Historical

Carly Watters @carlywatters · Sep 12

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

more baseball for children and teens, please! (I would love a middle grade about Negro league baseball and/or the AAGPBL – either historical fiction or non-fiction.) #mswl

The Hate You Give (Angie Thomas) meets Joan of Arc. Historical fiction based on real young women kicking ass and taking names #mswl

#MSWL Historical Fiction in YA! I'm so in love with Ruby from Cold Mountain. I love her voice and if you could put that into a YA Gunslinger Girl in Colonial times, I'd be so in love. <3

Also, I've started watching Reign, and I hate to admit it but I really miss court intrigue and historical YA. 😭 But can I get Greer's story being in love with the cook instead of Mary, Queen of Scots royalty like story? Greer is definitely my favorite romance. #MSWL

#MSWL call for more historical romance, especially diverse stories from #ownvoices authors! I adore Regencies and Scotsmen, but I'd also love to see some new time periods, new settings, and new voices. Bonus points if your characters make me laugh.

Would love to acquire a YA or MG with a strong female friendship like Idgie and Rachel’s in #FriedGreenTomatoes. Bonus points if it’s historical! #MSWL
