Lauren Is Open To Queries!
Lauren is open to queries! @laurenspieller@Gabino_Iglesias Upmarket, smart, high stakes that go beyond “don’t die.” Get Out, Parasite are good movie comps, Lauren Beukes is a good book comp even though I know she’s not strictly horror, also Anita Ahlborn and Joe Hill. Honestly I just want something that grabs me and has something to SAY
#mswl: the horror & twisted spec fic I want to see in 2020
Maggie Stiefvater @mstiefvaterTo me, horror and fantasy are such wonderful siblings. They share parents: Broken Rules and Possibility. If you break the rules of the world, all kinds of things become possible, and if they are good, we call it magic, and if they're bad, we call it horror.
Hannah Allaman @hallaman13“Hell is a teenage girl”—PLEASE, someone send me a queer, feminist, campy horror novel in the vein of Jennifer’s Body, which I just watched for the first time (because that original marketing campaign, yikes) and omg. #MSWL

Katherine Harrison @KidlitKatCan someone please write a YA gothic horror novel with a simmering f/f romance about the green ribbon girl? I want it soooooo bad #MSWL twitter.com/kendrawcandraw…

Hannah Allaman @hallaman13A friend just described something as "unreliable narrator feminist horror fantasy" and turns out that's all I want in a YA novel so pls send. #mswl
Lauren’s the Worst (preorder now💁🏻♀️) @laurenspiellerSo I’ve been thinking about books I’ve loved in the last few years & realized many involve scary/spooky elements like ghosts or dark spirits and tackle issues like the “monstrousness” of female power or the darkness of grief & inherited pain, and omg I like horror?? #mswl
