Historical

Lucy Carson @LucyACarson · 13 Dec 2018

The first few eps of #marvelousmrsmaisel have put me in the mood for a historical novel set in Paris... BUT I want it to have suspense/mystery elements, and lean literary in style. Universe, halp?! #MSWL

#mswl: historical (1900s), romcom, immigrant stories, diverse voices, high society, light suspense or speculative hook, campus setting, southern, complex female friendships, family dramas, gothic, nostalgia. Upmarket with commercial hook. Agented only.

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

#historicalromance is always on my #MSWL in YA and adult, especially this time of year. Wouldn't mind some holiday stories.

Mystery: historical--again, especially diverse historical--cozies, and mysteries with so much atmosphere you can practically wring it out of the pages. If your setting is integral to your story, I want to see it! #mswl

Time for some #mswl tweets! Here's a peek at what I'd love to see in my query inbox. Romance: historical--especially diverse historical--rom suspense, and contemp romcom. As a general rule, I'm far more likely to fall for a story that makes me laugh than one that makes me cry.

“YA like MY LADY JANE or GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE—playing with historical w/a fun, contemporary voice” @kurestinarmada #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Also in #YA looking for historical (ish) projects. Something in the vein of THE GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE. Nothing that takes itself too seriously #MSWL

Writers if you have a YA historical that is anytime between ancient Babylon to Ancient Greece that is right up my alley #mswl

Hey #writingcommunity! I'm craving some #YA and #MG books that deal with underrepresented chronic illness. All sub-genres welcome, but particularly a fantasy/historical twist. Tweet me your pitches! 💕📚 @ManuscriptWList #MSWL #query

I love historical fiction and there isn't nearly enough of it in #YA fiction. Would love to see more #YA #HistoricalFiction in my inbox whether it's general historical, fantasy, romance, mystery, or something else. #MSWL

"Would love an East/West Germany or Berlin Wall historical with a romantic hook. Something sweeping and heartbreaking." @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

ISO of #WOC in historical romance, especially Regency or Highlander, traditional mystery, cozy mystery, domestic thriller, science fiction, fantasy, supernatural, southern gothic. #MSWL

Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween · 22 Oct 2018

#MSWL A big, dynamic historical. Think THE QUEEN OF THE NIGHT or THE CRIMSON PETAL AND THE WHITE.
