Historical

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · 1d

Adult historical fantasy (show me a location or pivotal moment in history I've never seen in SFF)
Contemporary YA (show me how powerful& combustible teenage relationships are)
Middle grade sci fi, contemporary, or fantasy (I'm pretty wide open; nothing is off the table!) #mswl

I'm craving THE CITY OF BRASS-style rich and intricate fantasy, with complicated family dynamics, stark political tension, sweeping romance, and hard loss; stories that (respectfully) wed historical inspiration and folklore with unexpected magic and major stakes #MSWL

Iโ€™m actively acquiring historical romance set in the Regency and Victorian eras. Highlanders and Vikings are also welcome! Digital and print ops available, depending on platform. Query w/ proposal or full here: entangledpublishing.submittable.com/submit/ #historical #romance #amwriting #MSWL

would also LOVE dark GN with creatures from lesser known legends/cultures

on that note, give me historical GN! Give me time periods in new places with new people and their part in that event. I'd love POC and how they affected certain wars/spy networks/etc. #amagenting #querytip

Last up, @ktgreenst wants a revenge plot, sweeping and/or funny family epics, meaty and multi perspective books like THE ART OF FIELDING, fresh campus novels, conversation starters a la SUCH A FUN AGE and historical fiction cum THE PARIS WIFE. Read more: bit.ly/2JfHm4f

And @a_cochran says: Iโ€™m looking for quality crime/thriller/speculative/SFF (would love a good epic fantasy), literary novels, historical that doesnโ€™t wear its research too heavily, and anything with a strong concept that hooks me from the first page bit.ly/3btDWXS

#MSWL. Please send me some light, fun reading! Romantic comedies & uplifting women's fiction. Historical fiction set in glamorous locales and a glamorized past like THE GIRL IN WHITE GLOVES or AND THEY CALLED IT CAMELOT.

P.S. Literary Agency @PSLiterary · Mar 7

โ€œIn non-fiction, I want to read about historical funny women, your Lucille Balls and Bea Arthurs. For humor in fiction, think the next Mrs. Maisel.โ€ @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Brittany Booker @bookers_32 · Mar 5

#mswl I'm looking for romantic comedies, and slow-burning romances. No non-fiction, historical novels or memoirs. I'm very selective with YA/NA but will take a look if the plot pulls me in!

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Mar 3

Another #mswl for today: historical fiction set in the 20th century.
