Dawn Frederick is willing to look at:
Nonfiction — It needs to be smart, with noticeable platform, and commercial. I enjoy a wide range of topics. Generally the quirkier the idea, the better. I love current affairs, oddball histories, animals, extreme sports, and more. I’m less likely to consider a Memoir, unless it’s a story that truly lines up to my interests and will fill a hole on bookshelves.
Mystery/Thriller - Less mainstream, more quirk. I absolutely enjoyed MEXICAN GOTHIC by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and THE SUN DOWN MOTEL by Simone St. James.
History – Books that will engage commercial readers. (I listen to a LOT of MPR and NPR, most of the shows and podcasts).
Humor – I love a good laugh (I represented the CHOOSE YOUR OWN MISERY series by Jilly Gagnon and Michael MacDonald).
Pop Culture – I’m a nerd to the core, if it’s a fun and offbeat topic, there’s a good chance I’ll be interested.
Social Issues/Current Affairs—Women’s Studies, Diverse Narratives, LGTB Studies, Social Sciences, and more.
Young Adult – Fiction.
Middle Grade – Fiction, Nonfiction.
