Hey Twitter. Some updates to my #MSWL:

My picture book list is quite full, so I am TEMPORARILY closing to PBs. I remain open to illustrators.

I'm very eager to find: ADULT mystery, crime, domestic suspense and horror/speculative fiction.

I’m dying to find an adult novel (submission) that chains me to my computer until I’m done reading. Specifically a dark, twisty, suspenseful novel. (Recent favorites: The Push, Blacktop Wasteland, Attica Locke, Leave the World Behind) #MSWL

If you’re writing anything like THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR or HILL HOUSE (or any other adult horror) please keep me in mind! #MSWL

It's #MSWL day, and I don't make the rules, so here I go.
(Adult Fiction)

Adult #Mystery, #Thriller, #Suspense-- I love my dark mysteries and thrillers along the lines of Tana French. I will never do a #MSWL without Tana French's name. Ever. I've read a ton of Ruth Ware this year, and loved it all.
