Middle grade: I’m probably most actively looking for something fairly light with a commercial voice, or a classic-feeling story.

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

I’m really hoping to find an novel set in the French Revolution — or to find a writer who is interested in this period.  I have an idea for a novel that I’d like to share with the right person.  I’m also hungering for a literary mystery series set in Peking between World War I … Continue reading

What do you wish you had in your inbox?: I’m looking for top notch young adult and middle grade fiction, especially books that readers connect with immediately, thanks to either strength of voice or originality of story. I’m happy to review contemporary, thriller, low fantasy, humor, and dark fiction. Something in a Coen Brother’s kind … Continue reading
