Horror! I'd love to see more YA horror in my inbox, and I'm also opening up to adult horror!

For adult, I'm particularly interested in horror with a social commentary focus.

I'm also open to non-horror social commentary, like YELLOWFACE.

I'm also hunting for a book with horror as its subgenre, specifically atmospheric horror, and ideally in space or at the bottom of the ocean. I’d love something propulsive and creepy (3/5)

Grounded speculative fiction and/or contemporary or historical fantasy, esp. if on the darker side. Maybe even incorporating horror or thriller. If you’re comping NINTH HOUSE, we want to read it!

We’re probably NOT a fit for romantasy, epic fantasy, or hard scifi. 2/4

"Would love to see more psychological horror in my query inbox—especially anything with a remote location (“abandoned” anything is a major selling point for me!), a haunted house (house as character!), and/or a final girl."

#Horror Novels that explore personal difficulties (caring for an aging parent, feeling like an outsider, addiction, grief, etc.) via a speculative lens.

Or funny-yet-scary #Horror stories that are pure entertainment.

Gore is great. Bring on the blood! 🩸3/?

🌟 I am officially reopening to queries! 🌟

As always, I'm looking for something to surprise and delight me with a great hook and a compelling voice, but here's a 🧵 with some wish list items.

Starting with horror. Maybe about a doll? (Me, out to dinner last last night.) 1/?

Maybe it's just October, but my #MSWL is gothic horror comics.

I want Emily Carroll/ Crimson Peak vibes. I'm talking those very intentionally limited color palettes blended with the psychological horror that keeps me up for days. And candelabras.

I love romantasy, but I’d also be curious to see romance-forward stories in other SFFH genres. Dystopian? Speculative/SF? And maybe most challenging of all….Horror? #mswl
