I'd love to see ghost stories! I may be a bit more selective here, as I'm lucky to have a gorgeous ghost story on my list (hi again, @k_dishmon !!), but feel free to try me.

Note that I’m not a fit for other paranormal characters ( werewolves, vampires, zombies, faeries, etc.).

I love a speculative twist and will always be in for a bit of magic. I’m looking for things like Addie Larue, Jane the Virgin, and Extraordinary. I also love a non-horror ghost story, where the ghosts have larger meaning. Give me Hill House and Watch Over Me.

One last particular spooky #MSWL : A Japanese horror featuring Japanese ghosts / folklore from a Japanese author would be AMAZING. If you can comp to a Chilla's Art game, I would be so happy. OR a horror centered around video games would be *chef's kiss*

For a super detailed #MSWL check out my website: careyblankenshipkramer.com/agenting.html. Let's start with a really good, ol' fashioned haunted house story from a BIPOC author. Kidlit or adult! Also, where are my MG kiddos being chased by ghosts? I love those and want to see more in my inbox!

My main jam is thrillers, so I’d love to see more in this area. This includes horror (supernatural horror, not slasher horror), mystery, suspense, domestic thriller, psychological, etc. Fast-paced, high tension, high stakes, please! Ghosts & haunted houses are a huge draw for me.

I would really just love some romance with a spec twist in my inbox right now (adult or YA, I'm not picky) -- give me your ghost hunters falling for each other, your vampire crushes, your love spells gone wrong. #MSWL

5. When it comes to Upper MG, I enjoy adventures with pirates, witches, ghosts, animals that can communicate, an underlying moral lesson learned by the main character, strong friendships, and stories of courage, overcoming obstacles, or shining in the face of adversity.

2. Fantasy involving ghosts, witches, etc. Vampires are ok but they need to be human-friendly like ADOW. (I *adore* ADOW!). Historical fantasy like ADDIE LARUE. With historical fiction, I prefer pre-20th century.

Fall is here, and I am excited to find something cozy. In particular, I'd love to read a cozy romantasy set in our world, or maybe a gripping, atmospheric mystery with a fantastic voice. I'm also into gothic stories that feature ghosts/hauntings, vampires, or curses! #mswl

I love and devour everything by Simone St. James (aka crime / thrillers with a paranormal twist), so if you can comp to her even slightly, SOLD. I adore a good haunted house story with terrifying, angry ghosts. Loved MEXICAN GOTHIC by Silvia Moreno-Garcia recently. #MSWL

Flowing into September, here's what I would LOVE to see in my inbox: HORROR!!!! It's spooky time folks, and horror is probably my favorite genre. Let's see if we can tick that genre way up, especially from POC & queer writers. Ghosts are my absolute favorite. #MSWL

#MSWL An MG ghost story that leans heavily into the fun and funny and not the scary. While I'm always open to MG horror, I'm looking not so much for chills in this wishlist item.
