I’m open to LGTBQ, multi-cultural, or interracial storylines in any genre I’m interested in acquiring. Love is love. Please note also that while I will consider historical novels, mysteries, and romances, I’m not a huge fan of anything that’s 19th century America, so I’m highly unlikely to acquire anything related to the Civil War, Westward Expansion, The War of 1812, Spanish American War. There are lovely books set in these time periods, but those books are very rarely, if ever, my jam.

About the Author

Meet Lateia Elam Sandifer

Lateia Elam Sandifer is an award-winning USA Today Bestselling author who writes as Blaire Edens, and has published several novels through both indie and large presses. With degrees in Horticulture and Classics, with an emphasis on Latin, she was never close to being “normal”. Fluent in German, she’s never met a language she didn’t like, a tea blend she didn’t want to try, or an obscure documentary she didn’t want to watch.

As an experienced editor, she’s a sucker for books that change her perspective, introduce authentic and quirky voices, or make her laugh. Clever puns are not required for submission, but are greatly appreciated.

Lateia lives in a tiny town in Western North Carolina near the farm that’s been in her family since 1790. Of mostly Scottish descent, she’s partial to men in kilts, and she cries every time someone plays Amazing Grace on the bagpipes. If she ever goes missing, you can probably find her at the nearest yarn store sourcing materials for her next knitting project, or on the floor of the local bookstore surrounded by stack of must-have paperbacks.
