I’m also a super-duper realistic horror fan (Scream and Jaws are two of my favorite all-time movies), so I’m here for contemporary realistic slashers that aren’t too gory, thrillers, and whodunnits (Scream is a whodunnit!!) in #YA #MSWL

Horror. Upmarket. Think Victor LaValle’s LONE WOMEN, Stephen Graham Jones’ THE ONLY GOOD INDIANS, and Aly Wilkes’ ALL THE WHITE SPACES. Why? Here’s why. #MSWL 🧵

New year, new #MSWL!

I represent BIPOC, Queer, and marginalized creators writing commercial genre fiction across MG, YA, Adult, and Graphic Novel. My particular weaknesses are genre-blending SFF, horror, and anything with murder or making out (ideally both)

2023 #MSWL! As a reminder, I represent BIPOC, queer, & marginalized creators making joy for themselves in SFF & horror for MG, YA, Adult, and Graphic Novel.
My existing MSWL is still a mortifyingly perfect encapsulation of my tastes, but this year I'm looking for even MORE:

10 - Horror and dark fantasy – don’t be afraid to let it get weird. Thinking mushrooms growing out of reanimated rabbits à la T. Kingfisher. Aiming for the more atmospheric side of things than all-out gore.

I do love spookier/horror elements. Give me your ghosts, shadows, unexplainable phenomenon. Think THE WHISPERING DARK or WILDER GIRLS vibes.

I'm not against monster-hunter/vampire-slayer type stories, but I often tend not to be right for them.

I am pretty picky with my YA spec fic interests, and it's sort of an "I'll know it when I see it" situation. That being said, I tend toward contemporary fantasy, horror, and/or relatively grounded narratives that feature some kind of speculative twist (i.e.: CEMETERY BOYS).

"I've been loving horror that has a lighter writing style to contrast the darkness of the story itself. If you have humor in your horror, I'd love to take a look!"

Gothics and dark academia!! Please!! Whether they’re speculative or not, whether they lean more into horror or into romance, I’m very flexible with these two subgenres and want to see them all.

I read very broadly in horror, but some of my recent fave reads have been LEECH, SUMMER SONS, MEXICAN GOTHIC, MANHUNT, & HOUSE OF HUNGER in adult, HOUSE OF HOLLOW & THE TAKING OF JAKE LIVINGSTON in YA. Big fan of INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE & WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS as well.

All types, ages, and subgenres of horror. Looking for the whole spectrum: quiet atmospheric stories, darkly funny horror comedies, and big, over the top slashers. This is the main genre I’m looking for in MG!
