Aunt Polly was a hot-headed tornado caged by patriarchy, enraged behind every blink of her eye & was smarter than all the murderous Peaky Blinders lumped together. If you've written a Historical Thriller abt a female crime boss that rivals her energy, I want to read it.

There was a Doubleday bookstore in the Barbizon Hotel and I desperately want a historical romance (1930s-50s) set there. #mswl

Throwing a new #MSWL into the universe: a YA historical fiction about disco subculture! 🕺🏿

I’m particularly interested in a story that explores:

🌀disco’s beginnings in Black and queer communities

🌀 the commercialization and appropriation of the genre as it gained popularity

🌀 the (racist and homophobic foundation of the) anti-disco movement

💫 Specifically in historical romance, I’d love something non Regency, late 19th/early 20th century. Like Joanna Shupe, but QUEER IT UP. #MSWL
