Mystery/thrillers! I'm especially looking for YA mysteries that comp to Holly Jackson, Courtney Summers, and Tiffany D. Jackson! For Adult, I'd love to see historical mysteries like DEAD DEAD GIRLS, academic mysteries like THE IT GIRL, and fun thrillers a la Stacey Willingham!

And finally: I'd love a timely upmarket thriller with a ripped from the headlines hook and killer characters. Think ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL or PEOPLE LIKE HER.

Another gap: I'm missing a thriller that is super high-concept - have you written the next WRONG PLACE, WRONG TIME, END OF STORY, DO NO HARM? 🙋‍♀️I'm your girl.

...especially because one of the biggest gaps on my list is a destination thriller. I'm manifesting this for myself in 2023! Some that I loved in 2022 include: BREATHLESS, forthcoming debut THE DIVE, DEEP WATER, THE VILLA, and SUN DAMAGE.

My women's fiction list is a little full; I'll be focusing on suspense, thrillers, book club historical, and contemporary novels with an edge for the first half of 2023.

Psychological thrillers with new twists on my favorite classic tropes: unstable (or unhinged) narrators, missing memories or time, seemingly decent people with dark pasts, stalking, gaslighting in any form. As long as the twists don't distract from the story, I'm in! #MSWL

I’d love to see more revenge stories (specifically in the thriller category). It could be a scorned lover, a group of friends avenging someone's death, a sister story, etc. If your character is in their villain era, send it my way! #MSWL

⭐️Thrillers, psychological horror, supernatural, mystery, and speculative fiction that radically represents and explores queer, female, and BIPOC rage, revenge, and reclamation of power (think Elatsoe, Iron Widow, Sadie)

#MSWL 2/?
-contemporary MG and YA issue books, where the issue is NOT the main focus
-MG and YA romances #LGBTQ+, as well as M/F
-jaw-dropping, twisty thrillers in both YA and adult fiction
-traditional mysteries with a fresh twist and a hint of romance but NOT romantic suspense

Thrillers! I’m famously hard to surprise, so anything with a twist I don’t see coming is an auto “yes.” Ruth Ware, Riley Sager, Megan Abbott, and Lucy Foley are my go-tos, but I would love to read something that can put a fresh twist on the genre (think THE MAID or "Knives Out.")

Crime/thriller. A strong hook. A killer plot. Impossible-to-ignore characters. Think simmering tension and unbearable suspense. (Not currently looking for police procedurals.) #mswl
