New Year New #MSWL Me! Looking for:
✨Historical fiction featuring strong women and grounded Lost Apothecary mystic vibes 🔮
✨Quirky, accidental (or not so?) murders a la Only Murders in the Building 🔪
✨Novels w/ the Ted Lasso effect (uplifting but also unflinchingly real) ♥️

Calling all smart, uplifting commercial fiction with a speculative slant that basically encapsulates how my heart grew watching the last season of The Good Place and somehow emotionally attaches me to a weirdly wonderful cast of characters like this elite crew. #MSWL

it’s fall, which means I need some historical fiction with The Lost Apothecary vibes.

Agents, will trade crockpot soup recipes and weirdly specific fall playlists for every badass women historical fic sub I receive! #MSWL

getting antsy for our own roaring 20s so in celebration, agents I would love some rebellious historical fiction in my inbox! Things I love:
🔥strong women subverting expectation
🔥1920s- on
🔥anything with the vibe of Taylor Swift’s “The Last Great American Dynasty” #MSWL

looking for complicated twenty-something friendship stories with the emotional resonance of Lauren Conrad’s infamous “I want to forgive you, and I want to forget you” line from The Hills #mswl
