I'm eager to find some thrillers a la ACE OF SPADES, ONE OF US IS LYING, GOOD GIRLS GUIDE TO MURDER, etc. I have clients working on amazing supernatural/fantastical thrillers, too, like @katepearsall and @stageandpage but welcome more. I love a witchy murder mystery! #MSWL

Going to put a bit of a wild #MSWL out here. If anyone's working on an adult novel that can comp Scream AND something super millennial like The Herd or A Special Place for Women, I want to see it. My query box is open (query@psliterary.com) for some suspense/thriller/horror.

#MSWL For YA, I’d love to see kind of edgy contemporary and thrillers that represent some of that diversity mentioned above. One specific thing I’d ~love is a story about a teenage activist who stands for something they believe in, perhaps despite being underestimated.

"Dark, twisted, borderline disturbing… words I’d use to describe my interest in thrillers. Not looking for gore at the moment, but definitely into psychological elements. Especially fictionalized accounts of actual crimes." @claire_m_harris #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Only #YA and #MG. Whodunit mysteries like Truly Devious (riddles!). Closed door thrillers/mysteries. Witchy stories like Undead Girl Gang and The Craft, grounded in the real world. #mswl

Always looking for BIPOC writers!

If you have it and I miss it, please send anyway!
