Agent "wish list"!

I decided to create a new blog! If you're visiting, thanks and welcome! So, I figure I'll dedicate this first post to my "wish list," or what I would LOVE to see, as well as what I'm really not interested in seeing.

I would LOVE to see: 

  • Romance (any heat level). I am particularly interested in historical, especially Regency. I'd also like to see paranormal and contemporary (or women's fiction). 
  • Sci-fi/fantasy/urban fantasy that focuses more on the characters (development/motivation).  
  • Young Adult or Middle Grade. Contemporary and I'd really be interested in seeing a YA historical or dystopian. I would love for there to be some element of romance in the YA. 
  • I love characters that are intelligent and quirky. I'm also drawn to a deadpan sense of humor. 
  • Stories that have strong, unique plots and subplots. Speaking of plots, I would love to see plots featuring time travel, mythology, or competitions. 

What I really DON'T want to see:

  • Stories featuring post-marriage/divorce/children. 
  • Inspirational.
  • No epic type sci-fi/fantasy.

Below are examples of authors I love: 

J. K. Rowling
Karen Marie Moning
Kresley Cole
Gena Showalter
Teresa Medeiros 
Sabrina Jeffries
J. R. Ward
Suzanne Collins
Cassandra Clare
Larissa Ione
