Michael Warburton @MichaelWarbur17THE FORTY ELEPHANTS were an all-female gang active in London from the 1870’s to 1950’s.
They operated from the Elephant & Castle, raided West End stores, posed as housemaids to burgle wealthy homes & were expert at evading capture.

Add a dash of magic, even better!!
More YA urban fantasy
MG adventure and mystery and puzzles to solve
GN for MG and YA
LFPL @LFPLOn September 25, 1905, LFPL's Western Branch opened. It was the first public library in the U.S. to serve and be fully staffed by African-Americans, and was headed up by librarian Thomas Fountain Blue. Photo c/o "The Kentucky African American Encyclopedia." pic.twitter.com/bvZjC3YrcA
Amazing. Y’all I have a beautiful WPA Kentucky pack horse librarian novel about to go on submission, but I’d love to find a historical or WF historical inspired by this! #mswl
Alyssa!!! Cole @AlyssaColeLitI hope that the biggest takeaway from yesterday in Romancelandia is that romance readers are clearly well-versed in the diversity of the Regency, are excited to see more of it, and trad pubs should be acquiring diverse historicals written by POC/marginalized authors.
This is my evergreen #MSWL
You guys I am at the 90% mark of The Huntress and next I'm reading We Rule the Night to feed my Night Witches obsession. But what I'd really love to find #MSWL is adult and YA ft other female pilots - hello Bessie Coleman - whether historical or fantasy
I just finished watching The Favourite and I have so many #MSWL wants. I want powerful women in historicals, as opposed to empowered, with power plays and antics, friendships and romance, deep nuanced character relationships and falling outs.
