It’s Strictly season (AKA the best season of all) and I have a REALLY specific #mswl request for any #romantasy authors and agents out there: I would LOVE to read a book that captures the EXACT vibes of this frozen rumba ❄️
Oh, hey there! Editor @HCI_Books here. #agents and #writers send me your proposals for books that connect food-body-environment. Or maybe just body-environment. Or maybe just body-exercise. Loving these topics right now! #nonfiction #MSWl #publishing #gimme #writingcommmunity
#MSWL A character dealing with the 5 stages of grief, but as a secondary theme (is not the main story of the book, but plays a major role in the conclusion of the story)
Ex Beyonce Fan @kingbealestreetThis is literally a coming of age movie 😭 https://twitter.com/i/status/1702829078523359556
