Stayed up far too late finishing Reckless Girls by @LadyHawkins... perfect example of the sort of suspense I'm after at the moment. Escapist, feminist, chilling, a little bit sexy, multi POV, secrets-and-lies, a proper 'shut-the-front-door' ending... #mswl fodder indeed!

In #horror, I'm not afraid to go dark and am open to supernatural of some kind. However, I do prefer things be grounded. Like how Midnight Mass was OUT THERE, but also very realistic? Somehow? I also love the psychological horror that overlaps with #mystery or #suspense. #MSWL

I'd really like to work on a great novel or two this year. I'm looking for propulsive #suspense, edgy #mysteries, and grounded #horror. I love dark books that keep you guessing, with characters that are well drawn and memorable. #MSWL

OK, #MSWL time. In Adult, I want SUSPENSE, especially centering women, queer characters, and BIPOC. I prefer smaller scale, with high personal stakes.

I'm not the right fit for detectives/police/military or ppl running around the world trying to stop [insert catastrophic thing]

#MSWL 3/5 Page-turning, atmospheric, sharply written #crime, #suspense, #thrillers They're sometimes about family/relationships or social issues or culture but are very much in their genre.

My adult #MSWL still hopes for GREAT thrillers & suspense. But IF it's historical, then it must match, re: detectives, the BRILLIANT Leo Wechsler OR Gereon Rath. If modern, it must match Maarten S. Sneijder. So far, I haven't seen a submission worthy of them. Please, send me one.
