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

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
