Well, the secret's out. YA has crept into my heart through some of my clients so I am opening queries to the rest of y'all. :)

I'm looking for: YA horror (lite), YA paranormal (ghost stories), and YA thriller. Keep it weird and spooky, my friends. #mswl

or a female-led gothic thriller set in rural Yorkshire. or a dark academia story, rife with ghosts and hauntings and murder, set in Scotland against the lashes and winds of the North Sea

- "i have a ghost friend" a la yugioh with characters like yami yuugi or astral, or even like hikaru no go where the protag gets wrapped up in a new world and gains a new skill and passion
- stuff that could be comp'd to "megaman: nt warrior" with personal AI avatars

For YA, I'm more turning to Historical, Contemporary, and Contemporary Romance. Super selective on Fantasy and Paranormal right now, though would still love to see concepts on witches or ghosts (and vamps if unique!)

My YA romantasy caveat is that the romance must be between humans. I am not the right fit for fae or elves or orcs or mermaids or aliens or robots.

(However, things that were once human are OK: vampires, werewolves, ghosts). #mswl

Looking for ALL the graphic novel ghost stories! More more boo than blood and more spooky than scary for MG, but I'm all in for YA and Adult. Have a headless horseman retelling? Yes, please.

I also love paranormal elements like monsters and ghosts. And anything witchy! I love characters fighting their own "inner demons” too! I'm selectively open to elements like vampires.

Any atmospheric setting--e.g. an eerie seaside town might be cool!
