The other day I was asked to promise that when a friend got in her 90s I would make sure she got a glass of wine every day. This book #MSWL -- #WF or #S about a woman who makes a promise & now she must keep it.

I’m still waiting on a #metoo book — suspense, women’s fiction... #MSWL And, as always, my genres are women’s fiction, suspense, mystery, upmarket, literary, nonfiction. I’m sure I missed something. 😉

In suspense/thriller I’m still looking for LGBTQ protagonists — maybe a series featuring a law officer or domestic suspense? #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jun 15

And in nonfiction I want more women & AOC in business & personal development. I also want books like So You Want to Talk About Race #MSWL

Can I get this in a book? LGBTQ Friday Night Knitting Club please. #mswl nytimes.com/2019/06/07/nyr…

Reading moods also inform my #MSWL Current mood—fun women’s fiction.

I'm looking at my Goodreads to see which books I've read this year that I want more of. US AGAINST YOU, THE GREAT ALONE, THE GARDEN OF SMALL BEGINNINGS, WHEN WE LEFT CUBA, WHISPER NETWORK. #MSWL

And where is the LGBTQ domestic suspense I've been asking and begging for? I still haven't received it. Still waiting. #MSWL I'm also still obsessed with Alaska & would be thrilled to see more books set there.

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?

We were just two people headed in the same direction & looking for a quiet train car. It happens everyday. There’s a story there. #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.

Just started The Whisper Network & like Big, Little, Lies it has a transcript element (from a court transcript). I LOVE this and would love to see more epistolary novels. #MSWL

In YA there exist friendship breakup books. This is a hard fact of the teen years. It doesn’t end in adulthood. I’d like to see these books in women’s fiction. #MSWL
