You know what I don't have enough on my list? Dog fiction. Preferably not from the dog's POV, but a book in which a dog plays a prominent role in the protagonist's life--#WF #S or other #MSWL

The other day I was asked to promise that when a friend got in her 90s I would make sure she got a glass of wine every day. This book #MSWL -- #WF or #S about a woman who makes a promise & now she must keep it.

I’m still waiting on a #metoo book — suspense, women’s fiction... #MSWL And, as always, my genres are women’s fiction, suspense, mystery, upmarket, literary, nonfiction. I’m sure I missed something. 😉

In suspense/thriller I’m still looking for LGBTQ protagonists — maybe a series featuring a law officer or domestic suspense? #MSWL

An adult domestic suspense centered around a black hair salon/barbershop #mswl

Binge watching #ChernobylHBO and rereading #ShirleyJackson has put me in the mood for a modern ghost or horror story. If you have something spooky please send it my way. #mswl #fiction #amwriting #suspense #WritingCommunity

I'm over suspense that features a man controlling the strings with the central protag overpowered and manipulated by him. Give me your thrillers with dynamic leading women. Show me what suspense looks like btwn friends, btwn sisters. Explore these relationships deeply #MSWL

Breaking News: San Francisco became the first major U.S. city to ban the use of facial recognition technology by police and other municipal agencies nyti.ms/2VA92cJ

If you're thinking about setting your dystopian in San Francisco, think again.

But maybe a great locale for a crime or psychological suspense novel with an antihero protagonist? #MSWL

Privacy fears allayed... for now.

Talking about interesting settings for romantic suspense books today and this article about living in a ghost town popped up. I wonder what could happen in a place like this... bit.ly/2JoHQGH #MSWL

I'd love to see suspense books with interesting, evocative outdoor settings like national parks (Grand Canyon, Yellowstone) or snowy mountains or deserts.

In a poem, @Danez_Smif said, "there are no amber alerts for the amber-skinned girls." And now, I desperately need a badass thriller/suspense with POC about this. #MSWL
