Historical

Amy Stapp @AmyStappNY · 3d

#MSWL I’m most eager to find twisty, intelligent suspense, upmarket book club fiction, women’s fic that explores friendship and multi-generational ties, light magical realism, and historical fiction from a new perspective or setting. I want more diverse/underrepresented voices!

Loving the new submissions procedures at 3 Seas! Personally, I would love to see an @SHO_Homeland or @TheAmericansFX thriller hit my inbox... especially if there's a romance or a YA hook. Also, would love an American-set historical and of course, ROMANCE & WF of any kind. #MSWL

#mswl I'd love to see: Adult HistFic featuring the Schuyler Sisters or is otherwise connected to our Founding Fathers. Also seeking Adult FBI/Police Procedural, with humor, and a Female lead.

Happy Tuesday!

My most wanted wishlist:

Inspirational romantic suspense (55k words & 85-100K words)
Inspirational historical romance (70k words, would love to see a regency + Westerns and 85-100k words)
Amish (contemporary romance and romantic suspense 55k words)

Two weeks since I finished #NeflixKingdom, and I STILL can't stop thinking about it. I'm so in the mood for a YA fantasy with sociopolitical commentary, a lush non-Western historical setting, well-rounded characters, and ZOMBIES. Lots and lots of zombies.

Attention #YA writers! A few things I’d love to see in my inbox:
1) Millennial nuns (I’ll always be waiting for this one)
2) 20th cent. historical set during one of the dictatorships in either Chile or Argentina
And one more that deserves its own tweet....#MSWL #wishlistwednesday

overall: I represent mostly-adult, mostly-fiction across the literary-commercial spectrum from weirdo short stories to "book club" novels to historical fiction to trade romance. I *rarely* read thrillers or hard SFF. You can query me right here: aevitascreative.com/contact/ #MSWL

YA:
-still looking for great contemporary (or historical) YA thrillers & mysteries!

#mswl If you have an Adult #histfic about the Schuyler sisters or otherwise connected to the Founding Father’s, I’d love to see it!

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · Jul 8

At the risk of seeing my inbox explode... #amquerying folks I am not getting enough Adult Romance submissions! Please send all the contemporary and historicals my way (I'm not the best match for Rom Suspense or Paranormal) #mswl

Ashley Herring Blake @ashleyhblake · Jul 3

Historical adult f/f or f/nb queer rom coms. All of them. Pick a century, a decade, I’m here for it. #MSWL

Thanks to @alyzaliu I'm now obsessed with #TheRomanceofTigerandRose. I'd love to see more of this type of lighthearted romcom but with a unique historical and/or fantasy premise!!! #MSWL

Samantha Wekstein @SWekstein · Jul 2

Historical fiction that is not set in the US or Europe. #MSWL
