Good morning! I added a few more genres to my #MSWL through the StringerLit query form. Would love some humor/satire/offbeat/quirky (we need that in the world!) and I added thrillers, upmarket. Send me your funny PB and more MG/YA. stringerlit.com

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.

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

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

Anything geeky but accessible

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