A last thought for the eve, before W. descends into her multi-story-deep reading cavern. One #MSWL for NF: a recent acq. linked me to this 'practical philosophers' project' of @ReD_Associates, which aids biz theory: amzn.to/30EHuSu. Would love a project like this for me!
Met @kristywharvey today at my library and she signed all three of my books! Agents can be fangirls too 😉
Y’all, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love contemporary women’s fiction. If you can write sisters like Kristy, send it my way! #mswl
I thought it might be worth noting that I'm not interested in novels of any genre that take place in the modern day and have military ties to the plot. Personal preference. (Yes, I'm still on my long weekend.) #WritingCommunity #MSWL #askagent
#MSWL someone write me a paranormal legal thriller, with a series in mind, with a hotshot young attorney who gets help from the ghost of former detective who can’t let his work go even in death (or something along those lines).

Léonicka @leonickaSo if you’re a writer of color with an Adult retelling of a fairytale or kids’ fable (including non-European stories) send it to me. #MSWL
I’d also be keen to read a lougarou book by a Haitian writer. I’d waive my no horror rule for that. #MSWL
Léonicka @leonickaThese books also date as far back as the 1970s. So clearly the fairytale thing is a perennial fave. Reports of it being “over saturated” might be overblown.

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeI won't say just because this is my professional Twitter but I will say I was younger than expected and my German mother had already been telling me about periods for years. Still didn't recognize mine when it happened or even fully understand what having a period meant. twitter.com/1mercysarah/st…
For any writers out there writing about menstruation (#mswl) remember that knowing=/=understanding. And also kids sometimes think they know, but they don't.
