BookEnds Literary Agency @bookendslit@wensday95 wants #Historicalfiction with a slight #speculative or #horror bent like Alma Katsu's THE HUNGER or Sarah Perry's THE ESSEX SERPENT
BONUS: she also wants contemp mystery/thriller where setting is integral like Jane Harper's books or Attica Locke's BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD.
I'd love a literary mystery. Some twisty suspense that feels *new* and avoids the girl-gone-missing trope (or turns it on its head).
More #ownvoices, please!
HORROR/a fresh ghost story.

Eliza Swift @elizaswiftOur whole office has been talking about the Fyre festivals docs and I have a new #mswl: a YA horror/thriller set at a musical festival gone wrong. Give me this book!!!
Living for this book, tbh #MSWL
Similarly, I’d love a dark psychological thriller with hints of horror, like Iain Reid’s I’M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS. Or something inspired by real world events like Karen Dionne’s THE MARSH KING’S DAUGHTER. The darker and twistier you can go, the better. #mswl
Chelsey Emmelhainz @CKEmmelhainzMy current #MSWL:
- toxic female friendships
- spooky suspense (maybe w/ supernatural/horror bent)
- suspense featuring cults and witches (a la, THE CRAFT)
- family dysfunction + messed up secrets
- female serial killers
It appears my #MSWL list is evergreen, because I'm definitely still hunting for all these elements in my mystery/suspense/women's fiction submissions...
