#MSWL. Please send me some light, fun reading! Romantic comedies & uplifting women's fiction. Historical fiction set in glamorous locales and a glamorized past like THE GIRL IN WHITE GLOVES or AND THEY CALLED IT CAMELOT.

“In non-fiction, I want to read about historical funny women, your Lucille Balls and Bea Arthurs. For humor in fiction, think the next Mrs. Maisel.” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

#mswl I'm looking for romantic comedies, and slow-burning romances. No non-fiction, historical novels or memoirs. I'm very selective with YA/NA but will take a look if the plot pulls me in!

Another #mswl for today: historical fiction set in the 20th century.

#MSWL historical rom coms with a modern sensibility, adult or YA. (Agented only.)

I’m particularly interested in historical fiction and nonfiction for adults and juveniles. Give me the hidden backstory on an iconic event or person, or a pivotal but lesser-known character or incident. I want stories of people and issues that moved the needle. #MSWL

2. Women’s Fiction! I’d love to find the next Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick. (This is a WISH list, remember?) I love interesting voices/POVs, dual timelines with a historical feel, rhythmic language, generational sagas. #MSWL

In Adult Horror #MSWL I'm partial to:
- Historical and/or sub-genre horror
- Literary-esque voice
- Not a slasher movie plot
- MAIN CHARACTER DRIVEN, not monster/killer driven
- I love moody, atmospheric, and creepy af
- Creative/unique monsters (if applicable)
- Gothic a plus
