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
The New York Times @nytimesBreaking 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.

That's it, more women's fiction with girls trips. Or, a domestic suspense featuring women's friendships (maybe a girls trip). #MSWL I also love the idea of a book featuring new and old wives/spouses.
Authors! I've been closed to queries for 3 months due to ill health in my family. I am re-opening today, but being somewhat specific on what I'm seeking. Please read this thread or my #MSWL manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… (The tulip is just for fun.) ....
This has been a good week for catching up on submissions. My #MSWL hasn’t changed much—women’s fiction, suspense, upmarket & literary. Also nonfiction (no memoir please). My inbox has room.
