"Eerie mystery for #YA. Unusual structure or elements. Think NIGHT FILM for a younger market." @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation/

Honestly, we have a moratorium on stories about TV shows and stories with baker or chef heroes. Anything else that fits our submission guidelines is great, though. :) #Hallmark #MSWL #amwriting #publishing #romance #mystery

A sinister murder mystery set in a quaint but pretty village. A modern Agatha Christie. #MSWL

Suspense of all types, especially psychological. Thrillers, mysteries, upmarket and literary as well as commercial. Women's fiction and anything and everything in between. #MSWL #DVPit

@Donovanesque For your mysteries, do they need to be holiday-ish?

Not at all! In fact, it's probably trickier to pull off a holiday-themed mystery. Great question -- thanks Candace! #MSWL #Hallmark #amwriting

Can anyone recommend a good cozy mystery in the vein of The Great British Baking Show? I want all the feelings / aesthetics of that show in a cozy. If not, well, #mswl.

Sharing the Hallmark Publishing submission guidelines again here: tinyurl.com/ydyckgan We adhere closely to these guidelines and are looking for books that would also be great Hallmark movies. Open to unagented submissions for now. #romance #mystery #MSWL #amwriting #amwriting

I would love a good mystery with a diverse detective that’s not set in another country... #MSWL
