This week we will be introducing each member from our Acquisitions team. Please give a round of applause for James Wymore!
I like all types of speculative fiction; including urban, epic, and literary angles on sci-fi, fantasy, and all the punks.
I like YA and Adult books that expand minds, preferably to the point of blowing them.
Horror, thrillers, and paranormal can be great, too. (Note exceptions below.)
A lot of agents and editors SAY they want experimental or different work, but I mean it. As long as it is showing (not telling) and the story is compelling– the stranger the better!
I enjoy positive religious themes if they don’t overpower the book. Super heroes and secret societies are in. Regurgitated D&D games are out. I do not like romance, erotica, excessive profanity, satanism, anti-religious themes, anarchy, pointless gore, or anything which would be described by reasonable people as gratuitous.
The only time the word “graphic” should come up is if it’s a graphic novel, and then I’ll like it.
