I really enjoy noir mysteries. They are so sinister and devious and delicious. I really enjoy flawed characters that you should hate but kinda love. Send me your messed up, nefarious, duplicitous, shrewd, sneaky, deceitful, calculating, manipulative, scheming, anti-heroes! #mswl

eternal #mswl: character-driven historical epics (think the next Gabaldon or Follett); twisty, page-turning suspense & noir; snappy, quirky, fresh narrative nonfic; & incisive memoir that uses author’s personal story to explore a larger topic. big soft spot for dance/music/arts!

I just finished WESTSIDE last night, and it has a lot of qualities I'm looking for: historical, noir, speculative element, gorgeous writing, great voice. #MSWL

If I could manifest ONE book onto my desk, it'd be a thoughtful look at issues of race and class in the American South...wrapped up in a domestic noir or Tana French-y mystery. A tall order, I know! But one of y'all has to be writing it, right? #MSWL

Would love to see noir detective stories set in almost any other genre but the mystery must be central/taken seriously! #mswl

Basically I'm still looking for all my old #MSWL requests: Victorian era; evil children; remote places; noir; unreliable narrators, etc.

Huge fan of domestic noir that gets under the skin - I've seen bad mothers by the bucketload but what about fathers and daughters?

#MSWL: A Riverdale-esque YA retelling of a classic, non-murdery tale. But less soapy, more literary, and turn the noir up to 11.

#MSWL: I'd love a noir told from the femme fatale POV, rather than the PI.

I'd love to see more noir w/ a strong sense of place and memorable voice. Hillbilly noir. Noir set in foreign counties & small towns. #MSWL
