What I’m looking for:
I’m actively acquiring romance titles in all sub-genres and young adult fiction, new adult and speculative fiction in the Gay & Lesbian market.
In the Romance market, I’m particularly interested in contemporary romance stories featuring persons of color, intercultural relationships, small-town contemporary romances and historical romance set outside of the Victorian period. Would love to see a historical romance set in 1920s or during the 1980s in the South, specifically. Am also looking for hard science fiction romance (space opera, interplanetary adventure with a romance story at its core).
In the GLBT market, I am always looking for more erotic romance and sweet romance stories featuring characters who identify as “queer”. I’m also actively seeking nonfiction, speculative fiction, young adult and new adult GLBT titles regardless of a romantic element. (But love a good love story so if it happens to also be a romance, even better!)
