#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.

#MSWL I would love a story about viruses (as long as it's not coronavirus- I need some escapism).

I would also love a book based around a volcanic eruption or another natural disaster. But with the focus on disaster management and the action/adventure side of things.

I am slightly obsessed with monster stories (especially if they have giant sharks or squids). Bonus points for romance in your books. And stories set in extreme environments such as the arctic, jungle, caves, ocean, and mountains.
