Susan Hawk @susanhawkIt’s just a week until Halloween and I’m in the mood to read something spooooky! If you’re writing a heart-stopping horror story for MG or YA, I’d love to see it. #MSWL
That said, I don’t care for gory or gross horror. Psychological horror is the sweet spot for me. Something Gothic, or with ghosts – also good! #MSWL
#MSWL Since it's October, I would love something gothic and creepy, a dark fantasy, or a historical in #YA or #A. Or something like Into the Drowning Deep. Loved that anticipation of waiting to discover the truth followed by horror.
Ooh, #mswl day! Right now I’m craving great SF/horror mashups, general dark horror, PI mysteries, gothic suspense, and dark thrillers - YA & adult! Diverse voices always a plus!
Nivia Evans @NiviaEvans#MSWL American Horror Story: Coven...but good. Gothic boarding schools, empowered women, clash of ideals, exploration of how history and culture shapes magic
Oh my god, yes yes YES, I have been wanting this FOREVER.*
(*since I first watched Coven.)
