But also, here are things I'm always looking for:
as an umbrella: the exploration of human resiliency via crime lens.
--indigenous/native protagonists #MMIW
--thriller/suspense set in a cabin in the woods
--serial killers
--creepy dolls and/or wells

Also: smart thrillers, unusual crime, contempt romance in the vein of M o’keefe #mswl

I'd love to see some suspense in my inbox. Domestic especially. Psychological. Maybe romantic, if it tilts more toward crime fic than romance. #MSWL

Happy #MSWL day! I acquire *only* adult fiction w mystery, suspense, & crime elements, but in those categories, I'm looking for concepts featuring:
+ Domestic susp w *fresh* hook
+ Small-town mysteries w series potential
+ Dark, twisted, macabre
+ diverse voices, own voices

HUNGRY for YA, MG & adult nonfiction. #mswl pop culture, feminist issues, true crime, pop science, parenting, business from a WOMAN'S POV, relationship/dating, things no one talks about but we SHOULD, fresh & unique & a little weird & dark (DARK TOURIST, LORE, My Favorite Murder)

I'm a true crime junkie and love crime stories with lots of twists and turns. #MSWL

Updated #MSWL on m'blog (bit.ly/2p3a5iO), but eager for a few things (beyond anything delightful):

*YA: literary sci-fi; anything science fantasy-esque
*thriller/crime: female-driven literary; intellectual puzzles/characters
*characters w/ intellectual, emotional gifts

I'd love to get more narrative nonfiction with a strong platform. Maybe something pop science-y, psychology-y, true crime, flashy history, memoir. #MSWL

I would love to see more crime fiction from writers of color and LGBT writers in the world and in my inbox. If the main characters are also POC/LGBT, even better. #MSWL

Would love to see some true crime, especially with a personal angle. Some of my favorites:
- I'LL BE GONE IN THE DARK (McNamara)
- IN COLD BLOOD (Capote)
- WHO KILLED THESE GIRLS? (Lowry) #MSWL

Remember @beatonna's Hark, A Vagrant! strips about crime solving teens? That's perpetually #mswl for me.
