A #mswl CRAVING for horror in YA and Adult. I love haunting, meaty narratives like SAWKILL GIRLS, sleepy and dreamy lore like THE WICKED DEEP, the creepy witchy nightmare of #MarianneNetflix. If it has a romance element, MAKE IT GAY. #mswl
For YA, I love mysteries, historical, contemporary, magical realism, psychological/literary horror, contemporary w/ a very light speculative touch. I love funny books, I love serious books. #MSWL
Hannah Fergesen @HannahFergesenReally in the mood for something weird and beautifully written right now. Give me your Wilder Girls, your Annihilations, your twisting, bizarre horror, your incredibly human science fiction. Give me your wildest words. #MSWL
I want to see YA or adult horror/spec fic that's deeply rooted in character (We Have Always Lived in the Castle, Baby Teeth). A lyrical spec fic like The Dreamers. I am forever dying for something you could comp to Never Let Me Go. #MSWL
Dark fantasy or magical realism à la Pan’s Labryinth is another love of mine. I’ve been reading the novelization by Guillermo del Toro and Cornelia Funke, and it has that creepy, ethereal feel of magical realism and folklore mixed with a dash of horror. #MSWL Again YA/MG ONLY.
I'm still building my MG list. Send me your MG projects!!! I'm also looking for YA contemporary, especially #OwnVoices and/or #diversity. And I really, really want more adult thrillers, horror, rom-coms, and contemporary romances. #MSWL 2/2 #writingcommunity #amquerying
I'm seeking: Adult: suspense/thrillers, horror, fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary romance, rom-com, & mysteries. YA: suspense/ thrillers, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, mysteries, & contemporary. MG: Horror, sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary, adventure, mysteries, & humor. #diversity #MSWL 1/2
My #mswl hasn't changed - still wanting books about clowns & queerness related to trickster figures, still wanting all types of found families, still wanting MG horror & spoop, I would LOVE more picture book illustrators, & a comedic YA protag coping w ED (incidental, not plot).
Really would love some queer horror--whether that's horror featuring queer characters, horror used to explore concepts of queerness, or both! Non-queer horror also welcome, especially that which hovers on the edge of suspense/horror genres #mswl
And to round out my Middle Grade #MSWL with some speculative items: chilling horror is always my jam, and I want to read your luscious, weird, wow-this-worldbuilding-is-fantastic fantasies.
