA. Fantasy or sci-fi sub-genre ONLY.
Prefer: High heat level
#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!)

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.

🧢 Earth-based sci-fi

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!

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

- Something “earthy”—be that a lyrical picture book about environmentalism or a MG hiking action-adventure or a darkly atmospheric YA that takes place in a forest or anything in between
- MG and YA with rural settings
- Witches, boarding schools, sister bonds

Let's have a little fun with the #mswl this time. ;)

I'd love to see a clan of witches who ride motorcycles! Maybe they have their own club...
