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

#MSWL An intersectional group of gfs (h.s.? middle?) organize to save the world (from climate change? patriarchy? prejudice? politics? all?) but stumble on and use their diverse intelligence, wit, and wisdom to solve all sorts of mysteries on the road to social justice.

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
