#mswl I am really into my gothic horror at the moment. Especially if you can comp Crimson Peak, Nothing but Blackened Teeth, or Dracula.

The Cottage in the Wildwood @cottageinwood

The energy I am bringing to tomorrows job interview: pic.twitter.com/eDX6SPney4

This vibe is a definite #mswl

It gives Maleficent/ Charlize Theron in Snow White and the Huntsman vibes and I am here for them. Give me a fantasy from the POV of an evil queen where the beautiful princess is just annoying and does not win the hearts of the people/ love interest.

#MSWL Still would love a book featuring a volcano/ natural disasters.

Would also accept secret underground volcanic lairs. With or without sharks in pools. With is better though. (But this may be a bit too specific).

#mswl I would really like some old haunted mansions style ghost stories. Particularly thinking James Herbert or Cassandra Khaw's Nothing but Blackened Teeth. The Haunted Mansion bit is key though. I want atmosphere.

Feel free to email rather than wait for me to open to queries.

#mswl vampires but Dracula rather than Twilight.

Think old, gothic, terrifying, and I'd be happy with three hot vampire women in it as well.

I am probably going to open back up to queries before the New Year but I am going to narrow the genres I'm looking for this time. So please consider this my #mswl list (which I will update).

I will be opening to Action & Adventures.

Books set in extreme environments.

#MSWL A thriller set in an isolated town. If it is snowed in, or there is a flood or storm coming, even better.
