So let me take the downtime to remind you of my #mswl mood for summer. — fun fiction ala Crazy Rich Asians. I like light for summer
That's it, more women's fiction with girls trips. Or, a domestic suspense featuring women's friendships (maybe a girls trip). #MSWL I also love the idea of a book featuring new and old wives/spouses.
I was helping @jamerrson craft his #MSWL & realized I should post a few of my own. I'd love to see wine-related women's fiction -- set a vineyard, a girls trip, like Sideways, but featuring friendships. A birthday trip? Girls trip?
Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessicaAs a woman I don’t have that privilege. I can’t walk with earbuds. I need to be aware that someone is (seemingly) stalking me. I’m not necessarily safe. I would have moved when the (seeming) stalker sat. Just enough to keep an eye on them.
Then I thought, this is the book I want. A reverse You. A woman obsessively stalking a man who has the privilege of not noticing. A privilege that makes her job very easy. #MSWL
This has been a good week for catching up on submissions. My #MSWL hasn’t changed much—women’s fiction, suspense, upmarket & literary. Also nonfiction (no memoir please). My inbox has room.
James McGowan @jamerrson.@BookEndsJessica and I have been super interested in this "sharenting" craze. We think it would make for so many good books. #MSWL fastcompany.com/90315706/kids-…
Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessicaSome of my favorite examples for books that have inspired me include You are a Badass, Start with Why, The One Thing, Go for No (although slightly odd)...can I get more like this? #MSWL
I desperately want more mindful books in all genres--business, career, job hunting, parenting, etc. Experts need apply. #MSWL Thanks!!!
Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessicaI had a really fun lunch yesterday with a nonfiction business editor and now I'm totally fired up to find more business/career/personal empowerment books especially by AOC & women, but for all readers. #MSWL

Tessa Woodward @TessaofAvonleaThis was such a lovely piece! @CarolineCala cupofjo.com/2019/03/strang…
Who has a not-so-stranger story for me?
Thank you Tessa for sharing this very cool story. I would love a Not-So-Stranger story in my inbox #MSWL
