Finished Haunting of Bly Manor and would love to see something like this in my query box!

#mswl I am especially on the hunt for adult literary horror, with lots of psychological twisty-ness.

A few specific #mswl bits I'm on the hunt for at the moment: character-driven sci-fi (THE LAST WATCH), gothic horror (THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE), immersive mystery (Attica Locke's Highway 59 series), and journalistic nonfiction (Patrick Radden Keefe is a favorite).

Horror / Speculative:
Grounded horror or speculative fiction that is creepy and unsettling, but rooted in the real world.
Think LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND, and THE CABIN AT THE END OF THE WORLD.
Other Favorites: Jennifer McMahon, Simone St. James and Alex North.

Hey Twitter. Some updates to my #MSWL:

My picture book list is quite full, so I am TEMPORARILY closing to PBs. I remain open to illustrators.

I'm very eager to find: ADULT mystery, crime, domestic suspense and horror/speculative fiction.

• gothic and horror in MG, YA, and Adult that haunts you with its writing as much as the subject matter (not one for gratuitous gore)

• contemporary fantasy with fresh hooks, strong character dynamics, immersive worlds, & romance subplots.

In YA: Gothic or horror as long as it’s not too gory. I especially love atmospheric settings and psychological horror/suspense. #MSWL 5/7

I would love some brilliant, atmospheric YA horror that is reminiscent of THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE or a slasher like SCREAM.

I've also become a fan of novels-in-verse across middle grade and YA.

And I'd love to add a few more graphic novels to my list across all ages! #mswl

I generally prefer my horror to be set in our world or something that resembles it, either past or present (think AHS: Murder House). Haunted places are a go as long as the world around them is real. But… #MSWL
