#MSWL - graphic novels! I'm particularly eager for grounded/realistic graphic novels or fantasy with one foot in the real world, but open to all GN genres in MG and YA.

#MSWL - and of course, contemporary YA that is heartfelt and full of big emotions always hits home. Some favorites include I'LL GIVE YOU THE SUN, THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR, and of course client books like THE LAST TRUE POETS OF THE SEA, the upcoming INDIVISIBLE, etc.

#MSWL - I want super ambitious YA stories that feel like they somehow break the paradigm. I'd love to see multi-generational stories, stories told from odd points of view (think A.S. King!) and stories that play with genre. I want to get WEIRD in 2021!

#MSWL - something big, sweeping, ROMANTIC. I love love and I love romantic stories, whether they're romantic comedies or sweeping love stories. I want to see love against the odds stories.

#MSWL - YA or MG paranormal: vampires, werewolves, oh my! Particularly interested in paranormal from underrepresented points of view and stories that bring something new to the genre. Related: contemp fantasy a la LEGENDBORN, a 2020 fav, too.

For YA horror, I can do more on the psychological horror side. Is this real? Does this exist? As always, marginalized voices welcome! #MSWL

I’m looking for YA fantasy that is ownvoices/by marginalized voices! MENA authors, Black authors, queer authors, send me some! I love commercial fiction that’s character driven, with voice that drips off the page, high concept and tightly plotted. I’m an avid fantasy reader #MSWL

I am actively looking for Latinx voices.

For YA, I would adore a fantasy (or all of them), magical realism and romcoms. I like the light and fluffy in contemporary.

For adult, historical romances, romcoms, WF focused on relationships and magical realism. Commercial fic #MSWL
