Tis the season for holiday rom coms and I am in the mood to binge. Send me yours to read #MSWL #holidayreads

Joanna MacKenzie @joannamackenzie · 2 Aug 2019

Give me @netflix’s #OTHERHOOD in book form, please. I’m dying to read your stories about women’s second (and third) acts. #MSWL

Joanna MacKenzie @joannamackenzie · 7 Mar 2019

Just started watching @NBCGoodGirls and can't stop. Please send me books like this: women pushed to the edge, who push back. #MSWL

I'd also love to see a new take on Beaches (you know, the Bette Midler-Barbara Hershey movie), which I just re-watched - I'm really all over this best friends thing #MSWL

A weekend reading series I attended reminded me of another #MSWL: adult best friend stories. Those relationships run so deep so what happens when they fall apart? Send me your friendships gone awry stories!

My summer #mswl: mothers with secret lives; Midwest stories with a strong sense of place; character driven mysteries and thrillers (maybe starring mothers with secret lives); fish out of water narratives, both serious and funny (maybe with something Polish).

I'd love to see a novel featuring Sara Paulson's character from Ocean's 8 - a mom with a secret or secret life, with a perfect mix of humor and heart. #MSWL

#MSWL A YA thriller in the spirit of I Know What You Did Last Summer. Give me some juicy secrets. Who's with me?

So stoked for #RMFW2016 #MSWL women's fic, mystery/thriller for adult and ya. Bring your pitches and let's talk stories. @BrowneandMiller

Joanna MacKenzie @joannamackenzie · 11 Apr 2016

Vegas! See all of you lovelies at #RT16! I'd love to hear about your YA and adult romances and domestic thrillers. #mswl @Daninoel25
