Submission Interests

If you haven’t yet noticed, I’m a massive bookworm and self-proclaimed bibliophile (yes, that sounds sketchy, but I swear it’s not!). I read just about everything under the sun on my free time, but there are some genres that I just keep coming back to time and time again. These genres are ones that I could read any day. My general submission interests are like that. Below is a general list of what I’m always happy to read any day rain or shine! Please keep an eye out for future blog posts going even more in-depth on what I would like to see more of.
