Suspense

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 1d

I would love to see some thriller / psych suspense / domestic suspense projects that DON'T feature a damaged / alcoholic / unreliable female narrator. Where's my ordinary woman who happens to get swept up in something extraordinary? #mswl

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

But also, here are things I'm always looking for:
as an umbrella: the exploration of human resiliency via crime lens.
--indigenous/native protagonists #MMIW
--thriller/suspense set in a cabin in the woods
--serial killers
--creepy dolls and/or wells

Oooh #MSWL day! Some random things I’d love to see: a modern day VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, a utopian YA, GHOSTED w/ millennial age characters or in YA, psychological suspense that borrows from the news/2018 & a speculative thriller.

Meredith Bernstein @mgoodbern · Sep 12

As it’s #MSWL day, I’d like to find several things in my inbox: hypnotic family saga(multigenerational ); psychological suspense with wit and insight; love story with big emotional twists. And any truly platform driven non-fiction. Send it!!

still on adult romance:
*romantic suspense - any kind
*serious or fun, dark theme or light
*paranormal or sci-fi element is ok too
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp @lydia_sharp · Sep 12

still on NA:
more queer romance please and thanks
more trans and genderqueer characters
in contemp, PNR, UF, RS, SF, everything
#MSWL

Lydia Sharp @lydia_sharp · Sep 12

okay moving on to NA now:
*romantic suspense
*fun RS with witty, flirty banter
*adventure-y RS that goes to interesting places
*a light paranormal or sci-fi element is ok but emphasis on "light"
*must be firmly NA - characters still in training or just finished

#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).

A little creepiness/paranormal in suspense may be OK, just so the reader can decide what's what. Like Carol Goodman, Sarah Pinborough, S.K. Tremayne. #MSWL

Michelle Richter📚 @Michrichter1 · Sep 12

I'd love to see some suspense in my inbox. Domestic especially. Psychological. Maybe romantic, if it tilts more toward crime fic than romance. #MSWL

+ Domestic susp w *fresh* hook
