nltsjnread It doesn't hurt to try! I don't think they necessarily want ONLY fluffy marshmallow fiction, but just less dark. If that makes sense. The worst thing they can say is no, but you've already given yourself an automatic no.

I'd really love to query them, my manuscript ticks so many of their boxes but they don't want anything "dark," only fluffy marshmallow fiction.

Per her twitter, Claire would like queries to be addressed to just Claire, or Mx. Draper, not Miss or Ms.
