I'd be interested in a new take on the historical Nellie Bly-esque mystery series, y'all... #mswl

My latest suspense/mystery #MSWL:
+Domestic suspense with a fresh commercial hook
+Small-town mysteries with series potential, female protags
+magical realism (set in known world), spec fic, horror, supernatural elements
+WHERE MY WITCHES AT

My current #MSWL:
- toxic female friendships
- spooky suspense (maybe w/ supernatural/horror bent)
- suspense featuring cults and witches (a la, THE CRAFT)
- family dysfunction + messed up secrets
- female serial killers

A new award for thrillers in which gratuitous violence against women is NOT used a plot device? Um, #MSWL forever. #writingtips #pubtips #staunchbookprize staunchbookprize.com/about-2/
