Looking For: Own Voices romance in all subgenres

(see blurb below for details)

Mary is currently looking for:

Unique, engaging, risk-taking Own Voices romance in all subgenres. I’m drawn to books that are smart, feminist, and a little revolutionary. I have a weakness for a good man vs. wild narrative and tend to prefer Arctic tundras over boardrooms. I am very open to LGBTQIA+ stories.

Overall, I look for relatable characters, a fully fleshed out world, and a high concept hook that can be sold in two to three sentences. I’ve recently opened my door to Young Adult and Mystery—especially unique cozies—and welcome pitches from all three genres.

About Mary: Mary Altman discovered Romance in the 4th grade when her best friend smuggled a copy of A Knight in Shining Armor to the lunchroom, and she’s been a convert ever since. A giant and unrepentant nerd, Mary spends her free time playing video games and watching Critical Role. She started her post-college life studying law before coming to her senses and settling happily into a decade-long editorial career.
