(1) Bless you, Internet, for making this happen. Hats off to all who tracked info down on Veneida

(2) I'm sure I'm not the first one to say this, but I NEED this as a book #MSWL

Guys, idk if this exists outside my brain, but I would really REALLY love a ensemble novel (or narr NF) about a group of true crime enthusiasts on Reddit hunting a killer. Bonus points for intersectional feminism or YA

I'll be tweeting out my "Most Wanted" for Day 1 of #DVPit shortly. If you have something that fits bill, please don't hesitate to @ me your pitch! twitter.com/whitleyabell/s…

For today's #DVPit #MSWL, I'm especially seeking:
- Novels in Verse
- Magical realism
- Diverse ensemble casts
- Psychological Suspense
- WITCHES, but not just fantasy
- Historical or Historical AU (think AND I DARKEN)
- INTERSECTIONALITY bc damn, we need to get better about that

Same, friends. Would love a killer contemporary voice! #mswl twitter.com/laurenspieller…

I'm sure you can guess what I'm going to say I initially read this as, but just in case...

Killer voice + a contemporary story worthy of true crime coverage, s'il vous plaît

All this vampire talk has been fun, but let's not forget what's really important... I'm still waiting for my Bonnie & Clyde + Catch Me If You Can YA

I'm just gonna say... if you send me vampires, they (or their slayers) better be dark bitches on a mission. No mopey sparkles or self-indulgent demigods, please #MSWL twitter.com/rrschaeffer/st…

I mean, you know me. Fresh spins on horror and female rage are my jam.

And, of course, I'm down for a horror/comedy, because duh! Like VAMPS. LIFE AFTER BETH, but with vampires. Or, JAWBREAKERS, but with vampires. Or SANTA CLARITA DIET... well, you get the point #MSWL

Rebecca Schaeffer @rrschaeffer

I just scrolled through my feed and started seeing editors and agents asking for vampires and please

Please let this happen

Please bring back vampires

Last night I dreamt that I was pitching a book where the comps were Mary Shelley, The Yellow Wallpaper, and Fight Club and damnit, why couldn't that have been real life #MSWL

Having been the kid who always kinda half-believed I was actually a miswired robot or an alien or a changling instead of human—oh hi signs of my MI as a child—I'd love a literary MG along the lines of Kesha's SPACESHIP. Surrealism a-okay 😉🤖👾 #MSWL
