Writers, I am begging, please give me an Adult horror novel reminiscent of #Archive81. The way the show understands that some of the greatest horror comes from our need to have answers from/about the people we love - and the way we’d burn our own flesh for resolution. #mswl

More specifically, I’m seeking:

-Engaging, escapist YA that also offers social commentary. Bonus for genre-blending. Do you have a sci-fi thriller that interrogates what it means to be human? A horror fantasy that comments on the immigrant experience? Send it my way!

🌟YA thrillers, psychological horror, supernatural, & speculative fiction that radically represents & explores queer, female, and BIPOC rage & revenge
▫️ Think: Iron Widow, Sadie, Nimona, or, for a film example, Jennifer’s Body #MSWL

I am easily scared but still on the hunt for YA psychological thrillers with big emotional stakes and horror that grapples with social issues and The Way We Live Now

New year, new #MSWL!

I represent BIPOC, Queer, and marginalized creators writing commercial genre fiction across MG, YA, Adult, and Graphic Novel. My particular weaknesses are genre-blending SFF, horror, and anything with murder or making out (ideally both)

IN SCIENCE FICTION:

πŸ›ΈPhilosophical and character-centered stories that ask the big questions of existence
πŸ›Έ Stories that engage with religion, spirituality, and the ephemeral
πŸ›Έ Cosmic horror
πŸ›Έ Science fantasy

I'm not a good fit for hard sci-fi, dystopia, or space operas.

I love a good haunting and a good heist, always, and the shadowy place where horror, fantasy, and romance kiss. I’m not big on chosen ones, magical rebellions, elemental magic, or stories centering warriors, but I'm open to being surprised by the right manuscript.

as we live through ever-more-horrific class differentiation irl i've been dying for some fricassee-the-rich horror about how claustrophobic and hideous most retreats of the wealthy are if you think about them for 2 seconds. house of usher on a private island or yacht when? #mswl
