I’m looking for a really good book that is unique and different, but one I can see a market for and feel like I have the contacts to take it into that market. It’s more about the fit of the project than it is about the genre. I don’t work with sci fi or fantasy and don’t work with children’s books but do handle some middle reader and YA.
