I'm eager to find some thrillers a la ACE OF SPADES, ONE OF US IS LYING, GOOD GIRLS GUIDE TO MURDER, etc. I have clients working on amazing supernatural/fantastical thrillers, too, like @katepearsall and @stageandpage but welcome more. I love a witchy murder mystery! #MSWL

I would kill to read a heady literary mystery about a character who slowly loses it in a shoddily disguised replica of the Love Island villa that turns increasingly hellish. Does this exist? Can someone write it? #mswl

AGREE, @marjorieingall! Query me if yr book reflects the rich diversity w/in Judaism, if you're writing about a "Black Orthodox Jewish kid who solves mysteries," or a "Jewish girl on a desert planet who rescues a fugitive droid and saves the galaxy"! #MSWL nyti.ms/3r0URd0

Mystery: I'm interested in millennial cozy mysteries--something quirky, smart, and fun, but also still spooky and sharp. Would love one with a unique setting (out of the usual small town setting). General mysteries are also welcome!

Only #YA and #MG. Whodunit mysteries like Truly Devious (riddles!). Closed door thrillers/mysteries. Witchy stories like Undead Girl Gang and The Craft, grounded in the real world. #mswl

Always looking for BIPOC writers!

If you have it and I miss it, please send anyway!

(By the way I would still hella love a teen rom-com or fun MG mystery set in the modern Tower of London featuring children of Yeoman Warders who live there — the curfew shenanigans alone would be gold!) #MSWL
