For adult, I would love to see some gorgeous sweeping historical fiction, something to make me laugh out loud, original, high-concept crime/thrillers and cosy crime, and those all-consuming love stories you just have to tell all your friends about💙
#MSWL TV show edition! Psychological thrillers, suspense, horror, mystery. Adult and YA. magic welcome. Things that feel bottled-up and breathless with all the unrevealed secrets... SEVERENCE, PIECES OF HER, YELLOW JACKETS, KNIVES OUT.
This is maybe nothing, but I've been looking at a lot of new release books lately, and so many of the spooky ones have frosted covers and are set in cold places... I think the pendulum is going to swing, so sent me all your SCALDING thrillers. Make me sweat. #MSWL
Today's #MSWL feature is none other than our very own @LaurenBittrich. Lauren represents psychological thrillers, voicey memoirs, and essay collections, and select YA with a focus on underrepresented voices. To query Lauren, use the link above!

Adult: Horror of all stripes - psychological, body horror, folk horror, gothic, occult, hauntings, genre blends: horror/mystery, horror/thriller, etc. I gravitate more toward literary & upmarket writing than commercial.
YA: Same as above, basically!
-- THE GREAT NORTH -- I'd love to see a novel or book club adult fic about characters out in Alaska or similarly remote landscape. This one I'm genre agnostic on, I'll take humor, horror, thriller, romance, across all age groups (nothing younger than MG).

“Psychological thrillers with new twists on classic tropes: unstable (or unhinged) narrators, missing memories or time, seemingly decent people with dark pasts, stalking, gaslighting in any form.” @claire_m_harris #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
