Historical is hard in YA and Adult but ohhhh, I love it so. Tell me a great story of under-studied women, events, and areas of history. Give me spies and queens, codebreakers and slice of life, THE ALICE NETWORK and OUTRUN THE MOON. #mswl

I’m focusing a lot in Adult as well—women’s fiction, fantasy, and historical. With WF I want to see upmarket book club fiction (ELEANOR OLIPHANT) and romcoms (MEET CUTE). I want lyrical, historically-inspired fantasy (EMPIRE OF SAND, Juliet Marillier, anything witches). #mswl

Very specific: A, YA, or MG about a painter (or apprentice to, or child of) during the 1666 London Fire. Straight HF or hist fantasy #mswl

Currently listening to THE WEIGHT OF INK, which is about a female Jewish scribe in 1660s London. Talk about specific!

Send send send! 1660s England is FULL of amazing stories just waiting to be told. #mswl

I'm seeking more contemporary and historical lately––with accessible voices, character-driven plot, heart, humor, family/friendship/sibling relationships at the center. #mswl scribblesandwanderlust.wordpress.com/2018/01/01/msw…

Holidays won't stop me from actively seeking contemporary, fantasy, & historical in YA/Adult, select MG mystery & fantasy 📚 manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/laur… #mswl

Fantasy inspired by historical events & parallel narratives surrounding historical events really pull me in. A/YA/MG #mswl

#MSWLaesthetic Compelling, emotional Fiddler on the Roof retelling/-inspired #histfic YA/A. What happened to Chava? The family in NYC? #mswl

- Fiddler on the Roof retelling/expansion/inspired
- YA Crusades histfic or fantasy
- YA Night Circus #mswl

Hunting for a great fantasy -- could even be the historical variety (SHADOWFELL, WINNER'S CURSE, AND I DARKEN). Vikings encouraged ;) #mswl

Shakespeare retellings (in YA or A, contemp/histfic/fantasy, diversity encouraged) would be an absolute joy to read. #mswl
