I'm watching the new Father of the Bride and I want to see a story about the sister. #mswl a story about a queer girl who is seen as a failure by her family and gets tasked to design the whole wedding parties attire.

Happy Friday!

Want to let #amquerying folks know that my current #mswl is exclusively (hyperbole!) sapphic, dark, comedic horror feat. BIPOC casts!

I’m a fan of Scream, Fear Street 1994, Urban Legend (2001), The Descent

I’m that goofy bitch from the block w/as big mouth!!!

Needed more words 😅:

Looking for this in YA and Adult!

If you don’t have horror, my next wish is contemporary women’s fiction featuring a main character or ensemble cast in the mid-20 - mid-30s. I’m not married and don’t want kids; I have hangovers and lesbian drama 🥳 #mswl

Here's a sweet #MSWL tweet from @AgentJessicaA!

"I want more joyful books—book club fiction, women’s fiction, romance, memoir—just books that are filled with positivity and hope. Uplifting, happy stories with BIPOC and LGBTQ+ characters are especially wanted."
