Historical

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 30 Oct 2018

I love historical fiction and there isn't nearly enough of it in #YA fiction. Would love to see more #YA #HistoricalFiction in my inbox whether it's general historical, fantasy, romance, mystery, or something else. #MSWL

"Would love an East/West Germany or Berlin Wall historical with a romantic hook. Something sweeping and heartbreaking." @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

ISO of #WOC in historical romance, especially Regency or Highlander, traditional mystery, cozy mystery, domestic thriller, science fiction, fantasy, supernatural, southern gothic. #MSWL

#MSWL A big, dynamic historical. Think THE QUEEN OF THE NIGHT or THE CRIMSON PETAL AND THE WHITE.

"Historical novels where plot & setting work together i.e. NIGHTINGALE, ARCADIA, GIRL YOU LEFT BEHIND. I’m not interested in writers using historical novels to tell me how much research they’ve done. I want a very plotty historical. Beatriz Xilliams-Esque." @carlywatters #MSWL

Going to throw this out there early. Once Halloween is over I would love some Christmas themed stories, especially in historical romance in adult and YA. #MSWL

And finally, some historical fiction is much needed. #MSWL

Still on the hunt for a #YA or adult historical, whether it's straight #historical, #fantasy, or has other speculative elements. Love a good romance subplot. Been craving Ice Age and early human stories as far as ancient history goes as well. #MSWL

"Historical fiction along the lines of THE MINIATURIST or THE GOLEM AND THE JINNI." @kurestinarmada #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Historical novel based on Marguerite de Bressieux. Go. #MSWL

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 2 Oct 2018

#MSWL Since it's October, I would love something gothic and creepy, a dark fantasy, or a historical in #YA or #A. Or something like Into the Drowning Deep. Loved that anticipation of waiting to discover the truth followed by horror.

How about some middle grade #MSWL today?

- Classic feel + animal POV (ONE AND ONLY IVAN, PAX)
- Fantasy, both lighthearted and dark (Thickety series, UNICORN QUEST)
- Quirky + puzzles + complex plots (Mysterious Benedict Society, YORK)
- Historical (WAR THAT SAVED MY LIFE)

T.S. Ferguson @TeeEss · 27 Sep 2018

More QPOC books and authors please! Contemporary, historical and/or fantasy! #mswl

Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymonds · 26 Sep 2018

- Blended genres, especially with historical settings (MY LADY JANE, GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE, Jackaby series)
- Groundbreakers that make you say wow (THE HATE YOU GIVE, CODE NAME VERITY)

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 26 Sep 2018

#MSWL tragic historical romances with some basis in truth/history. Think The Most Beautiful Woman in Florence, the Violinist of Venice, or even Flight of the Sparrow. #A or #YA

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 25 Sep 2018

#MSWL also I want an ice age/Paleolithic story, whether straight historical or with fantasy or other speculative elements in adult and YA, preferably with at least a dash of romance. QueryMe.Online/QueryKatelyn

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 25 Sep 2018

#MSWL Dying for a historical romance (with or without fantasy elements) with romance along the lines of A Court of Thorns and Roses in YA or adult. If you have this, please query me here: QueryMe.Online/QueryKatelyn
