I love novels that feature: therapy, cooking, stage magic, queer women, horoscopes and tarot, good dogs that don't die, holidays that go wrong. #mswl

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · Oct 3

I'm looking for regional crime, particularly set in Yorkshire, Scotland or Ireland, particularly with a female slant #mswl

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · Oct 3

Historical fiction that showcases diversity and tells the kind of historical stories we're not used to hearing, and the kind of historical figures we're not used to seeing #mswl

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · Oct 3

Darker, issue-led women's fiction, and books about difficult or challenging family dynamics that we might not have seen before #mswl

My #MSWL: love stories - high-concept love stories (maybe with a speculative twist?), fresh takes on millennial dating, big historical epic romances, romances in beautiful dream destinations...

(no wait, a few other key words: magicians, lesbians, cooking, child narrators, gymnastics, unrequited love, ambitious women, fat women)

As usual this list isn't exhaustive, and I never know what I might fall in love with. Submission guidelines are here blakefriedmann.co.uk/submissions

But I'm also keen to expand into science writing this year, particularly in areas of health and technology - if you have an idea, speak up!

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · 13 Apr 2017

In non-fiction, as always I'm looking for groundbreaking new ideas in personal growth and self-help, and beautiful voices.

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · 13 Apr 2017

In commercial women's fiction, I'm really looking for books for the 20-30 age bracket at the moment.

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · 13 Apr 2017

I see a lot of YA but I'm really keen for something that's beautifully-written, emotional and set in contemporary UK (please no fantasy!)

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · 13 Apr 2017

Book club novels with a secret to figure out at their centre - that partial reveal style that keeps you guessing, and turning the page.

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · 13 Apr 2017

I love upmarket women's fiction novels with sprawling casts of characters, like THE SECRET INTENSITY OF EVERY DAY LIFE.

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · 13 Apr 2017

Huge fan of domestic noir that gets under the skin - I've seen bad mothers by the bucketload but what about fathers and daughters?

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · 13 Apr 2017

I'd love a well-written procedural detective series (think Jackson Brodie or Dublin Murder Squad) with a well-thought out mystery!

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · 13 Apr 2017

My heart always leaps at novels set in my old stomping ground - Sheffield, Leeds, Barnsley, Wakefield and the Peak District.

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · 13 Apr 2017

I'm really looking to build #MG, for 9+. Humour, brilliant world-building a la Eoin Colfer, exciting adventure - send it my way!

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · 13 Apr 2017

First of all, as always, is love stories! Not enough love stories on my list. I like love stories that are clever, contemporary and fresh.

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · 13 Apr 2017

OK guys, I'm back. And I've been thinking about what I'd most like to read this summer! #mswl
