K, back to the query box. But ya, BEGGING YOU for my LGBTQ+ #HistoricalFiction (#HF) 😉 #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Jun 29

I'd love to see India #HF. Caste systems. Occupation. Everyday life MG and YA dealt with (and maybe STILL deal with!). Also, #HF Australia, too, (though I'm looking for something lighter there rather than, say, the movie Australia). I'd love aboriginal #ownvoices #HF. #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Jun 29

OH! And another American one I wouldn't mind: Native American stories. Hint, not just #HF I'm looking for there. #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Jun 29

I want rebellions, small town adventures, jungle or desert escapades. I want slow burns and I'm okay with some stories that make me cry (in fact, please try to make me cry!). #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Jun 29

If you must go American, I'd love #HF Hawaii or Alaska. I'd DEFF love South America stories. #MSWL

I also see a ton of US/British. I want new locations, new historic events for some reason neglected in history class. Not interested in US Civil War or Old West. Give me India, Philippines, China, Japan, N/S Korea, Saudi Arabia (FYI, I want contemporary for this, too). #MSWL

I see SO MUCH WWI and WWII plots. GIVE ME LGBTQ+! What happened to nurses who smuggle jews from concentration camps and fall in love? What about soldiers on the front lines who turn lovers? I WANT THEM. This includes Trans characters #MSWL

Writers! We are looking for crime and thrillers (with a unique twist--the darker the better!), historical fiction (not romance at this stage), narrative non-fiction and diverse voices!

#MSWL an incredibly lush, romantic YA fantasy; novels with "evil boyfriends" (think Damon Salvatore); romantic comedies; millennial focused non-fiction, ripped from the headlines historicals

Julianna Haubner @jhaubner2 · Jun 26

oh well look at that it's time for my periodic and unprompted scream into the twitterverse that what i really want more than anything is some GREAT HISTORICAL FICTION STARRING REAL WOMEN WHO MIGHT NOT BE AS WIDELY-REMEMBERED AS THEY SHOULD! #MSWL

Victoria Marini @LitAgentMarini · Jun 26

And, as always, #MSWL utterly gripping literary or upmarket commercial adult fiction - be in speculative or historical or contemporary - with strong stories rooted in secrets.

Victoria Marini @LitAgentMarini · Jun 26

Also #MSWL High-concept YA contemporary or historical with easily digested strong hooks (light or dark). Everything from HEIST SOCIETY to SAVE THE DATE to WE WERE LIARS...

Justin Wells @Justin_941 · Jun 22

As of this week, my query box is pretty much empty! Perfect time to get your queries in!

Looking for: Diverse YA contemporary, YA horror (scary/psychological), YA + Adult historical fiction (early American, 15-16th century european), and Adult romance (no erotica)!

Laura Crockett @LECrockett

Very specific: A, YA, or MG about a painter (or apprentice to, or child of) during the 1666 London Fire. Straight HF or hist fantasy #mswl

Currently listening to THE WEIGHT OF INK, which is about a female Jewish scribe in 1660s London. Talk about specific!

Send send send! 1660s England is FULL of amazing stories just waiting to be told. #mswl
