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

Smart “Book Club” book. Literary writing meets commercial storytelling = upmarket (Lori Lansens, Joyce Maynard, Meg Mitchell Moore) #MSWL #A

I’ve been looking for a historical upmarket novel about a cult or commune (like Arcadia by Lauren Groff) for awhile #MSWL #A

I love coming-of-age stories but a plot bigger than the internal struggles (i.e. The Age of Miracles, The Secrets of Lake Road) #MSWL #A
