Here's a fun idea, #MSWL - a modern YA take on the 1999 movie, Jawbreaker, featuring a big cast of characters, with unique & complicated backstories. Something happens by accident, what will they do?

Happy Friday! Eager for more adult queries - looking for contemporary, smart #womensfiction (maybe to make me cry tears of joy?!), and more psychological suspense with in-depth character dynamics within an intimate setting. #MSWL #querytip

#MSWL: Voicey characters, flawed characters, anything dealing with mental health issues, coming-of-age, epic love stories, psychological and domestic suspense.

#MSWL Characters who are flawed, and know it, and are aware of it. They own it.

#MSWL Powerful writing with an obvious hook that keep me invested to the last page.

YA + WF that present a hook in the first couple of pages. Pacey delivery. Strong voices. And conflict that is deep and emotional. #MSWL
