Hi, black Southern Gothic with spec elements needs to hit my inbox. Please and thank you!


Melanie Fried @Melanie_Fried · Mar 18

Agents! Would ❤️ to see: historical (1900s), diverse voices, complex female relationships, high society, immigrant stories, suspense, light speculative, campus setting, southern, family dramas, gothic, nostalgia, romcom. All upmarket w/ commercial hook & feminist themes. #mswl

In anticipation of my trip to New Orleans, one thing on my #mswl is almost any kind of book about the American South. Southern Gothic, romance, non-fiction, horror etc. Especially written by/about people of color. (Also open to already published book recommendations!)

#MSWL Retellings, magical realism, Gothic settings, witches, vampires, genre bendy things, anything you would comp to one of my own books (Agented only)

Anne Tibbets ::CLOSED TO QUERIES:: @AnneTibbets · Feb 24

In Adult Horror #MSWL I'm partial to:
- Historical and/or sub-genre horror
- Literary-esque voice
- Not a slasher movie plot
- MAIN CHARACTER DRIVEN, not monster/killer driven
- I love moody, atmospheric, and creepy af
- Creative/unique monsters (if applicable)
- Gothic a plus

For #YA send me all your charming rom-coms, your heartfelt exploration of sibling dynamics, thrillers that will keep me up at night turning the pages, and all the southern gothic you can handle. Oh & anything with hints of magic. I LOVE contemporary fantasy & light fantasy #MSWL

Diana M. Pho 📚 @writersyndrome · Feb 5

For #MSWL in horror

- Creepy Southern/Western Americana or non-Western world Gothic

- horror that interrogates sociopolitical fears

- anything you can see Bruce Campbell starring in

- no exploitative violence against femmes and POC pls

Replying to @AshleyHearn

Dark fantasy, gothic fantasy, horror-fantasy blends, and stories with subversive religious themes. Think SERPENT & DOVE, WICKED SAINTS, and THE YEAR OF THE WITCHING. #MSWL

Since I'm not feeling poetic today, I'll just bluntly say I want a delicious, dramatic, feverish gothic love story. No powerless women trapped in attics please. Thanks! #MSWL

Ann Leslie Tuttle @AnnLeslieTuttle · 13 Dec 2019

#MSWL. The post that was retweeted is outdated. I am looking for rom coms, historical romance, romantic suspense; women’s fiction, especially stories related to relationships; thrillers; Southern Gothics; Middle Grade and narrative nonfiction.

A couple things I REALLY want to read right now.

Historical YA with no magic, especially if its gothic/southern gothic.

Romantic Comedies, but with a new twist or perspective. Example: diverse backgrounds, gender-bending, or a retelling of Shakespeare/fairtales/myths. #mswl

Jennifer '🐍' Grimaldi @JA_Grimaldi · 10 Nov 2019

but ALSO (outside of category romance) give me gothic tragedy, and unrequited yearning, falling for the absolute wrong person & never climbing out #MSWL

Kiele Raymond @kieleraymond · 31 Oct 2019

Hi I just discovered Ann Pratt - can someone please write a Caribbean gothic novel about her? #MSWL

Rachel Cone-Gorham @rcgnyc · 10 Oct 2019

Fall is just the perfect time for getting cozy and curling up with a great book. This week my #mswl includes a contemporary gothic horror, a boarding school setting with a twist, and a home/lifestyle/business non fiction that will help us get organized for the new season!
