Historical

#historicalromance is always on my #MSWL in YA and adult, especially this time of year. Wouldn't mind some holiday stories.

Mystery: historical--again, especially diverse historical--cozies, and mysteries with so much atmosphere you can practically wring it out of the pages. If your setting is integral to your story, I want to see it! #mswl

Time for some #mswl tweets! Here's a peek at what I'd love to see in my query inbox. Romance: historical--especially diverse historical--rom suspense, and contemp romcom. As a general rule, I'm far more likely to fall for a story that makes me laugh than one that makes me cry.

Also in #YA looking for historical (ish) projects. Something in the vein of THE GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE. Nothing that takes itself too seriously #MSWL

Writers if you have a YA historical that is anytime between ancient Babylon to Ancient Greece that is right up my alley #mswl

Hey #writingcommunity! I'm craving some #YA and #MG books that deal with underrepresented chronic illness. All sub-genres welcome, but particularly a fantasy/historical twist. Tweet me your pitches! 💕📚 @ManuscriptWList #MSWL #query

I love historical fiction and there isn't nearly enough of it in #YA fiction. Would love to see more #YA #HistoricalFiction in my inbox whether it's general historical, fantasy, romance, mystery, or something else. #MSWL

"Would love an East/West Germany or Berlin Wall historical with a romantic hook. Something sweeping and heartbreaking." @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

ISO of #WOC in historical romance, especially Regency or Highlander, traditional mystery, cozy mystery, domestic thriller, science fiction, fantasy, supernatural, southern gothic. #MSWL

#MSWL A big, dynamic historical. Think THE QUEEN OF THE NIGHT or THE CRIMSON PETAL AND THE WHITE.

"Historical novels where plot & setting work together i.e. NIGHTINGALE, ARCADIA, GIRL YOU LEFT BEHIND. I’m not interested in writers using historical novels to tell me how much research they’ve done. I want a very plotty historical. Beatriz Xilliams-Esque." @carlywatters #MSWL

Going to throw this out there early. Once Halloween is over I would love some Christmas themed stories, especially in historical romance in adult and YA. #MSWL

And finally, some historical fiction is much needed. #MSWL

Still on the hunt for a #YA or adult historical, whether it's straight #historical, #fantasy, or has other speculative elements. Love a good romance subplot. Been craving Ice Age and early human stories as far as ancient history goes as well. #MSWL
