I’ve been seeing a lot of fire lookout tower videos and think it’s such a cool environment for a thriller or horror novel #mswl

WRITERS! New #MSWL w/ a few changes. Still looking for Adult NF (lifestyle, parenting, sports, current events, etc) and YA/MG/PB, but expanding YA/MG to fantasy and still including dystopian/sci-fi/horror/contemporary. Make me laugh, make me sob! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/shari-maurer/

Adult/YA Horror: It takes a lot to scare me, so hit me with your best shot! I want to be terrified so that I can't sleep. I want sentient settings, scares that mess with your mind, where the lines of reality are blurred...10/

MG Fantasy: I honestly really love it all, but am really wanting a magic school with diverse cast and magical creatures (esp dragons!!)

MG Horror: Again I love it all, but would love a summer camp setting, haunted house/school, monster hunters and sentient natural settings 4/

Inspired by @laurenspieller I would like to say that any story that takes place on a cruise ship is automatically scary, for me. you can do a rom-com but if it's on a cruise ship, I will think it's a horror. Aaand now I want a horror rom com on a ship. #MSWL .
