Interested in: Young adult and middle grade with a speculative flair, some adult romance, and some adult historical.
Maybe: children’s picture books (especially nonfiction or with STEAM elements), nonfiction & memoir with a strong platform, some books for the religious market with a strong platform.
Not interested in: nonfiction that doesn’t have a strong platform, erotica, poetry, new adult (YA crossover is fine).
