While it's still pitch dark outside by 5:30, I'd be extremely down for a middle grade ghost story, agent friends #MSWL

YES!!! I'm always a fan of ghost stories. MG horror, YA horror, even the occasional adult horror... Halloween and spooky things are my jam! #mswl

Unexplained Occurrences @TalesOfBeyond

Update on this one twitter.com/TalesOfBeyond/โ€ฆ pic.twitter.com/zXFxk2lRIx

#MSWL mc gets increasingly pissed off and figures out how to communicate with ghost not to get rid of it but to tell it to shut the fuck up

only to have said ghost scream "JESUS CHRIST FINALLY I'VE BEEN TRYING TO TALK TO YOU FOR WEEKS"

and then they have angry friend adventures

I'd really love a ghostly horror story that is one part all those sea shanties we can't stop listening to, one part The Lighthouse, and a dash of The Terror. Even better if it's BIPOC and LGBTQIA+. #MSWL

Oddly specific Halloween #mswl: in the mood for... a YA ghost romance? ๐Ÿค” Some kind of historical or time-travel shenanigans a plus but not required.

i want a book about one of those stage-show psychic mediums, but it's organized and mostly run by their ghost companions, and mostly funny as they rehash all the petty issues they're carrying instead of confronting their real baggage with the living #MSWL
