Mystery

Amber Caraveo 🐯 @AmberCaraveo · Sep 14

Am I too late for #MSWL Day? I’m looking for laugh-out-loud MG with a great ‘voicey’ protagonist! Also fab twisty mysteries in MG. And a swoony romance/love story in YA, especially (but not exclusively) LGBTQIA please! See my profile & sub guidelines at skylark-literary.com

Becky LeJeune @BeckyLeJeune · Sep 13

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!

#MSWL I'm looking for something I've never seen before primarily adult or YA in fantasy, romance, historical, suspense, mystery #ownvoices

Brenna English-Loeb @benglishhh · Sep 12

Please send me sci-fi/fantasy/mystery/thrillers, ya or adult, especially those that are character driven or investigate genre tropes
I’m also a sucker for anything with a strong environment, either literally or figuratively

Seeking: Adult: suspense/thrillers, fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary romance, rom-com, & mysteries. YA: suspense/ thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy, horror, mysteries, historical, & contemporary. MG: Sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary, adventure, mysteries, horror, & humor. #diversity #MSWL

I would be very here for a middle grade mystery set entirely on a train, with the protagonists traveling as unaccompanied minors cross-country. Whether or not the train's magical. . . *shrug* #MSWL

Lydia Sharp @lydia_sharp · Sep 12

still on YA:
*mystery/thrillers w/ atypical narrative structure and/or mixed media formats
*paranormal that feels fresh
*adventure-driven stories
*anything with a high-stakes plot
*fairytale retellings that feel fresh
*smart contemporary that makes me laugh and cry

A solid #YA or #MG mystery is everything. I really don't want to see the ending coming! But even with a good twist, it HAS to be believable. #MSWL

Chelsey Emmelhainz @CKEmmelhainz · Sep 12

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

I would LOVE a super atmospheric historical story featuring a mystery or an element of the paranormal or fantastical. Think The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd #mswl

Hannah Fergesen @HannahFergesen · Sep 12

I want horror, mystery, and suspense across all categories. Give me serial killers. Give me unreliable narrators. Give me the Satanic Panic. Give me the weird shit. I love dark stories that are challenging and unexpected. #MSWL

Kortney Price @kortney_price · Sep 12

I'd love to see a gritty or dark YA thriller/suspense/mystery/contemporary story. #mswl

Kortney Price @kortney_price · Sep 12

Another MG #mswl (I'll get to YA in a bit) is a clever mystery with lots of moving pieces. Think Westing Game by Ellen Raskin or Clue 🔎

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Sep 12

Lastly in mystery, I'd love to see some diverse cozies land in my inbox. There aren't nearly enough of them, please send more! #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Sep 12

In mystery, I'm a sucker for stories where the setting is inseparable from the plot / characters. What Attica Locke does in BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD and Jane Harper does in the Aaron Falk books, exceptional. #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Sep 12

Time for some #mswl tweets! Here are just some of the things I'm looking for right now.

In general, I rep adult mystery, romance, women's fiction, some SF/F, and upmarket projects, and love to see historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction.
