Sub Guidelines


Rachel is selectively looking for fresh stories in women's fiction, romance, mystery and YA. She is especially looking for books that elevate marginalized voices and show love in their communities (such as #BlackGirlMagic and #BlackBoyJoy).

She tends to gravitate toward contemporary fiction more than historical, unless the story focuses on underrepresented events or perspectives in history (e.g. The Silence of Bones, The Downstairs Girl, When We Left Cuba).

Rachel is not currently seeking previously self-published works, novellas, short stories, or nonfiction. She is not the best fit for stories centered on Greek gods/myths, bands/rock stars, outer space, paranormal activity, pandemics, sports, pet deaths, domestic abuse, and sexual assault.

Some non-client titles that inspire her list include: All Boys Aren't Blue, American Panda, Ayesha at Last, Black Enough, Hot Dog Girl, I am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, Natalie Tan's Book of Luck and Fortune, and Wicked Fox.
