Putting out an #MSWL call for marginalized creators and all of the beautiful intersections therein 🧡

I'd love to see more projects in book club fiction, thrillers, mysteries, suspense, romance, SFF, and horror for middle-grade, YA, & adult readers! Genre blends too!

Likewise, crime with a standout quality is always welcome, whether police procedural, historical crime, detective, psychological crime or crime thriller. Nothing overly gratuitous please!

🥶 Thriller 🚪

I’m always looking for anything hooky within thriller for both adults and young adults. Locked room thrillers, like The Sanatorium and The Guest List, are especially welcome.

🤔 Psychological Thriller 🧠

I’m looking for psychological thriller and domestic suspense which is twisty and has a unique hook. I love an unreliable narrator and the feeling of not knowing who to trust. Shock, surprise and confuse me in the best ways!

Well, the secret's out. YA has crept into my heart through some of my clients so I am opening queries to the rest of y'all. :)

I'm looking for: YA horror (lite), YA paranormal (ghost stories), and YA thriller. Keep it weird and spooky, my friends. #mswl

3. A genre-bending thriller (in English only). If you read Kill The Next One by Federico Axat you may understand what I mean by 'genre-bending'. The voice on the page is important. #MSWL

- suspense and psychological thrillers, but specifically with a textured, vibrant sense of setting (think Gillian Flynn’s SHARP OBJECTS)
- folklore and mythological retellings, particularly non-Eurocentric traditions
- magical realism

I'm eagerly seeking commercial thrillers, horror, and domestic suspense, as well as upmarket speculative fiction.

In all of these genres, I'm looking for high concept stories with something new to say.

Send me adult + #YA literary thrillers and horror. I am a suspense junkie, who loves to be scared, and I can go very, very dark--except please no violence against children or rape. But blood and gore are fine.

As are creepy dolls and bad romance (but maybe not together?).

I am on the hunt for a gripping, page-turning #YA thriller, where the suspects are aplenty, and the story has heft--something that would sit on the shelf next to
@KCjohnsonwrites's THIS IS MY AMERICA.
