My areas of expertise are upmarket and literary fiction, women's fiction, mystery, suspense and thriller. I love books w/ strong family focus (found, friends, those you're born with) and home. Even in mystery I love those connections #MSWL

#MSWL time!

From @BookEndsJessica:

"Upmarket fiction about family, friendship, found family--especially focusing on marginalized characters. Recent reads I wish I’d repped: YINK, WHERE IS YOUR HUZBAND, A HISTORY OF WILD PLACES, THE LAST THING HE TOLD ME."

In my inbox everyday looking for an exciting novel. I'd love an upmarket mystery with complex characters and a hooky crime, or family drama, or something that just catches me by surprise. Here's what I read in 2022. I did not dislike 1 yet. (titles in next tweet) #MSWL

Adult: Horror of all stripes - psychological, body horror, folk horror, gothic, occult, hauntings, genre blends: horror/mystery, horror/thriller, etc. I gravitate more toward literary & upmarket writing than commercial.

YA: Same as above, basically!

-- OUR FLAG MEANS DEATH -- I'd love a queer take on pirates in the adult upmarket/book club space, in the vein of OUTLAWED but out at sea. I'd also be interested in this for YA or MG graphic novel!

And brief #MSWL moment: I’d love to find even more page-turning novels of complex joy that honor rather than blunt life’s sharper edges. I’m seeking too more literary & upmarket fiction from international writers whose stories are site-specific yet universally resonant. 💜

I think I haven't mentioned what I'm looking for in a while: thrillers for adults and romance/rom-com for adults that have fresh hooks. Upmarket fiction from underrepresented perspectives. I am not open to expanding my children's list at the moment. #MSWL
