Tara Gilbert ✨ Closed To Queries
tara 💫 open to queries 🎉 @Literary_TaraI had a dream where we went to this old house where an old lady lived, and she gave off creepy vibes that weren't natural. So after we all were assigned our rooms and everyone was asleep I went searching. There was a part of the house that was off limits. It was familiar to me...
My #2 #mswl queer horror stories in MG, YA, and adult. Horror in all shapes and sizes. I'm usually not a slasher or body horror person, though. I like psychological and supernatural, usually. Maybe something where the environment is the antagonist. Also... twitter.com/Literary_Tara/…
T.S. Ferguson, but socially distant @TeeEssHi I’m a gay editor and I love YA horror. I will never ask you to pull your horror punches or be less gay. Please write these and have your agents sub to me! twitter.com/brooksbenjamin…
Hi! I'm a queer agent and I want all the queer horror. Please thanks. #mswl
Kristin Temple 🎈 @_kristintempleAgents, please know I’m absolutely ravenous for queer adult #horror for @TorNightfire. Like, foaming at the mouth, clawing at the walls, wailing at the moon, etc. etc. #MSWL twitter.com/garnetmorgue/s…
Horror, queer and POC, will be top of my #mswl when I open in a couple weeks!
Before I close for queries tomorrow, I wanted to get out a #mswl of what I really want to see in my inbox.
- Authors of underrepresented communities (POC, LGBTQIA+, body, neuro, disabled)
- Fat girl stories where their weight is not the plot.
- MG and YA horror.
I'd also love more spooky/horror MG. Give me fantastic monsters, nature-based villains (like a forest or swamp), and something weird and twisty. I'll take it in YA too. #mswl
For Middle Grade, I am desperate for:
- Horror that would even make adults squirm.
- Themes with puzzles and riddles.
- Group of kids going on adventures in their hometown.
- Graphic novels (in YA too)!

Tara 🏳️🌈📖🔮 @Literary_TaraY'all, are vampires coming back?
Ok, so I was a huge vampire person when I was younger. I'm kind of over vampires, but I know they are coming back, so #mswl if you have super evil vampires I'll take a look! Scary horror vampires! Or how about two evil vampires who try to kill each other and then fall in love?
SUPER SPECIFIC HORROR IDEA. Has anyone ever seen Thirteen Ghosts? A super cheesy movie about people that get stuck in a house full of 13 serial killer ghosts. I LOVE IT. I want a YA based on it. #mswl
