Ghost

Stephanie Delman @imaginarysmd · Feb 4

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.

Ok! Supernatural creatures #MSWL:

- super gross/scary mermaids or sirens; no Disney here
- ghosts, demons (but please no angels vs. demons)
- obscure legends (think the Grimm or Supernatural tv shows)
- Swamp monsters
- Harpies/Furies
- Asian inspired like Jorogumo or Nukekubi

I REALLY want a YA or Adult ghost hunting novel. Still hunting for that. #MSWL

#MSWL MG Diverse and LGBTQIA+ voices. Middle grade is really some of the toughest years of my life, and anything that can help them realize it's okay to be different, is helpful. Love ghost stories and stories of crushes and friendship at this age.

If pumpkin spice lattes are back, autumn must be right around the corner, which means I'm jumping on the spooky reads bandwagon. Send me your upmarket, creepy stories: witches, ghosts, other things that go bump in the night. How about a gothic romance, you say? Yes! #mswl
