And while I love historical elements, when it comes to my contemporary #MSWL stories I would love ones about history reenactments or something that brings the past to the present in a fun way. Maybe a romance between reenactors?

Geeky YA or adult nonfiction pop culture. #MSWL I'm talking geeky like cosplay, Star Trek, a take on manga or anime (HUGE Sailor Moon fan over here) video/board games, etc.

I feel like I haven't traveled enough outside of the US to have a definite fav yet, But my first favorite was the Jennie Wade house in Gettysburg as a tween because of the tragic love story. #HFChitChat twitter.com/hfchitchat/sta…

I want to add a historical fiction #MSWL as an agent for a story about Jennie Wade. Maybe one that switches between Jennie's tragic story and the present about a woman's experience with the legend surrounding the bullet hole in the door.

Still dying for nonfiction history projects #MSWL adult or YA. Weird history, history of women, fun history, lesser known history, creepy history. History! Not super into war history or battles. I like reading about culture and people.

#MSWL I want stories in adult and YA about geeky topics. Think video games, board games, ren faires, historical reenactors, cosplay, and fanfiction.

Realized I've always liked #horror stories about archeological digs and discoveries where things aren't how they seem. #MSWL

#MSWL I really want a book about Minnie Penney. She was the Nebraska teacher who saved all her students during a deadly blizzard in 1888. She has been nicknamed Nebraska's Fearless Maid. nytimes.com/2018/10/03/obi…

Wish List Update katelynuplinger.com/2019/04/12/wis… pic.twitter.com/r5PDt5krCQ

My updated wish list for those considering #amquerying me. Covers everything from SFF to historical and romance. Pretty much everything I've recently tweeted a #mswl about or wanted to.

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 9 Apr 2019

Right now in young adult historical my #mswl is romance like Suitors and Sabotage and historical fantasy like Enchantée, My Plain Jane, and Jackaby.

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 28 Mar 2019

#MSWL Black Mirror type stories in YA or adult, like the book No One Here is Lonely. Would love some creepy YA mysteries. Mysteries like The Truth Lies here and This is Our Story.

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 25 Mar 2019

#MSWL update! Still looking for some good #horror and other creepy stories and mysteries. In #fantasy would love something not focused on royalty/rebellions to round out my list. Would love some survival stories along the lines of Dry or I Am Still Alive.

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 15 Feb 2019

I love historical fiction but it's an extremely tough market right now. My #mswl is historical that crosses heavily with other genres including romance, fantasy, mystery, and horror in adult and #YA.

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 9 Jan 2019

For those #amquerying I remain open to queries. Genres high on my #mswl for 2019 in adult and YA include horror, historical fantasy, chilling mysteries, and tense stories about survival. In nonfiction would love some weird or fun history.

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 31 Dec 2018

I just started reading this yesterday, but would love stories like this in #YA #contemporary #MSWL I'm drawn to the mystery and drama in it. goodreads.com/book/show/3233…

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 29 Nov 2018

Winter is here. Would love to see a Jack frost #romance in my query box. #mswl

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 19 Nov 2018

In #sciencefiction wouldn't mind a space survival or new planet survival story. Think Adrift by Rob Boffard or Semiosis. Love stories about crashing or landing on unknown planets and the early days of colonization or the journey. #MSWL

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 14 Nov 2018

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

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 30 Oct 2018

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
