My main interest is YOUNG ADULT with strong romantic elements, in the genres of fantasy, sci-fi, and contemporary. A high concept plot and strong teen voice are a must. A project that blends genres would also be great, such as sci-fantasy, SF mystery/thriller, contemporary fairytale retelling, or whatever you can think up!
I am also very interested in ADULT contemporary romance and women’s fiction with strong romantic elements. For contemporary romance use of category tropes and quick pacing are a must. For women’s fiction a thematic premise and an engaging voice are a must.
I will consider NEW ADULT romance, any genre, on a case by case basis.
And with ANY of the above, I am always interested in projects with same-sex couples. Always in search of characters that jump off the page, make me love them, hate them, or love to hate them.
A few authors I’ve worked with as of the time of this listing: Shonna Slayton (YA historical fantasy), Alyxandra Harvey (YA paranormal), Sara Wolf (YA contemp), Gaby Triana (YA mystery), Suzanne van Rooyen (NA m/m sci-fi), Susan Meier (contemp romance), Jackie Braun (contemp romance), Coleen Kwan (contemp romance), Jennifer Shirk (contemp romance).
Can’t wait to read your book!
