Romance- Contemporary and suspense

Young Adult- Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Action/Adventure




We love fiction with superb writing with a voice that jumps off the page and a twisted or colorful plot that compels us to keep reading is a must.

We look for a unique voice and a strong protagonist full of attitude. We like dark and intense but we won’t turn away something that’s a little on the lighter side. We enjoy a touch of humor, and we would never turn away something sexy.

Profound young adult with a strong male or female protagonist. A whacky, funny, crazy, or thought-provoking voice will draw attention. We look for entertaining story lines that deal with tough life issues. We look for big writing that remains fast-paced.
