  1. Enhancing my possibilities of surviving the zombie apocalypse is my guiding ambition in life. I will definitely be submitting to you. I mean, all that other good stuff is nice, but it's really just the cherry on top ;) You can't write if you've been killed and devoured by the flesh-eating undead.

    1. Being alive IS important to your writing career. Glad we're on the same page ;) Looking forward to reading!

  2. Ummmmmm. I'm totally submitting to you! I got to the bottom of your post and just thought, YES. Even if we don't match up, could we be virtual friends?! What video games do you like to play? I used to work at Game Stop in college. :) I love Assassins Creed (BLACK FLAG) for reasons that will make total sense to you once you see what my novel is about. :)

    1. Yay! I enjoyed Assassin's Creed so I look forward to reading :) I'd say my fave video game series of EVER is Tomb Raider, followed by Fable and the old school Ocarina of Time/Zeldas. And even though they scarred me for life, I really enjoyed the old Resident Evils and all the Silent Hills. I just played them with the lights on. And sometimes with cheats. Maybe.

  4. I'd consider submitting to you; what's the cutoff age for YA and NA? That'll tell us if we're meant for each other.

    1. I would say 18 is probably the highest for YA. But YA is also a theme - MC is often still a dependent and focused on here/now. NA is more independent, focused on future, and working out what it means to be an adult.

  5. You have a soft spot for antiheroes...I'm in, you'll be hearing from me.

  6. You had me at dark chocolate. But you're doing YA and I write adult (anti-hero writers unite!). It sounds like your mentee is a lucky guy/gal.

  7. You could've just used the Kronk gif and I would've been in! I have a YA UF with historical elements, set in 1980's NYC - you are on my list! :)

  8. Hi! Are you open to a story that involves rape? NOT a rape described in detail. You see before and after.

    1. Yes, but I'd be looking hard at the character's emotional arc after the scene. Should affect him/her beyond just the increase in stakes.

  9. I would love to submit to you--would you be interested in a YA contemporary fantasy that's National Treasure with a dash of Now You See Me?

  10. Hi...being English and using British English I'm concerned that you will read my query and think heck that girl can't spell ! Is this a problem for you? So many differences...I have an American friend who's always correcting me- even words like around and round are used differently across the pond

    1. I have an English critique partner so I'm quite familiar with the different spellings and try to err on the side of leaving things alone (I'll always ask if I'm unsure). Wouldn't be a problem at all!

  11. Hi!
    Any interest in a YA contemporary with a superhero (YA contemporary fantasy)? It includes humor, romance, and of course some action. :)
    Thanks in advance!
