If you’re a MG horror author who’s like “hm I think I’m gonna submit to that Savannah Brooks fellow, she seems cool” but don’t know what my ~spooky aesthetic~ is, I just finished reading THIRTEENS, and it nailed the location-based spooks I’m pining for. I want a spook town. #MSWL
Current mood: MAJOR Halloween vibes.👻🎃🪦 I want all things spooky, eerie, haunted. My favorite type of read at the moment is Emily Carroll's fairytale-esque horror graphic novels and Mexican Gothic. I devoured Netflix's Haunting of Hill House and can't wait for the next. #mswl
“I’d really love to get more YA horror in my inbox. Smart horror. I don’t want gore, I want a story that creeps me out, and asks questions I don’t want answers to.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
1. Adult Horror: I want books that have something to SAY--about our present, our past, our future. Feminist/anti-colonialist stories are close to my heart, but I'm open to anything that can be described as "smart + terrifying." I'm also open to grounded fantasy w/ horror elements
Putting out a #mswl call for:
ANYTHING #horror. I want to be scurred. 🧟♂️👻💀
ANYTHING #lgbtq. Need more romance/nonfiction esp.🏳️🌈👩🏿🤝👩🏻👨🏼🤝👨🏾
#Fantasy from #ownvoices authors repping their culture/backgrounds🧜🏻🧚🏻♂️🧞♀️🧝🏽🧙🏻♀️
I’m eager to find YA thrillers, mysteries, psychological suspense that are brilliantly plotted. Think the work of Tiffany D. Jackson, Lamar Giles, E. Lockhart’s WE WERE LIARS, Karen McManus, etc. All would love to find original horror like WILDER GIRLS. #mswl
I just finished WONDERLAND by @zooshka, & when I say on my #MSWL I’m looking for deeply emotional horror about family relationships, this is exactly what I want! The dread, the claustrophobia, the terror of the natural world. What a stunningly agonizing read.
Con Todo @contodonetflixVampires Vs. The Bronx is a horror-comedy film from director Oz Rodriguez about teens fighting to save the Bronx from a vampire invasion.
Starring Jaden Michael, Gerald W. Jones III, Gregory Diaz IV, Joel “The Kid Mero” Martinez, Method Man & more, it's out on Netflix Oct. 2nd! pic.twitter.com/DQUWJq18sG
What do my eyes behold 😍 Vampires, horror, and a POC cast--this is #mswl all the way
If you're a Latinx author who is participating in #LatinxPitch next week and happens to have a horror novel about Worry Dolls, consider this me pre-favoriting your Tweet in a shameless attempt to get a jump on the competition. #MSWL
Took the summer off from Twitter and it was glorious. But I'm back now, for better or worse (probably the latter), and I'm particularly interested in great horror and narrative NF at the moment, in addition to my usual book tastes. #MSWL
If I missed your #PitMad pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. #A: horror, thriller, cont. romance, & mystery. #YA: thriller, horror, SFF, mystery, & cont. #MG: SFF, mystery, cont., & horror. #PB #ownvoices #diversity #MSWL #BVM querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.) com
#MSWL Suspense YES: setting-as-character in a location we haven’t seen before. A civilian in a career with an intriguing vantage point on people’s habits and motivations. Light grounded horror. Surprise me with something wild like SA Cosby, Rachel Harrison
tara 💫 open to queries 🎉 @Literary_TaraI had a dream where we went to this old house where an old lady lived, and she gave off creepy vibes that weren't natural. So after we all were assigned our rooms and everyone was asleep I went searching. There was a part of the house that was off limits. It was familiar to me...
My #2 #mswl queer horror stories in MG, YA, and adult. Horror in all shapes and sizes. I'm usually not a slasher or body horror person, though. I like psychological and supernatural, usually. Maybe something where the environment is the antagonist. Also... twitter.com/Literary_Tara/…
IN THE DREAM HOUSE, FRESHWATER, etc.
✨ all the queer horror! (YA and adult)
✨ complex + complicated mother/daughter, sister/sister, + best friend relationships
✨ more protagonists who are fat, trans/non-binary, mixed-race, dark-skinned, etc. (4/7)
