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: query@psliterary.com #MSWL

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!

I'd love something exploring ability/disability. Definitely #OWNVOICES. Non-fiction or fiction but my taste skews more commercial, not literary #mswl

Non-fiction about social/urban geography & how we move through our world. City planning etc leading to inequity and reinforcing racism through planning. Ideally with a feminist lens like INVISIBLE WOMEN. #mswl

Lastly (I think) #mswl: non fiction in the form of parenting, feminism, health, wellness, cooking, business, essay collections—from individuals with *large* platforms (bloggers, influencers, experts, YouTube, newsletters etc)
