I hadn't updated my actual #MSWL page since starting the new agency, but I did so today--if you're interested, you can find a more detailed discussion of what I'm looking for in submitted projects this coming year here:…

General #MSWL stuff: magic/spells gone wrong, ghosts, resurrections, possessions, the end of the world scenarios, characters who get themselves into weird/messed up situations that push them to their emotional limits, & friendship stories, especially friendships that ended badly.

Another item on my wishlist: anything nonfiction involving the paranormal & supernatural (fyi one of my longtime favorite shows is ghost adventures!) #mswl

I love ghosts. I especially love ghosts in novels who can do just about anything living people can do, who just happen to not be currently, well, alive. #MSWL

#mswl - I would love a fresh take on YA paranormal: vampires or werewolves like we've never seen them before, or a sprawling ghost story. Something that feels both grounded and also epic in terms of it scope and stakes.

I've been on a #horror kick and would love some more in my inbox. I tend to gravitate towards psychological horror, or ghost stories. #MSWL

Think Jennifer McMahon, Hill House, Paul Tremblay.
I'm not one for demons and creatures or what have you.

#MSWL - #MG: I will always want more creepy AF middle grade. Always and forever. Give me lyrical voices and atmosphere for *days* and I will love you. Ghost stories with a twist. Creepy carnivals. Alternate worlds a la Coraline. GIMME GIMME PLZ.

Spooky PBs! 👻🖤✨💀🎃

Ghosts, haunted houses, cobwebs. I would die for a picture book about rusalka.

See How to Make Friends with a Ghost for my spooky book crush, as well as an upcoming picture book called The Ugly Doodles by my client @vwicker2478. #MSWL

Lastly (I think), ghost stories, for MG/YA/adult. Did anyone out there also grow up with Kathryn Tucker Windham's Jeffrey books? Give me ghost stories for people who grew up loving the Jeffrey books. #MSWL

But not just ghost stories, but anything dark and creepy. I just watched We Have Always Lived in the Castle (which is fantastic, btw), so creepy/gothic with an unreliable narrator is a plus. #MSWL YA/MG only.
