Stacey is interested in receiving queries for Adult and Young Adult fiction. She is particularly interested in women's fiction, romantic suspense, contemporary romance , pyschological thrillers, diverse stories and contemporary young adult. She loves stories that feature strong independent women where relationships with other women are important. In diverse works she is hoping to find stories that have LGBTQ characters where the focus is on the story and not on the issues related to coming out or the fear of coming out. Other diverse works that she would love to see would be those related to culture and ethnicity. Where thrillers are concerned she is hoping to stick to psychological thrillers and is not currently seeking other types. In romance she is open to all areas and varied heat levels and would love to see some southern romance.
Not interested in: Non-fiction, picture books, self-help, or cookbooks.
