"I'd really love to get more YA horror in my inbox. Smart horror. I don't want gore, I want a story that creeps me out, and asks questions I don't want answers to."

"Send me select horror—I'm more interested in psychological elements, but I don't mind a bit of gore. Anything disturbing or unnerving is up my alley. Novels and collections welcome!"

Horror! I’m a huge horror movie fan, and am always on the hunt for a project to keep me up all night. Books that recently scared the pants off me: THE HACIENDA, JACKAL, THE HONEYS, and HOUSE OF HUNGER. Does it have a sense of humor a la NIGHTBITCH or “Yellowjackets?” Even better!

-YA fantasy, paranormal, or horror (no gore!)
-Adult fantasy or thrillers
-MG mystery

On the horrors, an ensemble cast is a plus but not necessary. And I’m definitely interested in haunted house stories… or basically some good atmospheric horror where the setting might play a part of the horror. #mswl

Really looking for some great #PsychologicalThriller or #horror stories right now! Either adult or ya! Also, I’m on the lookout for some great romcoms! So in other words, I want you to spook me, but then I’ll laugh about it. 😉 #mswl

For horror: Think Jordan Peele x Tim Burton x Lovecraft. Cosmic eldritch horror that dabbles in insanity and existentialism. Give me dark and skin crawling but without the gore

What I do love to see in the YA Contemporary field are thrillers, hauntings that can toe the line of horror without going overboard, rom-coms, friendship break ups, and grandparent relationships. I especially love to see all this with BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ characters. #mswl

For Adult: sweeping, weird, and darkly lyrical SFF and horror. I especially love stories with setting as character, monsters (body horror!), villains, and gorgeous writing. Think Ava Reid’s JUNIPER & THORN or Jennifer Giesbrecht’s THE MONSTER OF ELENDHAVEN.

I’m not usually one for horror (scaredy cat party of 1 😅) but I’d love to try some horror in my QM. Bonus points for being something out of the ordinary. Adult fiction only please. #mswl

queer, feminist, and non-Western horror with subtle social commentary and an atmosphere that fills me with a sense of creeping dread and makes me throw your book across the room while my heart pounds dramatically
