Kortney is interested in middle grade, young adult and new adult fiction. She has a special interest in manuscripts that feature characters within the special needs community.
- Middle grade of all types, specifically stories of adventure or survival, written in the vein of Gordon Korman. Mysteries such as The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin, and some fantasy, steampunk, and other science fiction.
- Young adult science fiction or steampunk such as Airborn by Kenneth Oppel and The Finishing School series by Gail Calliger. Science fiction with elements grounded in history is also a plus. She would also like historical fantasy with a setting in either the Middle East or Europe, thrillers with a touch of magical realism, such as Lois Duncan’s books, and some horror.
- New adult of all types, but she would love to see strong contemporary or historical fiction.
