I’m not closing to queries, but I am more behind than I’d like. Come January I’ll post my #MSWL mostly in mystery, suspense, upmarket, women’s & literary fiction. I also want select nonfiction.

I’m especially focused on finding more women & BIPOC business leaders to be the voices of the future. I love leadership books. They are my passion. I love books with fresh perspectives. #MSWL

I'm looking mostly for mystery, suspense, thriller, upmarket and literary fiction. I'd also love more women's fiction. I want more stories like Whisper Network, My Sister the Serial Killer, and Bright River to name a few. #MSWL

I see a lot of WF about a woman whose partner has cheated on her. What about the other side? What if you never wanted them to leave them? What if you just wanted to be the other? #MSWL

I read a ton of mystery/thriller/suspense submissions as well as women's fiction & I find that I've become increasingly disappointed when the love interest pops in and it's not a LGBTQ character. Where are my LGBTQ characters? #MSWL

books on negotiation, but for career negotiators, not those negotiating for a job. I'd like books on diversity like White Fragility or So You Want to Talk About Race. I want books by women for women and especially for everyone. #MSWL

You know what I don't have enough on my list? Dog fiction. Preferably not from the dog's POV, but a book in which a dog plays a prominent role in the protagonist's life--#WF #S or other #MSWL
