Delving more into my nonfiction #MSWL, I'd love really sharp, intelligent pop culture. Contemporary cultural takes, too, w/ humor, great voice. Looking for some fun new projects to go out with early 2018.

I have one #MSWL wishlist--bring me your nonfiction.

Pop culture
narrative
humor
cooking/food
diet
health
self-help
investment and business
memoir

Lest anyone misunderstand. I don't enjoy hard and bad things happening to people. Yet if they do, I celebrate those tales of survival #MSWL

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 22 Mar 2017

As a #mswl note, I'm a big fan of Jon Krakauer and also of survival stories. People who claw their way out of extreme situations. #memoir

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 13 Mar 2017

Strong memoir is top of my #MSWL right now.

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 13 Mar 2017

See previous tweet for #MSWL re: southern fiction. Also eager for commercial-lit fiction. Upmarket, high concept with elegant voice.

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 13 Mar 2017

I'm hungry to find more strong nonfiction--memoir, narrative, personal development, business, music/pop culture. #MSWL #pubtip #amwriting

#MSWL I'm looking for compulsive #WF and commercial fic with atmospheric sense of place. Where the setting IS a character on page.

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL Two of my favorite romance tropes are enemies to lovers and beauty and the beast. I love it in historical, contemp, LGBT, anything

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL also contemporary romance/wf with strong voice like THE HATING GAME.

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL Great southern commerical fiction: think Pat Conroy, Mary Kay Andrews, Anne River Siddons. Family sagas, nostalgia, anything southern

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 8 Feb 2017

It's #MSWL so a few of my desperate "wants" out. #WF of all stripes. Weepy like ME BEFORE YOU or juicy like Judy Blume SUMMER SISTERS

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 30 Jun 2016

My #mswl includes LGBT fiction and romance. Women's fiction. Romantic suspense. Big historical fiction. I love enemies to lovers stories btw

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 11 Feb 2016

I would love to find a Gilded Age novel. #MSWL

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 11 Feb 2016

I would love to find historical fiction about ancient Sparta, Ancient Greece or Romo. #mswl
