Hi! Good morning! This is your semi-annual reminder that while I'm looking for diversity and own voices across the board, I am particularly interested in seeing submissions in the mystery and historical romance genres. Please send! #mswl
SYTYCW @HarlequinSYTYCWDo you write #HistoricalRomance ? Find out what the @HarlequinBooks Historical editors are looking for! bit.ly/2S96kX0
There's a lot of overlap here with my own historical romance #mswl. I have been begging for what feels like forever for a Regency centered on South Asian protags. And a 1950s historical romance? *swoons*

Atlas Obscura @atlasobscuraOnce known as “the Black Eden of Michigan,” Idlewild was a thriving African American resort community founded in 1912. From roughly 1920 to the mid-1960s, Idlewild was one of the premier holiday venues for African Americans. trib.al/dGBUYUB
Someone write me a historical romance set at Idlewild. #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.
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.
Norma @normajeanesaysIt's been 2 years and NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING has made it to my inbox! #MSWL twitter.com/normajeanesays…
I'm going to keep shouting about this too until it shows up in my inbox. DIVERSE HISTORICAL ROMANCE PLEASE AND THANK YOU. #mswl
If pumpkin spice lattes are back, autumn must be right around the corner, which means I'm jumping on the spooky reads bandwagon. Send me your upmarket, creepy stories: witches, ghosts, other things that go bump in the night. How about a gothic romance, you say? Yes! #mswl
#MSWL call for more historical romance, especially diverse stories from #ownvoices authors! I adore Regencies and Scotsmen, but I'd also love to see some new time periods, new settings, and new voices. Bonus points if your characters make me laugh.
#amquerying writers, I only have 3 queries left! Send more! I'm currently looking for adult mystery, romance (esp historical & diverse historical), women's fiction, and upmarket projects, as well as nonfiction on the topics of food, material culture, & social history. #mswl
