I desperately need upmarket, literary or women's fiction that takes a close look at the opioid epidemic. Maybe a person dealing with a child, spouse, or other who is addicted? Or a family saga ala Bull Mountain #MSWL
"Plot-driven story of marriage, complicated family drama, or mother/daughter relationships i.e. THIS IS HOW IT ALWAYS IS, EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU, MATING FOR LIFE, THE NEST, SHE REGRETS NOTHING, THE PEOPLE WE HATE AT THE WEDDING" @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
As a true crime fan, I always wonder about the family of a patriarch convicted of murder—especially in a case where the truth of what happened is unclear and the family stands behind him despite their secret doubts. I want the upmarket women’s fiction version of this story #MSWL
#MSWL, adult edition: epistolary; multi-generational family saga; magical realism; contemporary fantasy; speculative; southern Gothic; millennial fiction; romantic comedy
Karissa Mathae @KMathaeClose to my heart and the top of my #MSWL—make my #PrideMonth dreams come true. Give me happy LGBTQ+ couples making the PNW home, a QPoC cryptozoologist and her artist wife discovering magic in Cascadia, or #nf stories of queer legends and revolutionaries.
On my #MSWL, I want underrepresented or new perspectives on PNW history. Give me PNW creation myths told by native writers. An early pioneer falls through time. The tale of a family of immigrants to the PNW from the contemporary frame!
Silvia Moreno-Garcia @silviamgReminder that not all work by POC must be weighty, dramatic books. White authors got to write thousands of fluffy books and cash the checks. We shouldn't be appreciated only when it gets dark and horrible.
I SAY THIS TO EVERY PERSON WHO ASKS ME WHAT I'M LOOKING TO ACQUIRE.
SEND ME AN THE LIGHT AND FLUFFY POC BOOKS, ESPECIALLY FRIENDSHIP BOOKS, SIBLING BOOKS, AND BOOKS WHERE ALL THE HIJINKS HAPPEN. #MSWL twitter.com/silviamg/statu…

It seems after losing my Dad 6 yrs ago this August, I've found so much happiness in baking. I'm all about a book that celebrates making food, sharing it, and using it as a bridge to keeping connected with friends and family #MSWL
