Women

Real talk #MSWL: Black women with other races and genders. I want a book that reflects my reality and family.

I still get surprise from older family members who learn my husband isn't Black, or that I dated a Mexican girl in middle school. We can do better than this. We must.

It's still time for some #MSWL! Submission guidelines on m'blog: bit.ly/2p3a5iO; looking for wide range of YA & adult fiction!

Want to see, esp., v. smart romance, with smart humor (a la @rainbowrowell), and any literary or women's fiction featuring a healthy marriage.

Would love to see romances/WF books featuring protagonists who aren't in their 20s/early 30s. Fixing marriages/rekindling the spark, reunited after divorce, second (or third!) chance at love with someone else, etc. Doesn't have to be dark AT ALL. #mswl

Women making waves in a male-dominated industry. #mswl

Tahra @calixofcoffee · 12 Sep 2018

Domestic suspense/WF (Gone Girl, Beautiful Bad, Big Little Lies) where are the diverse voices for this? #mswl

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · 12 Sep 2018

Girls and women and enbys who love sex or love talking about it and just don’t give a fuck about propriety #mswl

#MSWL I've also always wanted a wf book about perfume. Which, let's be honest, probably has some sort of magic in it? But maybe not!

Top of my #MSWL: women's fiction and romance by/about underrepresented voices. Contemporary. Historical. Contemporary or historical with a magical element. Grounded SF. Romcoms. Happy books. Also, maybe a big, sweeping gothic romance?

Mary C. Moore @Mary_C_Moore · 12 Sep 2018

Latinx voices, all any stories, MG and women’s fiction. #MSWL

- Spooky MG ghost stories
- MG stories with witches and elaborate settings

#mswl I want dense, thinky, hard SF by women. Show me the physics or the biology or the chemistry behind your world, and I'm all in.

also looking for womens fiction with or without romance:
*stories that focus on some aspect of the female experience (the label "womens fic" is not entirely accurate for all experiences)
*stories that make you think
*stories that make you feel
*stories that are a fresh take

#MSWL American Horror Story: Coven...but good. Gothic boarding schools, empowered women, clash of ideals, exploration of how history and culture shapes magic

DongWon @dongwon · 12 Sep 2018

Smart, savvy, adult thrillers with a literary voice and crossover appeal. Some speculative aspect is fine. Think Tana French or Lauren Beukes. No cops. No sexual violence. Women, PoC, other marginalized folk would be ideal. #MSWL

Liza Dawson Assoc. @LizaDawsonAssoc · 12 Sep 2018

Happy #MSWL Day! Any authors curious what Liza's wishing for? Here it is!

Zesty historical adventure/thriller
Literary women’s fiction about motherhood
Elegant, smart spy novel by someone in the intelligence community
Narrative nonfiction about a turning point in history

It's #MSWL day! Here are some specific things I'd love to get. I'm closed to queries currently but reopen in October, so tuck these in your back pocket for that day. Here we go!

Forever on my #MSWL: stories about women/girls/feminine folx in history. I'm personally tired of WWII, Vikings, the sixties - but there are SO MANY stories from all across history to choose from. I do a podcast about them for this very reason.
