My Manuscript Wish List®

I represent a wide range of fiction and non-fiction projects: Romance, fantasy, science fiction, pop-culture, science, and more. I am LGBTQ-friendly and am looking for works with diverse characters in a way that is not appropriation.


Currently looking for: Romance/Women’s fiction (paranormal, suspense, small town, contemporary, historical, regency, category and single-title), fantasy, science fiction (military — think STARSHIP TROOPERS), horror (think Lovecraft, Poe, James Wan/Leigh Whannell), and non-fiction (pop culture, true crime by journalists, science by researchers/experts).


Not looking for: Memoirs, thrillers/mysteries/suspense, inspirational.

Fun facts about me:

I have three dogs.

Lane is teaching How to Edit a Bestselling (Romance) Novel and taking ten-minute meetings and critiques with The Manuscript Academy. #MSWLMA
