#MSWL I LOVE literary/historical with a touch of folklore or magic like The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden or The Mapmaker's War by Ronlyn Domingue... manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/rach…
I'm officially open for queries. #MSWL Christian romance projects only (contemporary, historical, or romantic suspense). Want stellar writing, strong characters, unique plots.
Paste query & 1st 10 pages into body of email to candee.fick (at) anaiahpress (dot) com. @anaiahpress
In romance: I love quirky characters and am far more likely to be drawn to a story that makes me laugh than one that makes me cry. In historical, I really would love to see some diverse stories. Give me South Asians falling in love in London during the Regency, for example. #mswl
Time for some #mswl tweets! Here are just some of the things I'm looking for right now.
In general, I rep adult mystery, romance, women's fiction, some SF/F, and upmarket projects, and love to see historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction.
Happy #MSWL Day! I'm looking for commercial, literary and upmarket fiction for both adult and YA. I love mysteries, historical, magical realism, myth retellings, novel retellings, psychological thrillers/suspense, psychological/literary horror...
#MSWL As always, I'm so in love with YA. Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Contemporary, Historical, etc.. The things I'm not all that into are actually time travel (in any age range) and alternate dimensions (as of right now...little tired of them...).
Give me badass females and POC in your historical! Big plus if it's LGBTQ+ #MSWL just don't give me Shakespeare, Henry VIII, or Greek gods - a little worn out on WWII, as well, unless it has a totally new POV
I want Urban Fantasy, Fantasy, Historical - all inspired or utilizing non American/European mythology. Give me monsters and legends and traditions from worlds we don't often see in the mainstream. #MSWL
I also want to add that I'm open to all kinds of historical fic--thrillers, fantasy, mysteries, women's fic, YA, etc, etc. I JUST LOVE BEING IN A DIFFERENT TIME PERIOD. #mswl
For historical fic: fave time periods are 19th century and 20th century (especially 1900s-1960s). Bonus points for female protags defying the then order. Double bonus points if MCs are 1st/2nd gen Americans. #MSWL
#MSWL historical fiction from all around the world (I love my western-front WWII but there's more to life than that!); campus novels, especially about first-gen students; high-concept/speculative lit fiction like Age of Miracles or Station 11; family dramas always and forever
