Western, set in Northern California. Any genre: historical, scifi, fantasy, contemporary, etc. Diversity a must. #MSWL

Mary C. Moore @Mary_C_Moore · Jan 15

Romcom (or just rom) mystery in a kooky setting or strange land. Think a contemporary twist on Mary Stewart and Victoria Holt. #MSWL

Adult, YA, or MG magical realism from an author that understands the roots of the genre. #MSWL

Strong epic fantasy with a matriarchal society. Give me GoT without the boys. #MSWL

Will make exception for Oberyn Martell.

Adult fantasy that crosses over to bookclub fiction a la THE SNOWCHILD or NIGHT CIRCUS. #MSWL
