🕰️ More mystery in everything! I love a goal. Speculative? Give it a mystery. Contemp romance? Give it a mystery!! Mystery? Go ahead and slap another mystery in there, baby!!!

📽️ Tightly paced, high-tension character driven stories you can’t put down. Slice of life is not for me

I’d love a mystery with a framing device like SADIE: a podcast, documentary/mockumentary, or any other type of mixed media.

I’m REALLY looking for mystery/thrillers/suspense in both the YA and adult space, ESPECIALLY from marginalized populations. However, I am not the right fit for law enforcement protagonists or love interests.

SO I found out about true crime conferences, and I cannot stop thinking about a murder mystery that takes place at a conference where everyone is an armchair detective. #MSWL

Suspense/Mystery/Thriller set at a vacation destination #mswl

Gloomy, threatening, or naturally dangerous settings can go a long way in a thriller. But there’s something terrifying about bad things happening in beautiful, “safe” locations we associate w/ escape. This is a #mswl tweet but also promo for YOU CAN TRUST ME by @wendydheard
