Have been re-watching The Vampire Diaries while home and realizing how much I would love to see queries for an adult paranormal romance w/ a vampire hero as swoon-worthy as Damon during his Miss Mystic Falls dance with Elena #MSWL
#MSWL I would love to see a sexy, original adult #vampire and/or #werewolf novel set in a well-developed world with unlimited tie-in novel potential. Deets on how to query me here: cityowlpress.com/queries/ (scroll down) #querytip

...latched onto my neck and I woke up screaming. I've never done that before. I've yelled in my sleep, but never have I screamed bloody murder.
That's what I want. I want a vampire story that's out of the box and keeps me up at night. #MSWL
Brooks Sherman (OPEN to queries!) @byobrooksBut remember, guys: I want vampires that are SCARY. Think old school, terrifying, atmospheric... the walking personification of plague and death. (I’m cheerful like that!) 🤗 #mswl
Bump (in the night). #mswl
Brooks Sherman (OPEN to queries!) @byobrooksAlso, in the MG space, I’d love a vampire project that feels reminscent of the movie Monster Squad, or of Angela Sommer-Bodenburg’s My Friend the Vampire series! #mswl
Also bump. #mswl
Brooks Sherman (OPEN to queries!) @byobrooksHi all, after walking around NOLA with @runwithskizzers and refreshing my memory about the infamous Casket Girls (look them up!), I’m officially putting it out there that I would love love LOVE a YA novel that is a vampire version of The Craft. #mswl 😱💀🌙
Jalissa @jmarcellecorrieSince vampires are back, can someone write a YA vampire comedy along the lines of WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS?? I'd read the hell out of that pic.twitter.com/s5g9pMlEeY
This is at the *top* of my #MSWL
rachel strolle @recitrachelSince I’ve been rewatching Buffy, I realized I would love a YA anthology that features stories of characters who come into contact with the same vampire over hundreds of years.
One who hunts them, one who nearly dies because of them, one who loves them, one who kills them
Ummm yes please! Multi pov for the win! #mswl
Sarah Guan @🏡 @Sarah_GuanCan we talk about how problematic the vampiric olds would be? Imagine your most racist, homophobic, ableist great great grand-uncle born in 1793. Imagine him living FOREVER.
Now put that in a culture where respecting the olds is *literally part of the value system.*
#mswl all of this. not necessarily in the same book.
also also, I want a conversation between two olds, one a man and one a woman, where the woman is angry as all heck about how the man treated her.
bc I guarantee you, no matter how long ago it was, the women "knew better."
Sarah Guan @🏡 @Sarah_GuanAll this chatter about a vampire (and werewolf) comeback. I have thoughts...
I like my supernatural, human-but-not characters. But I’d love some new takes—not the resurrecting of classics that worked the last time around. Let’s see new perspectives get a bite at that apple.
If a vampire comeback materializes, I’m just going to remind the world that this thread exists and is still on my #MSWL. Give me all the PoC vampires with messy family drama and historical traumas that won’t go away esp. since great-granny vamp is still salty about the Opium Wars
