Historical

Cate Hart @CateHart · Mar 9

I just finished watching The Favourite and I have so many #MSWL wants. I want powerful women in historicals, as opposed to empowered, with power plays and antics, friendships and romance, deep nuanced character relationships and falling outs.

"Whether historical or contemporary, I don’t see enough... life or death drama coming in on submission, and I’d love to." I spoke to @histnovel for the @histnovsoc magazine #MSWL #literaryagent #askagent historicalnovelsociety.org/ask-the-agent-…

"Historical novels where plot & setting have to work together i.e. NIGHTINGALE, ARCADIA, GIRL YOU LEFT BEHIND. I want a very plotty historical. Beatriz Xilliams-Esque." @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

There are lots of things I'm on the lookout for, but right now I'd *really* love to find a high-concept crime/thriller, a love story and an upmarket historical #MSWL

I love historical fiction but it's an extremely tough market right now. My #mswl is historical that crosses heavily with other genres including romance, fantasy, mystery, and horror in adult and #YA.
