#mswl I’m really craving a romance novel set in Nashville/country music scene.
I miss Rayna & Deacon.
I want a book that captures the love stories of country music. Could be m/m like the Nashville plot, could be f/f like an alt-country Brandi Carlisle esque romance.
A reminder that I work on cookbooks and I love them!
I love food. I love celebrating it. I love eating it. I love talking about it. All food is good food.
These are most of my cookbooks that I’ve worked on over the last ~8 years.
Pitch me platform driven food books! #mswl
Are there any books (or if anyone wants to pitch me one! query(at)psliterary(dot)com) about mixed up internet identities in a fun way (two people with the same name getting each others' emails and what not)? I'd be interested in a romcom or upmarket fiction in that space! #mswl
I would love to see any and all books pitched to me about MLMs. Fresh angle non-fiction (author with a platform or extremely narrative/memoir) or fiction (murder mystery at an MLM? Sign me up!)
Pitch: email@example.com #MSWL
#mswl fiction in the motherhood space with ANOTHER big layer (i.e. capitalism, race, health, disability etc)
#mswl generational stories of parenthood and family with non-binary and/or trans characters in the commercial or historical adult fiction genre (ie. heavy with plot!)
I am enjoying Instagram more than Twitter these days so a reminder you can get my bookish advice over there too: instagram.com/carlywatters/
Today I posted some non fiction #MSWL in my IG stories if you want to tune in!
Emily Lloyd-Jones @em_llojoYou know what I want more of? Casual disability rep. Like, not books about ‘overcoming’ a disability (barf) but just like casts of characters who happen to be disabled. Fantasy books. Sci fi. Romance. All the genres.
Carly Watters @carlywattersWhen our @PSLiterary query inbox opens again for the New Year please send me adult commercial/upmarket novels that are 70-85k. I would love some short and punchy novels. I don't want to read anything over 90k right now. My attention span (& the rest of the world) is SHORT. #mswl
I'm thinking My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite short. #mswl
