Romance. All the romance. Gothic, LGBTQIA+, romance in space (hello, WINTER’S ORBIT), unrequited love, erotic kneeling, enemies to lovers. I love ALL THE TROPES. I’d especially love to see some disaster bisexuals in any setting, just being disastrous. #MSWL

A few specific #mswl bits I'm on the hunt for at the moment: character-driven sci-fi (THE LAST WATCH), gothic horror (THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE), immersive mystery (Attica Locke's Highway 59 series), and journalistic nonfiction (Patrick Radden Keefe is a favorite).

• gothic and horror in MG, YA, and Adult that haunts you with its writing as much as the subject matter (not one for gratuitous gore)

• contemporary fantasy with fresh hooks, strong character dynamics, immersive worlds, & romance subplots.

In YA: Gothic or horror as long as it’s not too gory. I especially love atmospheric settings and psychological horror/suspense. #MSWL 5/7

11: Southern Gothic, and/or other regional twists on the genre. Comps: SING UNBURIED SING and the forthcoming SUMMER SONS. Neo-Gothic, like WHITE IS FOR WITCHING.

Monthly reminder that I'd love more of the following stories:

- Southern Gothic

- Small town/isolated settings with a darkness to them and how characters deal with it. Think Sawkill Girls or Burn Our Bodies Down

- Queer found families with various dynamics.
