“Young Adult: historical fiction, LGBTQ+ romance, a story about a boy band, mysteries and thrillers, magical realism with gorgeous prose, a novel-in-verse, experimental story structure.” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation
-locked room mysteries/thrillers with a big cast of characters
- I like historical-set fiction but only if it is a genre I love (horror, rom com, etc) set in a different time period #MSWL 4/7
speaking editorially for a moment: this is one of the reasons that my general/historical fiction #MSWL includes "immigration stories that are not from Ellis Island."
ditto for Jewish stories--tell me a story that isn't about Ellis or the Holocaust (or the US, for that matter)
⟡ Historical fantasy like JONATHAN STRANGE but from a different culture.
⟡ Anything that comps Claire North.
⟡ Fabulist Urban Spec Fic like China Miéville's PERDITO STREET STATION.

This pandemic and the general greyness of life rn (see my last tweet lol) has made me obsessed with reading ambitious epics with happy endings. Diana Gabaldon, Ken Follett, Deb Harkness...agents, pls send me your upmarket adult historical fantasy/romance! #mswl
Hanna Kim @hannakimwritesWe must acknowledge the fact that there was a point in Japanese history where they tried to wipe out the entire country of Korea. This cannot be swept under the rug.
THIS MUST BE TAUGHT.
This is what I’m looking for in historical fiction. I’d love a YA along the lines of Pachinko #mswl

Thao Le @AgentThaoI would love to get some more adult romcoms that have the high concept hooks and diversity that's been happening in YA romcoms! My adult list is still very bare and I'd love to flesh it out more with some new writers and projects. #mswl
I still want more adult projects! I'm building my romantic tinged adult speculative fiction and romcom list. =) Am also open to select historical, but I'm hoping from something along the veins of Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo #mswl
I loved everything about Sylvie's Love on @PrimeVideo: the 50s Harlem setting, the music scene, the love story. It's made me eager to find more historical romance/women's fiction featuring BIPOC characters. #MSWL
On the lighter side, upmarket fiction & beach reading sans the beach! Historical fiction, romantic comedies, family sagas, I'm open to pretty much anything with humor and heart
For nonfiction: self-help, lifestyle, gardening, decor etc. Historical, especially women or little-known events. No memoirs at this time.
