Goals for 2019 inspired by @NaomisLitPix & @SoCalledYALife
- Stop using "I think" so much
- Help the Agents of @bookendslit achieve their goals
- Rep more psychl suspense & women's fiction--especially diverse & own voices to my list. #MSWL
I'll just add this to my #MSWL since it sounds like my kind of #mystery #thriller #suspense, or maybe even quirky #romance or #wf. --> Human heart prompts Southwest flight to return to Seattle apnews.com/3e2217bb190c49…
This is a #MSWL I like to put out there every now and then. I want an upmarket women’s fiction where a family member is on trial for murder and the protagonist(s) don’t know whether he did it or not. I want to see the meat of the emotions in that unthinkable situation.
Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessicaAs the year comes to an end and queries slow I start to think about what I'd like to see come 2019. #MSWL.
I'm still looking for domestic suspense and thrillers, aka psychological suspense. I'd especially like stories featuring women in situations that aren't classic husband/wife stories. #MSWL
Crooked Lane Books @crookedlanebks4 women will invent time travel.
3 will make their mark on history.
2 will do anything to be remembered.
1 will not survive.
Perfect for fans of Naomi Alderman's THE POWER and Margot Lee Shetterly’s HIDDEN FIGURES comes a mind-bending, time-travel debut! #ewgc #libraryreads pic.twitter.com/dvi67n1OFK

I'm particularly keen to find some gripping psychological thrillers, crime and suspense novels. I'd also love to find some upmarket or moving women's fiction, and some book club fiction! #pitmad #MSWL
Ellen Press @ellen_press@thewhalenagency @louisesbay I’m trying to find your wish list on #mswl, but your name is not coming up.
Just a reminder TWA is open to submissions and my #MSWL includes fiction of any kind, diverse characters, strong women. Horror, crime and thrillers. Watching Haunting of Hill House and reading my submissions from #PitDark has energized me!
ZR/Zabé Ellor @ZREllorI just want a grimdark fantasy novel about a bunch of middle-aged women defending a castle under siege while their loser husbands are at war
"Multi POV, time slip or dual past/present narrative structure women’s fiction, historical, domestic suspense, or upmarket like THE ALICE NETWORK, THE SUBWAY GIRLS." @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
NYT Obituaries @NYTObitsWomen have cleared many barriers in sports. But few exploits are as stunning — and shrouded in mystery — as the day Jackie Mitchell struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. nyti.ms/2DsFeVN
#MSWL I know I've been tweeting a lot about #YA & #MG projects, but I'm still looking for some really fabulous #WF. High concept, great voice, accessible writing. Wow me with something I haven't seen before.
"I’ve been fascinated by this actual event for a decade. Looking for a historical women’s fiction/book club book about garment district’s 1911 shirtwaist fire tragedy." @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
These are dark times. So for distraction & entertainment I need suspense to lose myself in, or stories that make me laugh and feel. So give me loads of suspense for mysteries, and rom coms with a twist for Women's Fiction, YA and MG. #MSWL
