Love to see this list of #queerhorror on @BookRiot by #SFWhitaker! bit.ly/2Tnq7Tc

Great list! I want it to be about 10x longer tho ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
*makes a blood sacrifice in hopes of having an inbox full of queer horror submissions*

Agents! Iโ€™m dying for some #ownvoices queer horror. I would love to see authors using horror as a unique lens to explore gender and sexuality. And I want it to be triumphant af.
Please give me all the LGBTQ+ protagonists. #MSWL #horror

Iโ€™m not seeing enough cannibalism stories in my inbox. I want a fresh, exciting take on cannibalism, and I want to hate myself as I eat my lunch while reading it #MSWL #horror

Kristin Temple ๐ŸŽˆ @_kristintemple · Jan 2

Ok, itโ€™s 2020. I would like to see much more queer horror, please and thank you #MSWL

Kristin Temple ๐ŸŽˆ @_kristintemple · 25 Dec 2019

Dammit all I want is a good redemption arc now #MSWL

Give me that horrible, claustrophobic feeling of not being able to trust the people closest to you. Give me a story where the protagonist has to betray the people they love because theyโ€™re not sure if the people they love can be trusted #MSWL

Contemporary horror set in NYC. Gimmie haunted apartments, office buildings, subways (can you imagine ๐Ÿ˜ฑ)! #MSWL

Kristin Temple ๐ŸŽˆ @_kristintemple · 31 Oct 2019

I want something like The Descentโ€”female-centric, claustrophobic as hell, and full of creepy monsters #MSWL

Kristin Temple ๐ŸŽˆ @_kristintemple · 31 Oct 2019

Iโ€™m from Florida so give me some spooky swamps. Something creeping beneath the water, the deafening sound of insects, that humid heat that makes it hard to breathe....#MSWL

Kristin Temple ๐ŸŽˆ @_kristintemple · 31 Oct 2019

I want smart horror protagonists. Iโ€™m tired of watching protagonists make stupid decisions that get them killed. Itโ€™s so much scarier when you do everything right, and bad stuff still happens to you! #MSWL

Kristin Temple ๐ŸŽˆ @_kristintemple · 31 Oct 2019

In celebration of Halloween, Iโ€™m gonna be posting another #MSWL thread, since Iโ€™m dying for more spooky things in my inbox!

General info: Iโ€™m not currently accepting unagented submissions. My priority is adult horror for @TorNightfire, but I love YA horror too ๐Ÿ‘ป

Kristin Temple ๐ŸŽˆ @_kristintemple · 30 Oct 2019

Itโ€™s almost Halloween and all I want is to read about some spooky woods #mswl

Kristin Temple ๐ŸŽˆ @_kristintemple · 24 Sep 2019

Honestly gimmie anything thatโ€™s as ridiculous, funny, and charming as Dirk Gentlyโ€™s Holistic Detective Agency #MSWL

Kristin Temple ๐ŸŽˆ @_kristintemple · 24 Sep 2019

It may seem like I only like really dark stuff, but my favorite kind of horror is ultimately hopeful. I want to see people face their fears and win. Make impossible choices and survive. Rescue each other and rescue themselves. #MSWL

Kristin Temple ๐ŸŽˆ @_kristintemple · 24 Sep 2019

Iโ€™d love to see more/better mental illness rep in horror. As an anxious person, Iโ€™d particularly kill to see protagonists dealing with panic attacks and anxiety while having to fight for their lives.

Hiding from a monster? Better hope you donโ€™t start hyperventilating ๐Ÿ™ƒ #MSWL

Replying to @_kristintemple

I'd sell my soul for a post-apocalyptic thriller/horror novel where the protagonist (or a POV character) breaks their glasses and has to survive without them #MSWL
