It's January, which means it's cold & gray & I hate leaving the house, so send me your work to keep me company! #MSWL: would love a more literary thriller a la THE TWELVE LIVES OF SAMUEL HAWLEY or BARBED WIRE HEART; writing from marginalized writers a la THE LEAVERS or

#mswl 2019: YA thrillers and twisty tales: think ALLEGEDLY, ONE OF US IS LYING, THE DARKEST CORNERS, ALL OF THIS IS TRUE, WE WERE LIARS, etc. (4/13)

Anne Tibbets @AnneTibbets · 19 Dec 2018

Still looking for that cool thriller that doesn't involve a drunk or high amateur or pro detective motivated by a dead girl. #MSWL

I’d love a #PB that’s a lyrical exploration of the stars, moon, and/or Mars.
A #MG at space camp.
Or #YA Historical in a town close to the Kennedy Space Center during the Apollo program.
Nonfiction- anything and everything space
#MSWL for 2019

In YA, I’m dying for a
- twisty psychological thriller
- dark sister story
- glimmering fantasy that’s grounded in reality
- contemporary witch story
- historical fantasy

I’m open to most things in YA, so if you think we’d be a good fit, query the agency! #MSWL

I'll just add this to my #MSWL since it sounds like my kind of #mystery #thriller #suspense, or maybe even quirky #romance or #wf. --> Human heart prompts Southwest flight to return to Seattle…

Day 13 of #25DaysofMSWL: I want a thriller or psychological read: dark, twisty, page-turning. #MSWL

James McGowan @jamerrson · 12 Dec 2018

In Mystery, Tana French is my favorite. I’d love mysteries with writing elevated to her level, but really I’m looking for ANYTHING in mystery. From procedurals to regular old mysteries, psychological thrillers. Suspense like Susan Furlong!(Excluding spy books, please). #MSWL

I also love speculative elements that run the gamut from DRY to STRANGER THINGS. Ultimately, I like stories grounded in our reality, no matter a spec element. #MSWL

I’m dying (heh) to find a thriller author like BookEnds’ very own Amanda Searcy or Karen McManus. Twisty and dark. Bonus points for something as unputdownable as Watch You Burn’s fire obsessed Jenny! #MSWL
