Since it's still January, time for an updated 2024 #MSWL ! I'm currently really on the lookout for psychological thriller (a la Riley Sager), mysteries (cozy and whodunnits please), and light horror (nothing too gory, I want to sleep at night). Dark academia a plus as well!

For cozy mysteries, I’m usually looking for a bookstore or tea shop setting, or other general cozy feels here. I like to see a well rounded community that feels every bit a part of the story as the protagonist.

I acquire a few genres between our two imprints, but to break it down:

Crooked Lane:
thrillers, historical mysteries, cozy mysteries, and horror.

Alcove Press:
historical fiction, magical realism, speculative fiction, romcoms, bookclub fiction, and romantasy.

Future #MSWL & QM update:
I have less than 40 undecided queries/submissions. I plan to reopen mid-late January to a few genres. This info is not on my website or MSWL page yet— it’s just a head’s up and I hope it’s helpful!

✨ ADULT FICTION✨
• contemporary romance - think Emily Henry but low spice or Melissa Ferguson
• upmarket / book club
• cozy mysteries

✨ NONFICTION✨
- same as what’s on website -

✨ KIDLIT ✨
• PB/MG/YA - classic-style with a literary bent. Secret Garden. Bridge to Terabithia. Winnie-the-Pooh.
• PB - humorous character-driven series

‼️Not looking for SEL or rhyme.‼️

I'm hoping for cozy mystery set outside the US and/or diverse. I am open to all Adult Mystery now, but I prefer locked door, cozy, or more traditional mystery over crime stories.
