Last night I procrastinated so much on Actual Things (cleaning? life? etc) that I made myself a website 👀 taragonzalez.com
The top three things I'd love to see more of in my query inbox, in no particular order 📚 #MSWL
1. Romance of any subgenre, especially if it's queer or polyamorous
2. Contemporary fantasy with unique magic systems and lore
3. Gothic horror, particularly from marginalized voices
Tiffany Shelton (she/her) 🧛🏾♀️ @TiffanyDiahannI feel like I'm just going to constantly retweet this until I find what I'm looking for in historical fiction. Even open to a gothic horror novel with BIPOC set in the 18th and 19th centuries. #MSWL twitter.com/TiffanyDiahann…
I would also take a gothic horror like this #MSWL
Tiffany Shelton (she/her) 🧛🏾♀️ @TiffanyDiahannGIVE ME HISTORICAL FICTION THAT DOES NOT ERASE BLACK PEOPLE OR ANY POC.
I will continue to say that Belle is one of my favorite movies (and yes I did read the nonfic book), and I want fiction like it.

Amanda Jain @wensday95Time for my annual fall #mswl! Send me all your murdery, gothic, horror, witchy books with bonfires and cozy sweaters and apple cider. pic.twitter.com/RPMlepQVX7
I'm early this year, and I don't care. All I've wanted to do in this blazing heat is wear sweaters, drink hot tea, and watch scary movies. So, start sending those spooky projects my way! I would be particularly interested in any murdery, gothic, witchy nonfiction books. #mswl
Think Crimson Peak, Edgar Allen Poe, The Haunting of Bly Manor, Mexican Gothic, Ninth House, Ace of Spades, dark Gossip Girl, & Addams Family!
Give me a heavy atmosphere & aesthetic.
