I'm also a speculative fiction (set in the contemporary world) and magical realism junkie, so dystopian elements, accessible science, and lite, real-world fantasy elements can catch my eye, too #mswl

I'll always like the darker side of fiction, so if your WF or M/S/T has supernatural or horror elements or features creepy twins, weird siblings, cults, serial killers or anything giving it a bit more BITE... I'm your girl #mswl

I like my fiction to be page-turning, propulsive, and unputdownable--no matter the genre--so send me your race-to-the-finish reads #mswl

This #MSWL day is special because @AlcovePress just launched which means I'm now looking for women's fiction in addition to mystery, suspense and thrillers for @crookedlanebks.

New #MSWL: adult suspense novel featuring a pregnant protagonist

πŸŽƒ Chelsey Emmel-haunts πŸ‘» @CKEmmelhainz · Jan 12

Okay so The Descent has everything on my #MSWL for 2019: complicated, dark female friendships, survival, suspense, and a dash of the supernatural. *grabby hands*

Doing title research led me to this amazing #MSWL tidbit. Who's gonna write me a mystery with "the perfect murder weapon"? curiosity.com/topics/the-tox…

You know what I want to see in a mystery series? TWISTER. I want a storm-chaser mystery series minus the weird love triangle. #MSWL

Also I saw this gif and my brain IMMEDIATELY started playing the "chase" music from the movie. Guess what I'm watching this weekend.
