1. Moe Ferrara of BookEnds, LLC
Moe is interested in science fiction and fantasy for all age groups (no
picture books). She loves a bit (or a lot!) of romance in her fiction,
so the right contemporary or historical romance will spark her interest.
She's LGBTQ friendly, so send her that male/male erotic romance in your
back pocket! At this time she's not looking for nonfiction, women's
fiction, or cozy mysteries.
