We're seeing a monumental wealth transfer from mom & pops to conglomerates.
I love houses that are characters (TURN OF THE SCREW, LITTLE STRANGER, THE DUTCH HOUSE etc). Not horror, but a little eerie/creepy/ghosty works for me! #mswl
I posted my #mswl a few places & after I put the call out I’ve had more than a dozen people (women) ask to send me something.
Men simply do not do this.
Women: if you see a call for content and you fit the bill SEND IT.
You do NOT need permission twice.
I'd *LOVE* a book proposal with current research (and research to come) about how Covid is disproportionately affecting women's careers in the short term and long term (as they are statistically more likely to take care the kids and step back). #MSWL
Time periods I like to read about: 1920s-present day. I don’t read a lot of historical fiction older than that. (Madeline Miller is really the only exception.) #MSWL
Plus-sized women’s fiction characters/heroines #MSWL
Science-based women’s health, perinatal health, maternal health, women’s mental health like LIKE A MOTHER by Angela Garbes. #mswl
A mix of themes I like to see explored (not all at once!): nature, motherhood, identity, making difficult decisions, travel, myth of meritocracy, feminism, longevity, family, heartbreak, secret histories, individuality, modernism, trust, class, money, race, art, memory. #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
