Number 22 about Australia would make a great historical fiction. I loved RABBIT PROOF FENCE. #MSWL

In mystery, again, I love historicals! Especially those with strong women who kick ass and take names. Think Deanna Raybourn and Sherry Thomas.

Now for some specifics! In romance, I am particularly interested in historical romances, and would love to see more diversity in my submissions. Let's see the Regency, Victorian, and Edwardian periods through different eyes.

Who's up for some Friday afternoon #mswl tweets? Here are some specific things I'll be looking for at BookEnds!

As a general reminder, I rep adult romance, mystery, women's, and upmarket fiction, and have a deep and abiding love for historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction, especially on topics like the literary world, food, material culture, & social history.

here is my current #mswl:
YA romance - all genres
single title romance - all genres (see yesterday's tweets for what "single title" means)
category/series romance - contemp or historical
womens fiction with romance
NA romance - contemp or sci-fi
LGBTQ romance in any of the above

I would love a modern YA Samson and Delilah, any genre. I'd also love an M/M historical, modern, or fantasy retelling of David and Jonathan #MSWL

#Querying? Send me your contemporary #MG, especially if it plays with structure like Jack Cheng's See You in the Cosmos. Send me your historical fantasy #YA, especially if it has a multicultural cast like Heidi Heilig's The Girl From Everywhere. #MSWL

#MSWL: #historical #YA that has a fun, fresh, gossipy feel & a diverse cast. Currently reading (& LOVING 😍) A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE & also enjoyed the CW’s Reign

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Feb 7

#MSWL Send me a #mglit or #YAlit story that reclaims women's/girls' voices in history. Not necessarily a rewrite/historical, although those are fine, too. Might be a side story to a larger plot.

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · Feb 6

Maybe some *funny* historical fiction? That's a thing, right? #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Feb 1

I want a literary book that is not contemporary. Give me a literary fantasy, magical realism, historical fiction. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Feb 1

I want a historical that feels historical: from the writing, to the voice. My favorite authors are J. Anderson Coats, Ruta Sepetys, Ann Rinaldi. Recent favorite books: Wolf Hollow. #MSWL

"Historical fiction along the lines of THE MINIATURIST or THE GOLEM AND THE JINNI." @kurestinarmada #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Just finished this stunner of a read from @themackenzilee--I absolutely devoured it! I LOVE historical fiction, and it's exciting to see it having a comeback in the YA space. Query-ers--if you have historical that feels fresh/juicy/fun/exciting, PLEASE send my way! #MSWL

Carlisa Cramer @carlisajc · Jan 30

Looking for great MG and YA historical fiction! Show me a new angle of history through the lens of compelling characters #MSWL

Justin Wells @Justin_941 · Jan 29

Hey, #writers! Quick rundown of my submission changes (1/29/18):

- No longer accepting middle grade queries

- No longer accepting YA science fiction queries

- I am now accepting adult romance - this can be contemporary & historical!

Query here: QueryMe.Online/Justin_Wells

Ali Herring @HerringAli · Jan 29

Make me swoon and keep it sweet! I’m looking for wholesome, inspirational category romance. Can be contemporary, historical or make-my-heart-race suspense, as well as writers who understand the expectations of the line, and can provide great comp titles. #R #MSWL

Linda Camacho @LindaRandom · Jan 26

Would love a great contemporary or historical romance featuring fat protagonists or any other marginalized person (disabled, LGBTQ, POC)! #MSWL
