Miscellaneous things I’d love in my inbox? 📥
• horror pied piper reimagining!
• queer Dorian Gray
• queer MG 💚
• sex-positive, body positive YA rom-coms
• BIPOC witches, seers, and mediums
• BIPOC in and writing crime fiction & speculative fic
• isolated thrillers
In speculative fiction (light sci-fi, horror, fantasy), I need worlds that I can settle into easily.
Fresh takes on classic tropes, dynamic characters, unique magic systems, atmospheric writing & undeniably high stakes ✨Think: R.F. Kuang, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Rory Power
I’d love to see more crime fiction! 🔪🖤
If it reads like a true crime doc or headline, I’m into it. 🚫 police, gov’t officials, detectives (past or present).
I also love speculative twists and psychological elements like Riley Sager, Vera Kurian, & Tiffany D. Jackson!
I want to concentrate on building my adult list.
Send me your romances, contemporaries, grounded fantasies, historical fiction (feeling the 1920s these days), thrillers/mysteries, speculative, and contemporary stories.
Oh, and horror! But nuanced horror. #MSWL.
Guys, although I removed it from my #MSWL, I still love reading about cults and secret societies. The genre really doesn't matter: thriller, contemporary, speculative, etc.
Have fun with it, but also please keep sending 🙃
OK, so I just updated my #MSWL.
And just as a warning, y'all....it's long.
I'm not sure if it is more or less helpful now...
