Alternate History

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Nov 1

I'm a fan of fantasy, but specifically would LOVE to see more contemporary fantasy right now. Looking for something that is just fun to read--the perfect escape. Also would be open to alternate historical fantasy. #YA #MSWL

If I was an agent I think something that would be on the #mswl would be a Pirates of the Caribbean style YA except it's pirates from colonized lands going after the British Empire (@ericsmithrocks plz find this book and rep it thank you) pic.twitter.com/ge9r0SeIUA

Replying to @runwithskizzers

For years I’ve been wanting alternate history where North and/or South America, Africa, etc., conquered and colonized Europe instead of other way around. I’ve pondered it but can’t quite visualize the full scope of the differences. I’d love to see how writers envision it. #MSWL

I smell an #alternatehistory novel! In 1916 there was a proposed Amendment to US Constitution to put all acts of war to a national vote, & anyone voting yes would have to register as a volunteer for service in US Army huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/04/ame… #MSWL #WritingPrompt #StoryStarter

An alternate history with incredible worldbuilding like @jessica_shea's BORN WICKED series. Still one of my favorite reads this decade #MSWL

I have the sudden strong urge to read a historical fantasy or alternate history YA starring a young female scientist like Marie Curie. #mswl

You know what. Give me an alt-history about the rise of a personality in a world-spanning Terrorist Cult with lots of badass vehicles #MSWL

#MSWL @CuriosityQuills alternate history and Regency and ancient historical romance ala Burning Bright and Kiya

You know what else I want, #MSWL? Lush costumes and glamour, forests and intrigue. Both historical and in alternate worlds. Adult, YA, MG.

Marisa DiNovis @dinovisms · 8 Feb 2017

Historical and/or alt history YA with sweeping settings, a la AND I DARKEN and GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE. LGBTQ+ mcs too! #MSWL
