Are there any books (or if anyone wants to pitch me one! query(at)psliterary(dot)com) about mixed up internet identities in a fun way (two people with the same name getting each others' emails and what not)? I'd be interested in a romcom or upmarket fiction in that space! #mswl

Ok I want an (off world) book in which a civilized technological (maybe emerging technological) society uncovers the remnants of a lost world, a different species, who once occupied their world, even achieved greater than them before their ruin. Literary or upmarket SFF?? #MSWL

My taste skews toward upmarket and unforgettable voices and art—which HAS to be paired with a strong sales hook that can be summed up in an intriguing line or two. #MSWL 5/?

This pandemic and the general greyness of life rn (see my last tweet lol) has made me obsessed with reading ambitious epics with happy endings. Diana Gabaldon, Ken Follett, Deb Harkness...agents, pls send me your upmarket adult historical fantasy/romance! #mswl

Thanks to a chat with @jennychen_jc, I now have the perfect way of describing the kind of upmarket suspense I want to read:

"Roselle Lim, with a body Body Count" 😂

On the lighter side, upmarket fiction & beach reading sans the beach! Historical fiction, romantic comedies, family sagas, I'm open to pretty much anything with humor and heart

Also on the adult end I would love to find commercial and upmarket friendship focused stories that really show the complexities of modern female friendship--good bad ugly and everything in between #mswl
