Can I have a horror novel about a young girl who carries around a doll (like a modern day American girl doll type doll - not old school creepy). And wherever she goes, bad things happen—but is it the girl or the doll? #MSWL SCARE ME. MAKE ME QUESTION THINGS.

Horror & horror. All types & ages (mg, ya, adult). Could be super scary. Psychological. Thriller. Mystery. Warm Bodies-esque. Odd Thomas-esque. Any way you slice it. #MSWL

I’m currently closed to queries but I firmly #MSWL this for when I open. Family controlled (or puppet-ed) by (haunted, cursed maybe) mice figurines who hide their very real presence from most but are very active in a super bad way with those they manipulate. #horror

#MSWL “I don’t think people understand how much kids like horror right now.” Quote from my 13yo son. So send me #YA horror pls. #MG horror is going strong now (head nods at @saskwriter). YA needs to make a big shelf—these kids are growing up. I *think* it could be the next trend.

#MSWL Thinking about the dichotomy of things & I want a near-future DYSTOPIAN where nothing is cleaned up & pretty. Want the horror (w/out major gore) of floods, earthquakes, death etc w/the thread of hope. Both pain & beauty. Give it to me...would love this with a literary feel.
