My Manuscript Wish List

I’m always looking for diverse books/ #ownvoices. I’m particularly on the lookout for:

  • Epic fantasy with LGBTQ main characters
  • Gothic romance with a unique twist. I’m a sucker for Jane Eyre, Beauty and the Beast, and the enemies-to-lovers trope.
  • Literary writing paired with magical realism
  • Historical–the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries are my favorites. I would also be interested in something set in the 1920s.
