I’d love to see more romance submissions. I like all subgenres of romance except YA and religious/inspirational. I’m still looking for a time travel romance with a cool, fresh time travel catalyst. I’m also looking for more mysteries. I love cozies and amateur sleuths, especially. I want to see some new, different angle on mystery. … Continue reading

I am looking for fantasy and science fiction with wonderful, distinct characters and a story I can’t put down. I’d love something with a distinct voice and a high concept, something that can attract mainstream readers as well as genre readers (like THE MARTIAN or GAME OF THRONES).

I’m looking for YA and middle-grade fiction in a variety of genres, including fantasy, science fiction, contemporary, historical, and everything in between.

And there’s a special place in my heart for all things … Continue reading

I’m always looking for great projects in the genres I represent: primarily science fiction, fantasy, and young adult, with a few select projects in other genres of commercial fiction and nonfiction.

​​I love books that are character-focused ​, but still have strong narrative arcs and plot development. Whether it’s adult or YA – give me your damaged, your lost, your strong-willed, and your resilient! Passive and/or two-dimensional characters need not apply. I want ​characters in control of their own story, even if they aren’t in control … Continue reading
