My current #MSWL:
- toxic female friendships
- spooky suspense (maybe w/ supernatural/horror bent)
- suspense featuring cults and witches (a la, THE CRAFT)
- family dysfunction + messed up secrets
- female serial killers

A new award for thrillers in which gratuitous violence against women is NOT used a plot device? Um, #MSWL forever. #writingtips #pubtips #staunchbookprize
