James is looking for a range of commercial and literary fiction and non-fiction. In commercial fiction, I’m seeking compact horror and mysteries with big hooks and intricate plotting. I'm drawn to grounded sci-fi and fantasy that features high stakes that touch on contemporary issues. In nonfiction, I’m looking for a vivid look into subcultures and events I might not otherwise have cause to explore. In YA and MG, I’m interested in epic fantasy, grounded sci-fi, and irreverent retellings of fairy tales, classic myths, and historical events. I’m specifically seeking stories written from diverse perspectives and/or draw from underrepresented cultures.
