Since we're in October, it's time for me to request a novel like Scream or I Know What You Did Last Summer. Gimme some classic 90s teen horror movies, please! #MSWL

I saw Psycho on the big screen tonight and it makes me think 1: I want more human horror and 2: I also want unhealthy mother son relationship books. Demons I get. People are crazy. #MSWL #WishlistWednesday

#MSWL horror please! Think the creepy, shadowy, social horrors. Fav's include THE WINTER PEOPLE or THE LONEY or ROSEMARY'S BABY or THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE or A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS and lots of Mr. King, of course. But not so much the slasher fic kind.

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · Oct 3

So in light of my recent October-themed tweets, please do send me all your creepy, eerie, scary and strange YA and MG horror, mystery and thrillers. I am 100% in the mood for a good scare and all thing that go bump in the night! #MSWL

#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.

Tis the season to be spooky, right?

Sooo looking for a good horror manuscript to keep me awake at night!

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!

Rena Bunder Rossner @renarossner · Sep 13

Ask @ryandouglassw, @KatyaDeBecerra, @LizParkerWrites and @2furiosa - I like my YA dark. Horror, dark fantasy, paranormal, ghosts, vampires, werewolves, spirits. Scare me and you’ll win my heart. #MSWL MG, YA, and Adult.

Good morning! It's #MSWL day!

Agents + editors will be tweeting what they wish they had in their inboxes.

Writers can take note of which agents may be a good fit, and then submit work traditionally.

Need any help? @kkhendin and I are standing by!

I've been pretty vocal in the past week about what I'm looking for, but I'll say it again with the #MSWL tag!

- Thrillers! 😳 (Adult & YA)
- Horror! 😰 (Adult & YA)
- Contemporary YA 😎
- Speculative 🤔😍 (YA & adult)
- Fantasy ⚔️🔮🛡🐉(MG/YA/adult)
- Hilarious MG 😂

Jordan Hamessley @thejordache · Sep 12

I tweet out #MSWL thoughts pretty regularly so you can always search those. That said, my list is pretty full of contemporary YA right now. I'd love a great YA thriller or horror novel to add to my list!

I love the idea of #MSWL day but I'm rarely looking for a very specific concept or type of book. I just want the book to be yours and yours alone. To be so specific you can see the whole world in its details. That said, here are a few things that are very top of mind for me:

Contemporary horror/thriller focused on the experiences of POCs. We live harrowing lives and ones that see the world from a different angle. Film/tv has done a great job of catching up to representing those experiences. I want more of it in books. #MSWL
