—Mystery and horror in certain genres (In mystery, think cozies or women’s fiction-adjacent, instead of hard-boiled detective stories; in horror, think Hill House, not Halloween).
—Character-driven sci-fi and fantasy. Send your sweeping, sexy Kushiel’s Dart-style epics, please!
What's called “Women’s Fiction” but really, any marginalized gender MC with a personal journey as an A plot and romance as a B plot (if it's there at all) akin to SUCH A FUN AGE, BIG SUMMER, LUSTER, HOLLY BANKS FULL OF ANGST #MSWL
Becca Podos @RebeccaPodosFor goodness sake, somebody PLEASE deliver my a plucky fun queer YA historical in the vein of Gentleman Jack #MSWL 🙏🏼
It’s occurred to me that when I tweeted this, I wasn’t selling adult romance/WF. Now I am and good god, send me your joyous adult queer historical novels (and if you’ve already subbed me something like this, do feel free to bring it to my attention ☺️) #MSWL
Becca Podos @RebeccaPodosSo I guess I should listen to Folklore?
If somebody wants to send me a Women’s Fiction that hits like The Last Great American Dynasty, for which the tagline “she had a marvelous time ruining everything” would be appropriate... I’ll be here #MSWL
