Gothic

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · Oct 2

#MSWL Since it's October, I would love something gothic and creepy, a dark fantasy, or a historical in #YA or #A. Or something like Into the Drowning Deep. Loved that anticipation of waiting to discover the truth followed by horror.

Ooh, #mswl day! Right now I’m craving great SF/horror mashups, general dark horror, PI mysteries, gothic suspense, and dark thrillers - YA & adult! Diverse voices always a plus!

Top of my #MSWL: women's fiction and romance by/about underrepresented voices. Contemporary. Historical. Contemporary or historical with a magical element. Grounded SF. Romcoms. Happy books. Also, maybe a big, sweeping gothic romance?

#MSWL American Horror Story: Coven...but good. Gothic boarding schools, empowered women, clash of ideals, exploration of how history and culture shapes magic

Gothic supernatural horror with the tragic beauty of CRIMSON PEAK & the romanticism of JANE EYRE. Bonus points for tragic staring off into the bogs #mswl

Melissa Danaczko @mad2034 · Sep 12

Gothic atmospheres like Sarah Waters, Thirteenth Tale, What Should Be Wild #mswl

Rosie 🖤 @RosalieCJonker · Sep 12

Sarah Waters-y gothic fiction, and/or that "regional gothic" tumblr meme from like a year ago #MSWL

#MSWL Would love to see more dark, atmospheric Southern Gothics in my inbox.

Now that I’m back open to queries here’s a bit of my #MSWL - YA near future Sci Fi, atmospheric Southern Gothic, and witches. All the witches. #MG #YA #diversevoices #ownvoices

If pumpkin spice lattes are back, autumn must be right around the corner, which means I'm jumping on the spooky reads bandwagon. Send me your upmarket, creepy stories: witches, ghosts, other things that go bump in the night. How about a gothic romance, you say? Yes! #mswl

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.
