This pandemic and the general greyness of life rn (see my last tweet lol) has made me obsessed with reading ambitious epics with happy endings. Diana Gabaldon, Ken Follett, Deb Harkness...agents, pls send me your upmarket adult historical fantasy/romance! #mswl

eternal #mswl: character-driven historical epics (think the next Gabaldon or Follett); twisty, page-turning suspense & noir; snappy, quirky, fresh narrative nonfic; & incisive memoir that uses author’s personal story to explore a larger topic. big soft spot for dance/music/arts!
