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!

Ask @ryandouglassw, @KatyaDeBecerra, @LizParkerWrites and @2furiosa - I like my YA dark. Horror, dark fantasy, paranormal, ghosts, vampires, werewolves, spirits. Scare me and you’ll win my heart. #MSWL MG, YA, and Adult.

Good morning! It's #MSWL day!

Agents + editors will be tweeting what they wish they had in their inboxes.

Writers can take note of which agents may be a good fit, and then submit work traditionally.

Need any help? @kkhendin and I are standing by!

I've been pretty vocal in the past week about what I'm looking for, but I'll say it again with the #MSWL tag!

- Thrillers! 😳 (Adult & YA)
- Horror! 😰 (Adult & YA)
- Contemporary YA 😎
- Speculative 🤔😍 (YA & adult)
- Fantasy ⚔️🔮🛡🐉(MG/YA/adult)
- Hilarious MG 😂

I tweet out #MSWL thoughts pretty regularly so you can always search those. That said, my list is pretty full of contemporary YA right now. I'd love a great YA thriller or horror novel to add to my list!

If your SF/F is bordering on horror, tell me about it! #MSWL

I love the idea of #MSWL day but I'm rarely looking for a very specific concept or type of book. I just want the book to be yours and yours alone. To be so specific you can see the whole world in its details. That said, here are a few things that are very top of mind for me:

Contemporary horror/thriller focused on the experiences of POCs. We live harrowing lives and ones that see the world from a different angle. Film/tv has done a great job of catching up to representing those experiences. I want more of it in books. #MSWL

#MSWL cont
+ magical realism (set in known world), spec fic

I want horror, mystery, and suspense across all categories. Give me serial killers. Give me unreliable narrators. Give me the Satanic Panic. Give me the weird shit. I love dark stories that are challenging and unexpected. #MSWL

Jennifer A. Grimaldi @JA_Grimaldi · 12 Sep 2018

Gothic supernatural horror with the tragic beauty of CRIMSON PEAK & the romanticism of JANE EYRE. Bonus points for tragic staring off into the bogs #mswl

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

And I like a little genre mixing, so send me your upmarket historical mysteries and psychological sci-fi horror and magical realism retelling of Hamlet. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I said it the other day and I'll say it again, I'd love to get more coming-of-age horror. Though I like coming-of-age mixed with mystery too, like the brilliant novel DODGING AND BURNING. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I like literary, high concept sci-fi in the vein of Ray Bradbury or Philip K. Dick. Bradbury in particular was great at really character-driven, emotion-driven stories, whether they were sci-fi, horror or contemporary. That's what I'm looking for in sci-fi. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

Happy #MSWL Day! I'm looking for commercial, literary and upmarket fiction for both adult and YA. I love mysteries, historical, magical realism, myth retellings, novel retellings, psychological thrillers/suspense, psychological/literary horror...

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 12 Sep 2018

Right now is the perfect time of year to send me your YA or MG Horror manuscript… #MSWL
