The kind of light romantic women’s fiction that deserves the illustrated cover #mswl

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 13 Jun 2018

I love rom-com women's fiction for my personal reading, so I'd love some on my list. #MSWL

Body positivity in YA or WF, with a character who actually *likes* exercise! We exist!! #MSWL

After a bit of brainstorming with @maria_ribas, I'd love to see some "women behaving badly" fiction. Give me your Miranda Priestly, your Cersei Lannister, your Bellatrix Lestrange. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 18 Sep 2017

I'd like some sweet, somewhat quiet, women's fiction that will fill my heart with joy and warmth a la HOW TO FIND LOVE IN A BOOKSHOP #MSWL

Still looking for WF, new interpretation of city gal on the dating scene? #MSWL (Bonus points if she's not a manic pixie dream girl.)

Happy #MSWL-day. I want smart, funny commercial fiction for and about professional women.

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 30 Jun 2016

I'm feeling very into talky commercial fiction, that's not into "women's issues," but is about women. Know what I'm sayin'? #MSWL

#MSWL women's fiction about surrogacy, lifting the curtain.

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 11 Feb 2016

Honest, non-thriller, YA or WF about family of national politicians. Hit me with that campaign trail! #MSWL
