Reminder that I LOVE working on cookbooks and lifestyle projects but I'm pretty anti-diet and want projects that celebrate health and (all) bodies. #mswl

#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

When 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
