This is a #MSWL I like to put out there every now and then. I want an upmarket women’s fiction where a family member is on trial for murder and the protagonist(s) don’t know whether he did it or not. I want to see the meat of the emotions in that unthinkable situation.
Drooling over some recent deal announcements over here at @bookendslit Congratulations to all authors, agents and editors. I would love to see more fiction with dogs, especially suspense/mystery/thriller #amquerying #MSWL
Donald Maass @DonMaassWe in the writing biz should note the passing of Evelyn Berezin, creator of the first word processing machine—and much else. Appreciate her at your next keyboard session...

#MSWL PSA: I am NOT the match for a soapy, murder-mystery, contemporary YA. My best friend was murdered and I find these stories highly triggering. However, if you were to look at violence against women in a careful, nuanced and informed way, I could be your perfect match.
Grace Kendall @GraceKendallLitIt's the holiday season, so I'll put a #MSWL out into the world: I'd love to have a new #DearGenius out in the market BUT written by one of our great editors of color. A memoir, a how-to, a narrative guide to succeeding in this business from a POV beyond the white center. (1/2)
Every year I give my assistant and/or interns a copy of Dear Genius. Instead, it would be awesome to give them a classic, informed tome to help guide them through this business in ways that I never will be able to personally.

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessicaAs the year comes to an end and queries slow I start to think about what I'd like to see come 2019. #MSWL.
I'm still looking for domestic suspense and thrillers, aka psychological suspense. I'd especially like stories featuring women in situations that aren't classic husband/wife stories. #MSWL
