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

Upmarket, structurally interesting, sweeping love stories of all kinds. I’d love a LGBTQ story in the vein of ONE DAY/THE VERSIONS OF US. Something like a more commercial PAYING GUESTS (which I loved, but I'm not interested in ton of capital L literary fiction right now). #mswl

#mswl: upmarket/structurally interesting/sweeping love stories of all kinds. i.e. not a romance but perhaps a LGBTQ love story a la ONE DAY.

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