Time 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

#MSWL I'd love a gothic romance set in a location full of culture/history and featuring a dark and damaged hero(es?) reminiscent of Wrath! (Doesn't have to be a vampire, but no ghosts, please!)
