@amachinist @louisethebaker I'm taking notes 📝 anything in particular you really want in your inbox?#mswl

Check out my verbose #mswl tags. There is much I'd love to read. I want "the feeling"! @CaitlinLaRue @louisethebaker

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Jan 25

So all of you aspiring authors, I very much hope to have that @louisethebaker fall-in-love feeling this winter. #mswl #ilovemyjob #pubtip

How about some literary-creepy like Jennifer McMahon? Or amazingly scoped fantasy like Six of Crows? Crime in the Don Winslow style? #mswl
