Romance. I am particularly interested in historical, especially Regency; contemporary (or women's fiction). Young Adult and Middle Grade fantasy, sci-fi, or dystopian with strong, well-developed characters. I'd also like to see YA contemporary or historical with elements of romance. I am drawn to intelligent, quirky characters, and would love to see plots featuring time travel, mythology, competitions, or travel.

  1. Jordy is super sweet. Hope she gets some great submissions!

  2. Jordy is lovely, wise and enthusiastic. Her clients are very lucky people! :)

  3. I sent my adult contemporary romance to her. I'm so excited. Whether she likes it or not, I'm glad that she came on her to tell her wishlist and YAtopia let us all know!

    You all rock.

  4. By any chance do you think she'd look at a story about superheroes? I don't know what specific genre that'll fall into.

  5. Arianna: I think it's safe to say if an agent puts sci-fi and fantasy on their wishlist, they'll like superheroes!
