Historical

Kortney Price @kortney_price · 12 Sep 2018

I would LOVE a super atmospheric historical story featuring a mystery or an element of the paranormal or fantastical. Think The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd #mswl

#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…

Fun, flirty, feminist, queer historical fiction! Think A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO VICE & VIRTUE. #mswl

Candee Fick @CandeeFick · 12 Sep 2018

I'm officially open for queries. #MSWL Christian romance projects only (contemporary, historical, or romantic suspense). Want stellar writing, strong characters, unique plots.

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.

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

And I like a little genre mixing, so send me your upmarket historical mysteries and psychological sci-fi horror and magical realism retelling of Hamlet. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

For YA, I typically go for a contemporary story, though I also like historical and mysteries. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

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...

Kelly 📚 @LitAgentKelly · 12 Sep 2018

#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...).

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · 12 Sep 2018

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

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · 12 Sep 2018

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

Susan Velazquez @susannprogress · 12 Sep 2018

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

Susan Velazquez @susannprogress · 12 Sep 2018

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

Melissa Danaczko @mad2034 · 12 Sep 2018

#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

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · 12 Sep 2018

Here are the genres I'm open to: Fantasy (all kinds), Contemporary, Cont. Romance, select Romance, light Sci Fi, Magical Realism, Historical.

Upper MG, YA, and Adult only

I want LGBTQ+ and diverse characters, themes, and worlds. I want mental health and disability rep. #MSWL

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 12 Sep 2018

Lynn Johnston @lynnjohnstonlit · 12 Sep 2018

Speaking of nonfiction for young people, query me with:

--Self help from columnist of mainstream publication or popular blog
