I would also love to see more Upmarket and Commercial/Women’s fiction (think compulsive book club fiction). I know this can be a broad category, but I am particularly drawn to books that play with power structures, friendship dynamics and odd familial structures. #MSWL

- Feel good stories that center female friendship + group dynamics a la Babysitters Club or teen-versions of League of Their Own + Call the Midwife

Specifically, I'm looking for complex family sagas that span decades (must include a contemporary component). Stories about friendships and the ways those bonds build and sometimes fracture. Sibling stories. Novels about home, belonging, lineage, legacy, and inheritance. 3/10

To go with this, I'd love more stories that not just deal with women and their issues overall but also ones that deal with friendships as we get older - how they evolve, change, and how we make friends as adults (it's not easy) #MSWL

This is the first time I am open to Picture Books! I am selectively looking for: whimsical and funny stories, especially those that showcase diversity. Family and friendship themes are my favorite. It's a plus if you are an author/illustrator, but not a must.

I’d love to see more revenge stories (specifically in the thriller category). It could be a scorned lover, a group of friends avenging someone's death, a sister story, etc. If your character is in their villain era, send it my way! #MSWL

I can’t get enough of: family sagas, female friendships, edgy psychological suspense, closed-setting novels, anti-heroines, smart romances, comedy of manners, found family, genre-blend romcoms, and change-one-thing-in-our-world speculative fiction.

I always ask for big emotions in MSs, and right now, I especially want joy. You can make it serious, but I want moments of levity too. Bring me laugh-out-loud humor, swoonworthy romance, delightful friendships, and lots of wonder. #MSWL

I love histories about real, bad@$$, quirky, or hilarious women who defied societal expectations. Come at me with a (well-researched) story about Julie d'Aubigny, Wu Zetian, Cheng I Sao, or Anne Bonny and Mary Read's unusual friendship, anything in that vein.
