Frequently Asked Questions


So You're just one person?

Yup, it’ s just me.

What stuff do you like?

I love YA and new adult fantasy books! Favorite authors include Tamora Pierce, Terry Pratchett, V.E. Schwab, Leigh Bardugo, Traci Chee, Sabaa Tahir, Katherine Arden, Jay Kristoff, Heidi Heilig, Garth Nix, and Naomi Novik. 

In non-fantasy, I'm a fan of Angie Thomas, Celeste Ng, Eva Ibbotson, and Patrick Ness.

Yes! I currently offer an honorarium of $5 for accepted pieces, although I hope to be able to pay more in the future.

Do you accept reprints?

We accept reprints from defunct journals, mags, and presses, and we accept pieces that authors have chosen to rehome due to conflicts of values.
