Horror

Our 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!!!

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

I’m not seeing enough #YA #Horror in my query inbox and I need it! Dying for some creature feature horror novels featuring a diverse cast & a creature that’s truly terrifying. #MSWL

YA Horror ghost stories are life. If it doesn’t make your skin crawl while writing it, I don’t want it. #MSWL #paranormalactivity

I'd love a chilling #YA #Horror too - heavy atmosphere, heavy tension/anticipation. Scare me, please!! #MSWL #SouthernGothic

For those #amquerying I remain open to queries. Genres high on my #mswl for 2019 in adult and YA include horror, historical fantasy, chilling mysteries, and tense stories about survival. In nonfiction would love some weird or fun history.

YA: Much the same as MG--humor, realistic teen stories, #ownvoices, adventure, sci-fi. Also, love a good teen romance, horror, mystery, but not super-dark.

Children's NF at all levels: curriculum tie-ins, PB bios, multicultural history, science, sports, pop culture.

Hello #amquerying #writingcommunity - I open to submissions in less than 24 hours! Curious what I’m looking for? A full list can be found on the @MetamorphLitAg website or QueryTracker, but here’s a little #mswl to get you started. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!

11) I’m still desperate for a good YA horror. Something dark and disturbing. More eerie than gory, and grounded in reality (no supernatural killers needed). #MSWL

DYING (ha) for more YA horror in my inbox, especially speculative/family-centric/this-monster-is-a-metaphor in the vein of THE BABADOOK or HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE #mswl
