Hi Agents: Updating my #MSWL to let you know that I'm no longer able to acquire books that are strictly romance focused, though romantic sub-plots are fine. Still looking forward to seeing your thrillers, mild horror and stories with fantastical elements.

Agents: One of my favorite movies is Under the Tuscan Sun. If you have something that has similar vibes (does not have to be Italy) send it my way! #MSWL

Agents: I crave a 90's-esque sweep-me-off-my-feet romantic masterpiece. Think The Holiday, You've Got Mail, Sleepless In Seattle. Give me female gazey protagonists and at least one good reason to cry, then laugh, then cry again! #MSWL

Sleep is important but...I stayed awake dreaming of a compulsively readable thriller about a famous woman's descent into madness, drawing heavily from Perfect Blue and Black Swan. Agents if you have it, send it. #MSWL

Please someone send me a grownup Veronica Mars. I'm talking that hard boiled-but-not, sassy detective with a heart of gold. A cast of secondary characters that capture your whole heart and a star-crossed romance with an HEA wouldn't hurt either. #MSWL

I am not a good fit for:
- Sorry no straight romcoms at this time
- Procedurals
- Misogyny
- Anything that leans too literary
- Stories centering around police officers or military
- Gore, body horror
- Erotica
- High Fantasy
- Space operas
- Childrens fiction (MG, YA, PB)
