Gothic

So enjoyed Ruth Ware’s The Death of Mrs. Westaway. I loved the Gothic atmosphere and how the author adeptly worked the tarot card element into the story to make her heroine more memorable. I would love to see some Gothic fiction as submissions. #MSWL.

Absolutely DYING to see a super atmospheric ghost story, for YA or adult in my inbox. Murder mysteries, gothic settings/themes, haunted mansions, gardens, rain, fog... all the things! With a dash of romance 😁 #mswl

#MSWL Southern Gothic is high on my list. YA or A; historical fiction/fantasy, contemporary, urban fantasy, magical realism. Bonus points for local legend and bayou storylines.
