Ghost

I want a book about the seances and ghosts featuring famous people of the early 20th century who were into that stuff, like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Carl Jung. #MSWL

I'm too lazy to search for it but the story about the ghost in the grocery store. I want it. #MSWL

#MSWL:

A great ghost/haunted house story (adult).

I accept:
-Adult fantasy, #histfic, mystery, thriller, horror
Not into gore or books where kids are the victims; I don’t rep kidlit.

Today's #MSWL:
I'd love a literary mystery. Some twisty suspense that feels *new* and avoids the girl-gone-missing trope (or turns it on its head).
More #ownvoices, please!
HORROR/a fresh ghost story.
Yr big ensemble cast that will make me cry. Make me cry, dammit! 🤗

YA Horror ghost stories are life. If it doesn’t make your skin crawl while writing it, I don’t want it. #MSWL #paranormalactivity

We've read stories about a medium helping spirits cross over. What if we're in the spirit's POV as he tries to find a medium & convince her to help? I'd love to see something like this in MG or YA. Send query & 1st 5 pages to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL

#authors, it feels like fall (in the mornings) and I’m craving a great ghost story! Think James Herbert rather than Alice Sebold. If you have one, query me! #mswl

Ask @ryandouglassw, @KatyaDeBecerra, @LizParkerWrites and @2furiosa - I like my YA dark. Horror, dark fantasy, paranormal, ghosts, vampires, werewolves, spirits. Scare me and you’ll win my heart. #MSWL MG, YA, and Adult.

#MSWL Still looking for a creepy MG ghost story. One of my favorite books as a kid was THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS*, by John Bellairs. Would love to find a modern day haunted house MG.

(*The illustration of the headlights still keeps me up at night. Eep!)

- obscure legends (think the Grimm or Supernatural tv shows)
- Swamp monsters
