We publish romance in all its incarnations (except for erotica). I am specifically drawn to novel-length works in fantasy or sci-fi (romantic elements a must), any of the sub-genres. I would love to see a great steampunk/romance with equal attention paid to the plot as to the romance, something outside of Victorian England would be … Continue reading

I’m looking for ambitious, high-concept YA/MG projects with that irresistible commercial hook, but I will always have a soft spot for a really beautiful literary story. Some projects I’m currently hankering for… A YA romance with a “5 minutes in the future” premise a la MORE HAPPY THAN NOT and that terrible/wonderful movie “Timer.” High … Continue reading

Sense of place is very important to me … Continue reading

Quressa Robinson, St Martin’s

My interests in fiction include historical fiction—particularly untold stories (Apartheid, the genocide in Rwanda or any other non-European historical events (or something similar to the movie Belle which features a black aristocratic woman in 18th Century England), American history (the Harlem Renaissance, Japanese Internment, Chinese immigration to the West Coast/building of the railroad) with a … Continue reading
