If you’re a MG horror author who’s like “hm I think I’m gonna submit to that Savannah Brooks fellow, she seems cool” but don’t know what my ~spooky aesthetic~ is, I just finished reading THIRTEENS, and it nailed the location-based spooks I’m pining for. I want a spook town. #MSWL
Lauren Spieller 📖 @laurenspiellerOKAY TWITTER. What's the new YA genre trend going to be? Let's decide now so we can all start drafting our dystopian-vampire-werewolf-super hero-space novellas and get 2020 off to a banging start.
I know mythology tends to skew MG, but I’d LOVE to see more global mythology and folklore—especially in genres outside of action/adventure. I know y’all have some spooky folklore ripe for horror. And rom coms with minor deities? Guided journies through loss? Yes. All of it. #MSWL
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksI keep thinking about how badly I want to read more smart, unnerving YA horror.
I don't want gore. I want a story that makes me ask questions that I don't want an answer to. #MSWL
