Gothic

#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 The post that was retweeted is outdated.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

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

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

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!

I've been seeing a lot of queries with sophisticated tinges of horror (both YA and adult) and I am Loving it right now! Especially the Gothic horror. Perfect fall reading... #MSWL

I'm pickier with YA lately since it already makes up a large part of my list, but I'm still looking for magical realism, contemporary witches/magic, gothic stories, the influence of modern tech in romcoms, and fantasy or reimaginings that are different and fresh. #MSWL

Also, does anyone have a YA historical horror MS? Please query me. All the better if it's gothic and queer. #MSWL

All ages: Female friendship, gender subversion, Southern Gothics, wordplay and puns, under-explored chapters in history, Jewish characters beyond WWII/shtetl, economic #diversity, genre blends, stories set in the deep South, rural America, and the Southwest. That's my #MSWL.

I want more Gothic books! All types! Southern, Horror, Modern, Romance, etc. #MSWL

I'd sell my soul at the crossroads for a Southern Gothic magic-infused MG/YA novel. #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · Sep 24

I'd love to see supernatural & ghost stories, adult or YA. Bring on the eery, haunting, or Gothic. #MSWL

Happy #MSWL Day! I am ABOUT to close to queries but in #YA I’d love to see fun historical (think A Gentleman’s Guide), or historical with dashes of magic, contemporary fantasy, southern gothic, projects featuring WITCHES, rom-coms w/ strong hooks (1/)
