In fiction Lydia is looking for timely plots inspired by the headlines, effortless magical realism, unreliable narrators, and mysteries/psychological thrillers set in small communities (no CIA/FBI/MI5, please). She is always on the hunt for intriguing female voices and characters. In YA and MG she is looking for strong hooks and modern themes. In nonfiction, Lydia is looking for books that are both inspirational and modern in the areas of self-improvement, lifestyle, relationships and business. She is particularly interested in feminism and women’s issues. She is also looking for unique blogs, Tumblrs and Instagram profiles to transform into gift books.
