What's the opposite of #MSWL ? Anti-MSWL? One of mine is describing women's reactions as hysterical. It's dated and denigrating. Enough said.

Some #MSWL favorites (for mystery, suspense, crime fic): serial killer POVs, serial killers in general, female serial killers 🔪🔪🔪

Chelsey Emmelhainz @CKEmmelhainz · Sep 12

I want an adult, female-driven revenge story/psychological suspense... #mswl

Chelsey Emmelhainz @CKEmmelhainz · Sep 12

#MSWL Your darkest adult suspense novels! Fav topics: family secrets, coming of age, toxic friendships. The twistier, the better!

And of course, an extra big call for #DV #ownvoices subs in these areas! #MSWL https://t.co/QsLqT4abKP

Guys, I need more witches in my life and my fiction (and maybe nonfiction?) Who's got a super atmospheric literary witchy book for me? #MSWL

I still want witches, guys. Witches + suspense/murder/crime. Lets see it! #MSWL https://t.co/jQEdiGf0Mt

New #MSWL : mystery/crime/suspense involving cannibalism a la Hannibal 🍖

The Midwife of Words @CKEmmelhainz · May 15

And last (perpetual #mswl ), send me LGBTQ bks w plots NOT centered on homophobia/coming out. Queer folks as protags of all kinds of stories!

#mswl for me too! https://t.co/84npoJEPMw

Prediction for agents and editors: We're about to see a new surge of dystopian hitting our boxes. Make sure you're well-provisioned.

I'm in. I love me some good adult dystopian #mswl https://t.co/0VciEkCRR0

Chelsey Emmelhainz @CKEmmelhainz · Jan 19

#MSWL Looking for the next SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS for adults! Creepy, dark, gothic, and writing that takes risks!

I want to see this, too! #mswl #amwriting https://t.co/cyyPtH6J4s

Because I'm full of #MSWL today, here's another: A body positive narrative nonfiction/memoir/essay collection, a la the fab @JessNotJazz
