Deidre Knight
I’m not seeing enough finance/investing/business books. I’m very keen to find nonfiction business/investing focused on digital culture and investment opportunities, especially aimed at millennials. I'd also like a book exploring the impacts of a cashless society, not just an exploration of crypto.

Elaine

Elaine Spencer

I would love to see more historical women’s fiction. I’m also keen to find some great new lifestyle nonfiction and true crime narratives. 



LucienneDiver

Lucienne Diver
I would love to see more diverse stories across genres, where the writer is not jumping on a bandwagon, but is truly connected to the story they have to tell. I want stories that invest readers and take them for a deep dive into something fully realized, visceral, and so real that we experience it alongside the protagonist(s). In short, I’d love to find more work that’s truly transformative.

I’m not seeing enough cozy mysteries with a unique premise. I’m looking for something fun and lighter in tone with an interesting protagonist.

I'd love m
ore novels set in unique locations by authors who grew up in those areas. This especially applies to Asia and Africa.
