While what I’m looking for isn’t that different from month to month or year to year. (I’m just looking for great storytelling!) Here is a detailed list of my interests for the start of this year. In no particular order:
Women’s fiction – contemporary, up-market, or historical (Example: The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls, The Engagements, Beautiful Day)
Upmarket non fiction – humor, health, wellness, cookbook (Example: Niche cookbooks or new approaches to our outlook on health)
Original Memoir – ‘drastically altered your life’ stories. Did you cut up your credit cards and move to upstate new york to live simpler? Did you decide to live your life in 5 pieces of clothing for a whole year? Looking for super original ‘drastically changed your life’ type stories. (Example: Out Of The Woods)
Pop Science/Pop Psychology – how can you teach us about ourselves in a way we haven’t looked at yet? (Example: Power of Habit)
Young Adult and New Adult – contemporary, historical, light fantasy (emphasis on light), sci-fi, thriller, or mystery (Example: How to Love)
General fiction – literary thriller or mystery, stand alone (Example: Night Film)
Query me at query (at) psliterary.com. Please put your title in the subject heading and address it to me. When in doubt: send me anything. I’m open to all great reads.
