Suspense

Alexandra Sehulster @ASehulster · 2d

I'm over suspense that features a man controlling the strings with the central protag overpowered and manipulated by him. Give me your thrillers with dynamic leading women. Show me what suspense looks like btwn friends, btwn sisters. Explore these relationships deeply #MSWL

Breaking News: San Francisco became the first major U.S. city to ban the use of facial recognition technology by police and other municipal agencies nyti.ms/2VA92cJ

If you're thinking about setting your dystopian in San Francisco, think again.

But maybe a great locale for a crime or psychological suspense novel with an antihero protagonist? #MSWL

Privacy fears allayed... for now.

Talking about interesting settings for romantic suspense books today and this article about living in a ghost town popped up. I wonder what could happen in a place like this... bit.ly/2JoHQGH #MSWL

I'd love to see suspense books with interesting, evocative outdoor settings like national parks (Grand Canyon, Yellowstone) or snowy mountains or deserts.

In a poem, @Danez_Smif said, "there are no amber alerts for the amber-skinned girls." And now, I desperately need a badass thriller/suspense with POC about this. #MSWL

3. I really want to see more #romanticsuspense. Heart-pounding thrillers with high stakes. I want to see strong women partnering up with strong men to save the day together. No damsels in distress. #MSWL

And where is the LGBTQ domestic suspense I've been asking and begging for? I still haven't received it. Still waiting. #MSWL I'm also still obsessed with Alaska & would be thrilled to see more books set there.

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Apr 30

That's it, more women's fiction with girls trips. Or, a domestic suspense featuring women's friendships (maybe a girls trip). #MSWL I also love the idea of a book featuring new and old wives/spouses.

Authors! I've been closed to queries for 3 months due to ill health in my family. I am re-opening today, but being somewhat specific on what I'm seeking. Please read this thread or my #MSWL manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… (The tulip is just for fun.) ....

This has been a good week for catching up on submissions. My #MSWL hasn’t changed much—women’s fiction, suspense, upmarket & literary. Also nonfiction (no memoir please). My inbox has room.

While I'm at it, it would ALSO be great to read a super smart, deviously plotted domestic suspense or psych thriller. #mswl
