Mystery

Rachel Brooks @RachMBrooks · Apr 14

In cozy mysteries, I want to see recent crimes not cold cases. I also want a protagonist-turned sleuth who is active vs. passive. Should be eager to find clues, solve the case, rather than just reacting to things around them. #MSWL

While I'm a cat lady & love to see cozy mysteries with sleuths w/ cats, or even better a cat-centered series hook (unique pet-themed businesses like a pet treat bakery, etc) I'm not anti-dog. Cats just win gold, dogs silver. Send me your cute furry friend-themed cozies #MSWL

I would love to see cozy mysteries set in a small town in the Pacific Northwest. Like a fictionalized version of Port Townsend, Friday Harbor, etc. #MSWL

Incoming thread about my #MSWL when it comes to cozy mysteries, and what I see working when I read published cozies. My @bookendslit query form--> QueryMe.Online/RachelBrooks

.@bookendslit has always been a leader in the cozy mystery market, but the one thing we are missing is more diversity in cozies. #Ownvoices authors, please bring us cozies (and mysteries of all kinds). #MSWL @RachMBrooks

Cozy mysteries! Series potential. Diverse stories welcome! I esp. love a heroine protagonist (bonus if romantic subplot developing over the series). Small or coastal town is fun too. Nothing dark, please--light tone with intriguing mystery. #MSWL @HallmarkPublish

A murder mystery party where someone actually gets murdered. Cluedo in the form of a novel. #MSWL

Hallmark Publishing submission hacks!
1. a title that sounds EXACTLY like a Hallmark movie
2. series name + book name for mystery: A++ (e.g. Library Mysteries: Checked Out for Murder)
3. clear conflict in the query
