I will also add that YA in particular high on my list. Also YA fantasy. #mswl

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · Feb 26

I'm open to queries and currently very caught up. (Hint, hint) I'm hungry for ya romance, queer romance for YA and adult space. Queer fiction in general. Chick lit/romcom. Women's fiction. I'd love a beach read in winter. #mswl

I'm eagerly seeking more projects in the finance/investment/business space. Also would love to see more titles on digital culture & entrepreneurship. #mswl. *visit TKA website for submissions. Tx!

Delving more into my nonfiction #MSWL, I'd love really sharp, intelligent pop culture. Contemporary cultural takes, too, w/ humor, great voice. Looking for some fun new projects to go out with early 2018.

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 16 Nov 2017

I have one #MSWL wishlist--bring me your nonfiction.

Pop culture
narrative
humor
cooking/food
diet
health
self-help
investment and business
memoir

Lest anyone misunderstand. I don't enjoy hard and bad things happening to people. Yet if they do, I celebrate those tales of survival #MSWL

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 22 Mar 2017

As a #mswl note, I'm a big fan of Jon Krakauer and also of survival stories. People who claw their way out of extreme situations. #memoir

See previous tweet for #MSWL re: southern fiction. Also eager for commercial-lit fiction. Upmarket, high concept with elegant voice.

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 13 Mar 2017

I'm hungry to find more strong nonfiction--memoir, narrative, personal development, business, music/pop culture. #MSWL #pubtip #amwriting

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL I'm looking for compulsive #WF and commercial fic with atmospheric sense of place. Where the setting IS a character on page.

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL Two of my favorite romance tropes are enemies to lovers and beauty and the beast. I love it in historical, contemp, LGBT, anything

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL also contemporary romance/wf with strong voice like THE HATING GAME.

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL Great southern commerical fiction: think Pat Conroy, Mary Kay Andrews, Anne River Siddons. Family sagas, nostalgia, anything southern

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 8 Feb 2017

It's #MSWL so a few of my desperate "wants" out. #WF of all stripes. Weepy like ME BEFORE YOU or juicy like Judy Blume SUMMER SISTERS

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 30 Jun 2016

My #mswl includes LGBT fiction and romance. Women's fiction. Romantic suspense. Big historical fiction. I love enemies to lovers stories btw

DeidreKnight @DeidreKnight · 11 Feb 2016

I would love to find a Gilded Age novel. #MSWL
