I also love paranormal elements like monsters and ghosts. And anything witchy! I love characters fighting their own "inner demons” too! I'm selectively open to elements like vampires.
Any atmospheric setting--e.g. an eerie seaside town might be cool!
Happy Spooky Season!! I always want spooky books (especially witchy stuff) but I'm really in the mood for vampires a la THE MORGANVILLE VAMPIRES. Definitely also time for a re-read. #MSWL
Kristine Swartz @KristineESwartzI'm feeling burnt out from summer/spring/all-of-2020, but want to go into fall with good energy so here are some of the things I'm looking for! #MSWL
Werewolf and vampire romances because I've been feeling super nostalgic lately and it's almost spooky season. #MSWL
#mswl for YA and MG, Halloween edition:
- small town murder
- houses, hotels, etc. with minds of their own
- curses of any kind
- demons, goblins, general spooky denizens
- fall festivals
- cozy MG, witchy or not
Agents, if you have any of the above, pls reach out!
LisaGreenEditor @LisaGreenEdito2Guys, I want vampires. I NEED vampires, but with a twist. IF they are adult/NA and there's HOT romance, send them please. #MSWL QueryManager.com/LisaGreenQueri…
#MSWL I'm a sucker for the fish out of water trope, especially if that fish is fresh to a new identity (freshly turned vampire, just found out hidden paranormal genes run in the family, etc). Add humor, and I'm all-in!
I love grounded, upmarket genre fiction. The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires, The Rook, The Warehouse, Hench, Mexican Gothic, Station Eleven. When I reopen to queries on Sept 1, please send me books like this.

💫 Paranormal adult rom com. I’m still on the hunt for a vampire or witchy rom com, and queer it if you got it. I’m talking charming, quirky, funny, steamy, tropey, just add witches and/or vamps. Easy peasy. 🤩🧛🏻♀️🧙🏻♀️#MSWL
❦ @NINETIESRNBjust the concept of black vampires, yes pls! pic.twitter.com/UdeMKymThv
If you’ve got the book, I wanna read it!
I’ll also take any BIPOC fantasy creatures; vampires, werewolves, witches. . . I’m not picky. #MSWL
#MSWL - YA or MG paranormal: vampires, werewolves, oh my! Particularly interested in paranormal from underrepresented points of view and stories that bring something new to the genre. Related: contemp fantasy a la LEGENDBORN, a 2020 fav, too.
contemporary fantasy!! i want it!! ESPECIALLY (really only) if it draws from diverse folklore and/or reimagines evergreen fantasy elements (witches, vampires, chosen ones, etc) with BIPOC at the center of the story 👸🏽🧙🏽♀️🧜🏿♀️
For fantasy, I'm always ready for some fresh witches or vampires, particularly from marginalized creators. I'm not the best fit for high fantasy or sci fi, but if you've got something you'd comp to GIDEON (the writing, the snark, the queer), I'd love to take a look. #MSWL
Now to specifics! I love ALL THE ROMANCE, w/ queer & BIPOC stories prioritized. Give me all your fave tropes starring queer, BIPOC, & QBIPOC characters, including rom coms, historical (more regency f/f PLEASE), contemporary romance, & paranormal w/ witches and/or vampires. #MSWL
