No more "aestheticization of idleness"; what we need are more novels about work: https://t.co/6tD1mpzzos https://t.co/E0IIqb0YvL

#MSWL I am dying for women's novels about work https://t.co/w0922wdeZo

Nearly forgot to plug @WritersDigest conference—I'll be taking pitches all day tomorrow at #WDC17 ! Can't wait to hear about your projects 🤓

@WritersDigest (See my pinned tweet for my #mswl if you're wondering whether you should pitch to me at #WDC17 )

Did not know when I wrote this wishlist it'd be going on the wall behind me but hey it's a great version of my… https://t.co/0c1LeFxzyj

Important update from mom https://t.co/NkW4RA61t7

#MSWL : high-stakes, well-paced stories like this thread https://t.co/xvd5KSKX9C

#mswl more own voices in all categories, but especially suspense!

Sharon Pelletier @sharongracepjs · Feb 8

#mswl expertly reported narrative nonfiction that you can't put down like EVICTED, BRAIN ON FIRE, storyteller history like Eric Larson.

Sharon Pelletier @sharongracepjs · Feb 8

#MSWL book club fiction in the style of J. Courtney Sullivan or Ann Leary that explores a diverse range of family and human experiences

Sharon Pelletier @sharongracepjs · Oct 13 2016

#MSWL : An alternative history of the last 100 years in which men are not allowed to vote or hold office.

Sharon Pelletier @sharongracepjs · Sep 13 2016

#MSWL vacation fiction that's fun but with depth and emotional honesty like ENCHANTED AUGUST or A WINDOW OPENS.

Sharon Pelletier @sharongracepjs · Sep 13 2016

#MSWL thoughtful, rich book club fiction that's moving but not sentimental--recently I've loved THE CHILDREN and SIRUCUSA.

Sharon Pelletier @sharongracepjs · Sep 13 2016

#MSWL YA suspense--would love to see more edgy, twisty stories like MAESTRA or GONE GIRL in YA.

Sharon Pelletier @sharongracepjs · Sep 13 2016

One more #MSWL : compulsive narrative nonfiction like BRAIN ON FIRE and FIVE DAYS AT MEMORIAL. Would love to work with journalists!

Also very much still this. #MSWL https://t.co/KrglMmnAX0

Sharon Pelletier @sharongracepjs · Sep 13 2016

#MSWL friendships gone bad, twisted colleagues, dark sisters... I want unpleasantness that brings suspense as it slowly turns more sinister

STILL THIS. Especially the sisters. Or maybe in the workplace! #MSWL https://t.co/EmryRcPiCK

Keep the great women's fiction coming: I love thoughtful upmarket AND fun commercial, but I'd love diversity / #ownvoices in the genre #MSWL

SAME HERE! Query us both and we'll arm-wrestle for it ;) #mswl https://t.co/G1IyBSL8zY

Hope it goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway. Eager for diverse voices (authors and protags) in all the #MSWL ideas I'm mentioning!

Sharon Pelletier @sharongracepjs · Jun 30 2016

(NOTHING is as fraught w/ disorder, emotion, magical thinking as a long-running homeschool group! I can say that - was in one K-12! #MSWL )

Sharon Pelletier @sharongracepjs · Jun 30 2016

#MSWL : Closed community tensions/bonds like boarding school, summer camp, island, cult; would love to see you do the same for homeschool!

Sharon Pelletier @sharongracepjs · Jun 30 2016

#MSWL : I'd also <3 vibrant historical fiction like THE LIGHT BETWEEN THE OCEANS or Beatriz Williams (but no WW2 please! I have WW2 fatigue)

Sharon Pelletier @sharongracepjs · Jun 30 2016

#MSWL : FRESH suspense! Enough alcoholic embittered cops, ex-cops,lawyers or ex-lawyers. Bring me eerie normalcy, smiles pasted over poison.

#MSWL friendships gone bad, twisted colleagues, dark sisters... I want unpleasantness that brings suspense as it slowly turns more sinister
