My Manuscript Wish List

At Global Lion, we work of a myriad of different authors, ranging across a multitude of genres and subject matter. Personally, I love having a varied list that doesn't sit in just a few categories. I accept almost all genres, but am leaning towards non-fiction books and fantasy of all kinds at the moment. For non-fiction specifically, you must have a well-developed platform. At the end of the day I want my curiosity sated or to feel that I was thoroughly engaged, no matter what kind of book you've written. I want to feel like I've been on a journey.

I am continually interested in building a diverse array of authors, especially those from typically unheard voices, no matter if you are from a distinct minority group or the LGBTQIA+ community. We are open to all genres, including but not limited to commercial fiction and non-fiction, education, self-help, business, technology, fantasy, science fiction, intriguing studies of interesting subjects, art, and “making of” books on the film and television industry.

I have a special place in my heart for sci-fi and fantasy, but it must have a strong sense of style, prose, and voice.

Fun facts about me:
