In short: my dream book has lovely sentence-level writing that pulls me in to the pages, an interesting plot with a good hook, is accessible but smart, and something with commercial oomph. That’s not asking for too much, right?? #MSWL
brittany packnett cunningham @MsPackyettiI need someone to write a comprehensive book like “What To Expect when you’re Expecting” but for women and aging.
I mean someone should warn you that you will have to break up w cheese *ahead of time.*
I would like it to be written by a Black woman.
Thanks in advance.
This is a great idea. #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
Here are some specifics on what I’ll be looking for:
1. Thrillers! I love gritty, juicy, scandalous thrillers. My favorite thriller authors include Gillian Flynn, Jessica Knoll, Lisa Jewell, and I’m excited to read what Samantha Downing + Wendy Heard write next. #MSWL
As of today, I am officially opening to submissions for Adult Fiction. (!!!) I am specifically interested in female-driven Thrillers/Suspense, and Women’s Fiction. Help me spread the word? 💜
Oh, hello! At long last, my #MSWL page is up! I will try to keep this as up to date as possible. (I also regularly tweet things I'm looking for here.) Check it out:

Child-in-danger thrillers. What's your stance?
They've never bothered me, and folks used to tell me, You'll get it when you're a mom... Um no, sorry, guess I'm missing that particular mom gene. Ha! I still like dark. #mswl #thrillers
Look, I don’t know how you could turn the The Svalbard Global Seed Vault into a YA novel about a teenager living at the edge of the world while helping to caretake seeds that are the literal fruits of many cultures, but if anyone’s got an idea... #MSWL
Okay #writer and #amquerying friends, I'm dying for some new #adult #horror-- could be speculative, realistic, paranormal, what have you. I'm particularly keen to see #horror that explores important contemporary issues, a la Get Out. You've got it, I wanna read it. #MSWL
