#MSWL: My adult #fiction list will be smaller but think upmarket #BookClub fiction or domestic suspense--something that will keep me up at night. Really enjoyed Angie Kim's Miracle Creek. Has to feel #contemporary, braiding together issues of social import & identity.
Jennifer Chen Tran @jenchentranFor adult #NonFiction , I want narrative or memoir (must have a platform) that sheds light on an unseen corner in society or history, esp. with a social justice bent. I want the next Braiding Sweetgrass, The New Jim Crow, Five Days at Memorial.
#MSWL: Check out @stuartpalley's book Into the Inferno for a good example of what I'm looking to rep in this space. Also: medical narratives, anything shedding light on the #healthcare industry and weaving in history. Books like Heart: A History by Sandeep Jauhur, for example.
Finally posting my #MSWL 1 week after joining @FolioLiterary & @FolioJr! Please RT to yr #writer friends who are actively #querying! My list will be primarily non-fiction focused, both in the adult and children's space. You can always check out my bio on the Folio webpage too.
