October means Halloween, which means all things scary. #MSWL for horror.

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 2 Oct 2017

I'm putting out a #MSWL for a book that makes me feel the same way I do every time I hear the first five chords of "Free Fallin."

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 1 Oct 2017

Happy October! In light of the season, I'm putting out a #MSWL for a book about the history of the all-time great movie monsters

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 13 Sep 2017

Today is apparently #RoaldDahlDay. To celebrate it, send me your MG stories of ordinary kids thrust into extraordinary situations. #MSWL

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 12 Sep 2017

#MSWL MG clues, puzzles, treasure hunts, preferably with a compelling hook.

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 12 Sep 2017

#MSWL female villains - serial killers, monsters, kidnappers, evil principals of boarding schools, you name it.

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 12 Sep 2017

#MSWL MG adventure, horror, or grounded sci-fi (no aliens or distant planets) geared towards boys.

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 12 Sep 2017

#mswl mystery and thriller that is completely devoid of terrorists, former special ops, government coverups, politics, and boozing loners

Admit one.....

You stumble across this in the woods. You have no clue how it got there. You decide to walk through. Where do you come out? #MSWL

Abandoned Places @ABAND0NEDPLACES

Are you brave enough to spend a night in the 19 century Buffalo State Asylum.

#MSWL for a book about a group of kids who decide to do this - and quickly realize they should have turned back when they had the chance.

Abandoned Places @ABAND0NEDPLACES

but together…

Like what happened here? Who owned these vans? How come they never came back? Who discovered them years later? #MSWL

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 10 Jul 2017

The @ABAND0NEDPLACES Twitter account is just one awesome horror novel idea after another. #MSWL

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 29 Jun 2017

Happy to say that I read a MS last night that, for the first time in a long time, legit gave me a nightmare. More horror please! #MSWL

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 16 Jun 2017

#MSWL a book about Seattle and the rise of the grunge rock/alternative music scene in the early 90s

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 14 Jun 2017

Time for my annual summertime #MSWL about the making, and cultural significance of, the movie Jaws.

Alec Shane @alecdshane · 14 Jun 2017

#MSWL the definitive biography of the life and times of Rodney Dangerfield.
