I'm still closed until about April. BUT...I'll reopen for about 1 week only & will give advance notice here. I'll be looking for ONLY HISTORICAL ROMANCE (Regency, preferred) & YA Mystery/Thriller. Strong desire for BIPOC & LGBTQ authors/stories. So get those queries ready!

In YA, Dark Academia with a haunting setting: creepy tunnels, secret societies, and characters with questionable motives/abilities 🏰

Rom Com's 💕 Slow burning romances. Bonus points if it's with an out of school setting

Fantasy 🪄 New spin on magic world and/or powers

I'm not actively looking for new MG at this time, and I'm being selective with new YA but still very excited about the ones I get excited about. Send me your contemporaries & your very fresh-feeling fantasy in particular!

As for children’s, I’m always open to YA in almost all genres, especially fantasy, contemporary, and thriller. I just want strong concepts and smart MCs with engaging voices that pull me along for the ride and make me want to root for them the entire way. #MSWL

I’d love to see more horror in my inbox. It can be adult (or YA). Not slash and hack bloody horror, but the kind that builds psychological tension in a smart and surprising way. #MSWL

I love YA that in its surface is about monsters or magic but is actually about family or community or growing up #mswl

#PBPitch & #MSWL on the same day makes me wish I could nestle here on Twitter and do nothing else!

I’m updating my MSWL page for when I reopen, but my biggest change is that I’m dropping adult fiction.

Happy #MSWL Day! I’d love to see…

Generally fic that gets a little weird and makes me feel things (see Lisa Taddeo’s ANIMAL, Jessamine Chan’s THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD MOTHERS)

A YA crossover witchy or obsessive girlhood friendship

An unusual & chaotic contemp workplace romance

It's #mswl day and as a forever-shojo-manga-lover, all I can think about is how much I want to work on more YA romance/drama. If you have graphic novel pitches that fall into that genre, send them my way!
