1. What is on your wish list?

A YA PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER THAT REALLY MAKES YOU QUESTION WHAT YOU’RE READING AND WHOSE POINT OF VIEW YOU’RE GETTING.

2. What are some things you love to see in a query?

THE AUTHOR MAKING AN INFORMED DECISION ABOUT WHO THEY’VE SUBMITTED TO! I.E. THAT THEY’VE DONE THEIR RESEARCH AND ARE SUBMITTING TO YOU BECAUSE THEIR PROJECT TALLIES WITH YOUR TASTE. ALSO A VERY CLEAR AND SHORT SYNOPSIS THAT WHETS THE APPETITE ENOUGH FOR ME TO WANT TO READ THE 10 PAGES, NOT TAKES ME THROUGH THE ENTIRE TRAJECTORY OF THE BOOK.

3. Character, world, or plot?

ALL THREE! WORKING IN CONJUNCTION – AN AMAZING STORY NEEDS TO HAVE A COMBINATION OF ALL OF THESE IN ORDER TO BE WONDERFUL. I WOULDN’T ADVISE FORSAKING ANYONE AT THE EXPENSE OF ANOTHER.
