Southern gothic has been claimed so much by white writers when some of my favorite southern gothic literature is by black authors so would love to see the submissions I get really reflect the diversity of the south and of vampires, haha. #mswl

Some of the first vampire myths and folktales actually come from non-white / western cultures so ☺️🧛🏾‍♀️…

Speaking of which this would make a super fascinating book like reading vampirism myths and folktales around the world and studying vampires x race relations so someone should write it and send to me cause I so see the potential #mswl. My list is gonna be so weird and I’m ready

There's always something so fun about genre novels that explore the regular people who live alongside the supernatural. Their frustrations.

IE: Patrick Ness' brilliant The Rest Of Us Just Live Here.

Like, there's a familiar in What We Do In the Shadows who is like 80+ years old, and is still saying "any day now."

Imagine a father figure in a YA novel who is a familiar, and his wildly frustrated family. Does the teen become a slayer?

Anyhow, send this to me someone. #MSWL

I've been watching the TV adaptation of What We Do in the Shadows (it's brilliant), and I'm just obsessed with the world of the familiars, the humans serving the vampires.

I would DEVOUR a vampire novel from the perspective of familiar. Who is maybe tired of waiting? #MSWL

#MSWL LATINX VAMPIRES! (would be great if the author used latinx cultural connection to death as an element of the story). #POC.
