A sneak peek at my eventual #MSWL —I’d swoon over a Gilmore Girls inspo with a paranormal or speculative element, anything that could comp my favorite song of all time, “Never Surrender” by Cory Hart or a story set in a coastal boating town. #amquerying #WritingCommunity

I love and devour everything by Simone St. James (aka crime / thrillers with a paranormal twist), so if you can comp to her even slightly, SOLD. I adore a good haunted house story with terrifying, angry ghosts. Loved MEXICAN GOTHIC by Silvia Moreno-Garcia recently. #MSWL

I have so, so much fantasy right now but zero of it contemporary. So, if you have any contemporary fantasy or paranormal stories, I'm interested. #mswl
