#MSWL 5/5 Compelling #historical fiction that contributes to today's cultural conversation or helps us understand the world a little better--and that makes me want to google everything there is to know about that time/incident/place/culture

#MSWL 4/5 Gateway #horror or mystery/horror crossovers. Spooky, sometimes dark novels for the scaredy cats like me who have become fans of masters like Alma Katsu and Alex North.

#MSWL 3/5 Page-turning, atmospheric, sharply written #crime, #suspense, #thrillers They're sometimes about family/relationships or social issues or culture but are very much in their genre.

#MSWL 2/5 Novels with an emotional center--the kind that hits you in the heart or gut and sometimes the funnybone. These novels (often #bookclub) don't always have happy endings but they are ultimately hopeful.

For those #amquerying I updated my #MSWL. And #pubtip, if you're wondering if your manuscript is too long--it probably is. 65k-95k is average imho. Thank you wonderful writers--it's hard out there but we're looking for you! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/lori…

Updated my #MSWL. For #fiction I would love the next Something in the Water/Catherine Steadman or The Whisper Man/Alex North. Romantic suspense, romcoms, & juicy and/or heartfelt fiction a la Elizabeth Strout or Liane Moriarty. I like to laugh and cry. bit.ly/2Tztzdu

#writers I'm not against alcohol, but I feel like I'm getting a hangover from some submissions, esp. #thrillers and #suspense. Protagonists drinking bourbon, tequila, whatever, straight (and frequently) doesn't convince me she/he/they are strong or tough or complicated. #mswl

This might be most specific of all. Looking for a narrative on blue cheese that is captivating! #MSWL
