Heyyyy, #mswl day! I'll share just a few things I'd love to see right now:

Replying to @patricianels

Atmospheric YA with a vivid, specific sense of place, either contemp (a la AMERICAN GIRLS) or contemp fantasy (a la THE RAVEN BOYS) #mswl

Great thread+co-signed always. I want to see stories abt queer chars where the conflict doesn't begin & end w/ homophobia & bullying. #mswl

#mswl Contemporary romance set in cities besides NY or LA. What about Portland, Seattle, Austin, DC?

Patricia Nelson @patricianels · 30 Jun 2016

#mswl Contemporary or historical romance where the heroine has an unusual job. Send me your female race car drivers, codebreakers, etc.

#mswl Intricately plotted, page turning contemp women's fic w/ a unique storyline/hook + the suspense of Moriarty or the insight of Wolitzer
