I'm a major sucker for a distinctive voice from the get-go. Voice, for me, breathes life into the story and will keep me hungry for more. Excited to see your entries.
Karly has a deep love for characters with a strong voice and seeks out stories she can get lost in. Diversity in genre fiction is a major bonus. She specializes in middle grade and young adult genre fiction (fantasy, science fiction, and contemporary).
