Upmarket

Kaitlin Olson @KaitlinJOlson · 1d

I should probably do a proper #mswl soon, but I’ve seen a large uptick in pitches/MSs for genre romance in my inbox, which is NOT a good fit for my list. Rom-coms, upmarket women’s fiction—yes, please! But I’m not the right person for contemporary romance.

We’re sharing our 2020 Must Haves graphics over at @bookendslit. Here’s mine. I’d love to see a query from you! #MSWL

I'm looking mostly for mystery, suspense, thriller, upmarket and literary fiction. I'd also love more women's fiction. I want more stories like Whisper Network, My Sister the Serial Killer, and Bright River to name a few. #MSWL

I am very passionate about #MeToo, the Weinstein stories & in awe of the brave women who have come forward. I want more fiction like Whisper Network that tells these stories. #MSWL #WF #T #S -- upmarket or literary

What I'm hoping to see in my inbox? An upmarket fiction piece about a woman with a cool outdoorsy or animal-related job (think STEM). #MSWL

In upmarket fiction, I’m looking for precise angles:

Anything geeky but accessible

Gender fluid, masc. of centre, and non-binary protagonists.

I'd love a novel of the female code breakers of WWII. I've seen non-fic, but I haven't yet found it in upmarket #WomensFiction and I can't help but devour new WWII stories--I'm automatically picking up that book 📚 #MSWL #historical

But I also look for a “lean forward” plot. Whether a domestic mystery, family saga, upmarket fiction, or light-hearted romcom, send me your novels with that page-turning quality that keep me reading late into the night. #mswl

Dropping into #mswl with a thread about what I'm looking for now.

I would love to see an immersive 1900s historical novel that takes the reader into the life of a familiar historical figure. Can be commercial, upmarket or literary e.g. The Swans of Fifth Avenue or Euphoria. #mswl
