MG + YA Historical Fiction/Historical Fantasy—I am a history buff myself + would particularly love to see stories which highlight a marginalized narrative that hasn’t been explored as much as the white narrative has in this space. #MSWL
Mermaids! PB, MG, YA, GNs.✨🧜♀️ I'm not looking for an epic fantasy, or a story in which someone discovers they’re a mermaid, or a romance in which a mermaid falls in love with a human. I'd love for it to be something a non-genre reader could get into. #MSWL
I'm still searching for a fantasy of any sorts inspired by Korean culture (this is for my historical fantasy K-drama lovers!), since this has been a very personal wish of mine as an agent for a very long time! #mswl
What my inbox is hungry for: Some adult Crime Fiction, Dark Comedy, and Thrillers. Maybe some unique YA fantasy. Also children’s Mystery and Fantasy. A killer True Crime book would make my life. Are you writing one? #MSWL @VictressLit
Nivia Evans @NiviaEvansHistory-inspired epic fantasy with intricate, detailed worldbuilding. I'm talking Hannibal's march on Rome, the rise of Shaka Zulu, Sultana Shajar al-Durr of Egypt, etc.
Look to history and give me some new epics! #mswl
I just got up to stretch and saw a Salem Witch Trial NF book. Can someone please write me Salem Witch Trials but in a fantasy world? You'd have to know the history leading up to the witch trials, and then figure out for your new fantasy world, but SO COOL. #MSWL
Dark fantasy or magical realism à la Pan’s Labryinth is another love of mine. I’ve been reading the novelization by Guillermo del Toro and Cornelia Funke, and it has that creepy, ethereal feel of magical realism and folklore mixed with a dash of horror. #MSWL Again YA/MG ONLY.
