Contemporary romance! I'm looking for two different things here: first is complex, emotional, upmarket contemporary—think Kate Clayborn or Lucy Parker. Love caretakers for this, especially if they’re kind of grumpy/seem uncaring on the outside. #mswl

And finally: I'd love a timely upmarket thriller with a ripped from the headlines hook and killer characters. Think ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL or PEOPLE LIKE HER.

Upmarket women's fiction that explores issues we tend to minimize or ignore as a society. #MSWL

Upmarket speculative fiction. Grounded fantasy, magical realism, retellings of fairy/folk tales, horror. The majority of my favourite books of all time live in this genre. #MSWL

I suppose it’s that time again. A new #MSWL thread for the new year! 🤞🏻 pic.twitter.com/wIlpiwFUSl

Let’s start with literary fiction, because that’s what I’m the most eager to read as 2023 begins. Contemporary voices, unusual storytelling structures, complicated platonic and romantic relationships, upmarket genre novels. I want beautiful prose with a splashy concept. #MSWL

FICTION: I am open to ALL genres. I gravitate toward books by women, for women, whether commercial, upmarket, or literary. My taste is eclectic: I adore feel good stories filled with levity and humor *and* dark novels that unsettle and disturb.

⭐️Upmarket contemporary romance with substance, centering characters of traditionally marginalized identities (think Furia, Felix Ever After)

So what do I want? My musts are:
⭐️big bets with high-concept commercial hooks, expert plotting and pacing, & lead-title potential
⭐️upmarket and unforgettable writing/art
⭐️a strong sales hook that can be summed up in an intriguing line or two #MSWL

Doing my 2023 #mswl wishlist early this year, because Twitter might implode at any second! Here’s a non-exhaustive list of what I’m looking for (in all age ranges!) for 2023:

Upmarket fiction! Anything with a big hook and accessible writing has my name all over it. Does it feel like something your book club would love? Send it my way! Recent faves include LESSONS IN CHEMISTRY, TRUE BIZ, TOMORROWx3, and CARRIE SOTO. The bigger the concept, the better!

#amquerying authors: I'm dying to find the perfect Cosy Fantasy (Comp: T.J. Klune) and/or the nerdiest, puzzle-or footnote-filled upmarket Literary Fantasy (Comp: R.F. Kuang's BABEL). Send similar manuscripts my way! 😍 #MSWL (PS: Animals are a plus! 🐧)
