And if you read to the end (and don't hate me now), #MSWL Dynamic adult sci fi & fantasy that breaks the mold, vivid settings, powerful stakes, YA #SFF, diversity across race, gender/sexuality, neurodivergence, and mythologies I've never seen before.
Polished per above, please

#MSWL Fantasy and historical fiction about female characters engaging in traditionally-feminine pastimes. Give me seamstresses breaking curses, wetnurses playing politics, noblewomen arranging marriages for their kids

In #YA and #Adult I'd love to see magical realism (a recent fave is All The Birds in the Sky) as well as historical fantasy that throws me into an unexpected time. I have a weakness for anything Victorian or Jane Austen. Lastly: Assassins. Anything with assassins #MSWL

#mswl Zorro retelling, but female. She can be known as Zorra, or she's known as Zorro and the world has no idea she's actually female. I don't care. I am in need of a Zorro story, but female 🔥⚔️🦊

I would love to see some thriller / psych suspense / domestic suspense projects that DON'T feature a damaged / alcoholic / unreliable female narrator. Where's my ordinary woman who happens to get swept up in something extraordinary? #mswl

For the love of my dark, evil, magical heart, please send me witch books--bitchy witches, selfish witches, selfless witches, kind witches, amoral witches, angry witches. ALL THE WITCHES!!! #MSWL

#MSWL I don’t usually ask for thrillers but I’d like one where a detective or FBI agent purchases a used computer at a local junk shop & finds disturbing images on it—including a photograph of a well-known missing person, someone he personally knows. And she may still be alive.
