#mswl Contemporary romance set in cities besides NY or LA. What about Portland, Seattle, Austin, DC?

Patricia Nelson @patricianels · 30 Jun 2016

#mswl Contemporary or historical romance where the heroine has an unusual job. Send me your female race car drivers, codebreakers, etc.

Patricia Nelson @patricianels · 30 Jun 2016

#mswl Intricately plotted, page turning contemp women's fic w/ a unique storyline/hook + the suspense of Moriarty or the insight of Wolitzer

Patricia Nelson @patricianels · 30 Jun 2016

#mswl YA contemp that perfectly captures a specific place, ideally w/ a big dose of weird. Something like Alison Umminger's AMERICAN GIRLS.

#mswl I will forever want magical realism in MG, YA & women's fiction. Bonus if the magic is strongly rooted in a specific culture or place.

Patricia Nelson @patricianels · 30 Jun 2016

#mswl Page-turning literary fiction w/ LBTQ MCs, abt more than coming out/being closeted. Think Sarah Waters' novels or Ariel Scrag's ADAM.

If someone writes this book, SEND IT TO ME. (And FYI, I'd love to see more Muslim chars in MG/YA in general!) #mswl twitter.com/gildedspine/st…

Still actively looking to add more adult romance to my list! Send me your sexy contemps & historicals w/ smart heroines & witty banter #mswl

Still on the hunt for the perfect heartfelt magical realist MG. (Here's a good def of magical realism: michellewittebooks.com/2015/07/what-i…) #mswl #MG

Patricia Nelson @patricianels · 11 Feb 2016

Women’s fiction that could be comped to Sarah Addison Allen, Liane Moriarty, Maria Semple or Meg Wolitzer = I want to see it. #mswl #A #WF

Looking for smart, sexy contemporary romance—second chance rom & enemies to lovers stories are my faves. Diversity welcome! #mswl #A #R #CR
