With all the pitch contests happening on Twitter at the moment, I just wanted to do a quick update of what I’m really wanting to see in my submission pile these days. As always, if you write in any of the genres listed on my website, don’t hesitate to query. Outside of the more general list, I’m especially hoping to see:
- Upmarket, yet more commercial, women’s fiction (think Sarah Addison Allen, Liane Moriarty, or Jodi Picoult)
- Literary YA
- Fantasy and science fiction for people like me who aren’t big readers of fantasy and science fiction (think The Night Circus, Ready Player One, The Ocean at the End of the Lane)
- Mysteries and thrillers that can stand alone
- Books about modern-day Jewish people, for any audience
And as always, I have a special place in my heart for body image books, women’s fiction about sisters, domestic thrillers, and anything involving beauty pageants or cheerleading.
