Sarah Phair @SarahPhairExcited to see that Tayari Jones has a new novel. I loved American Marriage for many reasons, but particularly because it felt so Southern.
I am dying for more contemporary Southern stories. Please send them to me. #MSWL
Southern gothic has been claimed so much by white writers when some of my favorite southern gothic literature is by black authors so would love to see the submissions I get really reflect the diversity of the south and of vampires, haha. #mswl
Vicki Lame @thedaysbetweenFor everyone asking, at this time I only accept agented submissions. But! There are a ton of agents out there looking for similar projects. #mswl
Basically Vicki and I will take your southern gothics and vampires, thank you very much #mswl

Ashley Hearn @AshleyHearnTHIS IS WHERE I GREW UP. THEY BUILT THIS LAKE OVER A FREAKING TOWN AND SOME CEMETERIES. YET EVERY SUMMER MY PARENTS THOUGHT I WAS STRANGE FOR NOT WANTING TO SWIM IN IT.

#MSWL! 😉📚❤️ Southern gothic MG or YA anyone?
One specific #MSWL for Christian #YA: I live in a small southern town, and I'd love a narrator with that undercurrent of commentary on everyone else and their "kin" who learns the hard way that the crazies around her are HER PEOPLE. Be sure to include a covered dish scene.
