Mystery: historical--again, especially diverse historical--cozies, and mysteries with so much atmosphere you can practically wring it out of the pages. If your setting is integral to your story, I want to see it! #mswl

Tips for Hallmark cozy mysteries:
- the police can be misdirected, but not inept
- an amateur sleuth should have good reasons why s/he has a particular knack for solving mysteries, and strong motivations for getting involved.

I love historical fiction and there isn't nearly enough of it in #YA fiction. Would love to see more #YA #HistoricalFiction in my inbox whether it's general historical, fantasy, romance, mystery, or something else. #MSWL
These are dark times. So for distraction & entertainment I need suspense to lose myself in, or stories that make me laugh and feel. So give me loads of suspense for mysteries, and rom coms with a twist for Women's Fiction, YA and MG. #MSWL
Stacey Donovan @DonovanesqueI say this all the time, but the best way to know what kinds of things @HallmarkPublish is looking for is to watch a few current Hallmark movies. #CountdowntoChristmas is coming right up, but we'd like winter, spring, summer, and fall romances, too! #amwriting #querying #MSWL

You know what I want to see in a mystery series? TWISTER. I want a storm-chaser mystery series minus the weird love triangle. #MSWL
Also I saw this gif and my brain IMMEDIATELY started playing the "chase" music from the movie. Guess what I'm watching this weekend.
It finally feels like Fall here, and it makes me want a story with a bite in the air. Give me wind and rain and secrets and mysteries, maybe a hulking castle or lonely croft on the moor. Something you can practically squeeze the atmosphere out of. #mswl
