Sense of place is very important to me … Continue reading

I am looking for fun and flirty novellas themed around holidays: Prom, Christmas, Valentines Day, etc. I am still interested in post-apocalyptic but it has to be with really strong character work and a unique twist. I am also looking for sweet or steamy NA, diversity in fresh Urban Fantasy, and hooky contemporary YA, and … Continue reading

We absolutely need diverse books! My YA and Middle Grade wish … Continue reading
