In fiction I’m open to Adult, YA and MG. I’m looking for edgy and enchanting page-turners written with a light hand. I always enjoy complex female characters, and have a thing for unreliable narrators. I love fiction that explores social issues or is inspired by the headlines, like ROOM by Emma Donahue and THE HATE … Continue reading

I acquire nonfiction titles for our adult list with a Northwest regional focus yet national appeal. The tagline for what we do at Sasquatch is “cool stuff from here” and “here” extends from the Pacific Northwest into Alaska. I’m focusing on practical nonfiction in the categories of home, garden, craft, DIY, style, love and relationships, … Continue reading

I’m looking for literary and commercial fiction, and compelling non-fiction in food, popular culture, science, and current affairs.  Some of my dream projects include historical fiction about feminists, the Roma, and Maxim Lieber, darkly suspenseful stories (both true and made-up) with unreliable narrators, anything about Poland and its history, nonfiction that is creatively critical, and … Continue reading

I’m looking for nonfiction (narrative, prescriptive, and memoir) in almost all areas, especially current events, social sciences, women’s issues, law, business, history, the arts and pop culture, lifestyle, sports, and food, including cookbooks and health/wellness. I love nonfiction that uses a unique, specific story to cast light on and explore a larger issue. More specifically, … Continue reading

Pretty much everything I am looking for could be either for adults or teens, depending on the age of the protagonist and the writing. My taste is similar for all age groups (within appropriate boundaries.) I would love to read something unabashedly girly — fun, light, easy to read, time-sucking fiction. See, e.g. Emily Giffin, … Continue reading
