#MSWL So, I do take mysteries/thrillers and detective stories, and a current want is something in the nature of Silver and Opal Country by Chris Hammer, where the place the novel is set is a character in its own right (in that case, the Australian outback).

Will be participating in #PitDark today! If I like your pitch, please send your query letter, synopsis, and first three chapters to lharper(at)janerotrosen(dot)com.

I am also open to queries! I’m particularly hungry for adult and literary horror, dark and twisty suspense, & social horror or thrillers with a speculative edge. Full #mswl at the link in my bio, and you can submit to me here: janerotrosen.com/submissions

Also if you've written a YA Thriller or Horror, I'd love to see it. As well, select YA Fantasy will also be considered. YA with a quirky unique cast of characters is a yes, please!

My areas of expertise are upmarket and literary fiction, women's fiction, mystery, suspense and thriller. I love books w/ strong family focus (found, friends, those you're born with) and home. Even in mystery I love those connections #MSWL

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💙

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

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).
