Yes! I would like to see more surreal/sci-fi/folk horror #YA because WILDER GIRLS is bloody awesome. I want more of what Aykut Aydoğdu, who painted the cover & this below, captures in his art: that unique feeling of teenage dread & disquiet. #MSWL

This is an r/relationships post from the SA peanut gallery thread because the original was deleted. You will not regret reading this one although you might scream. 🐀🐀🐀🐀 pic.twitter.com/nIt12atnqI

I’m currently closed to queries but I firmly #MSWL this for when I open. Family controlled (or puppet-ed) by (haunted, cursed maybe) mice figurines who hide their very real presence from most but are very active in a super bad way with those they manipulate. #horror

Thoughts: would anyone read a dystopian that takes on what might happen when - world ends - and people no longer have government barrier to raid Area 51?

Could be horror. Sci fi. But... I’m curious lol #amagenting #mswl

Closed a couple deals last week we’ll be able to announce about when Miles starts college, but in the meantime let me just say this: I want more horror and I want more graphic novels. 🤫 #mswl

The best part about a little time off is getting to read real, published books 😊 Just finished Sawkill Girls and it won’t leave me alone. I’d love to see more gorgeous fantasy horror or fantasy thrillers in my inbox—something in that vein. #ya #mswl

A friend just described something as "unreliable narrator feminist horror fantasy" and turns out that's all I want in a YA novel so pls send. #mswl

#MSWL space horror about searching for Planet Nine

Eternally here for YA Rosemary's Baby. Not in the super-natural sense, but in the social horror sense. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks

I keep thinking about how badly I want to read more smart, unnerving YA horror.

I don't want gore. I want a story that makes me ask questions that I don't want an answer to. #MSWL

This 100%.

Examples like the ones Eric gives in his thread are often what I refer to when I say I want dark stories. Make me question things. Tip and break my reality into pieces.
