Jacqui Lipton @Jacqui_LiptonWho wants to jump in next with a #mswl? @LaneHeymont ? (And, authors, remember you can ask any of us questions and feel free to tag any of us you want to answer.)
What am I looking for? Horror, horror, HORROR. Obviously. Also, thriller, suspense, and nonfiction by experts in their fields. So let’s dive in a little more a #MSWL 🧵
WHITE HORSE? Missing and Murdered Indigenous People Crisis. Awful father disappears his own daughter and no bothers to investigate. Not even her friends or family. The monster? The crisis itself.
Okay, that’s it for horror. Hope it’s help.
Now onto nonfiction!
Sure, there were monsters but only monsters driven by humanity’s own misdeeds. There would be no horror in ALL THE WHITE SPACES without the sins and guilt those explorers brought with them. Even the fact they traveled there showed their dark desires.
I’ve been feeling survival horror in the vein of ALL THE WHITE SPACES. Give me isolation, hauntings, nature vs humanity, cli-fi, upmarket. Think EVENT HORIZON without the sci-fi. IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS is another good one. Also, horror from marginalized voices: #mswl
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeYay for @TheTobiasAgency #mswl day. I rep all things #kidlit and right now I am dying for a Ren Faire book or cosplay book. Passing the baton to @LaneHeymont for his MSWL twitter.com/KellyDHouse/st…
My current #MSWL: character-driven horror (Lovecraftian, GET OUT, A God in the Shed), SFF w/ unique non-western European settings, mysteries, thrillers, women's and lit. fiction crossovers (romance or suspense), all romance (especially romantic suspense). #Querytips #FictionList
Chelsey Emmelhainz @CKEmmelhainzI love love love unique horror with real-world elements, esp if it's atmospheric! Give me a new, literary twist on an old terror... #MSWL
