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

We look for a unique voice and a strong protagonist that a reader can relate to whether it be commercial or literary. 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 when the genre demands it.

Profound young adult with a strong male or female protagonist is a must. A thought-provoking read, big writing, an entertaining story line, and a fast pace will get our attention.
