As for historical: I'm always on the lookout for previously untold stories and unheard perspectives, particularly those of forgotten/misunderstood women a la THE PARIS WIFE, WEYWARD, THE CHRISTIE AFFAIR.

I'm also manifesting something heist-y! Whether that's contemporary and hilarious like COUNTERFEIT or a historical masterpiece like THE HOUSEKEEPERS (coming this summer), I'm open to anything in this space.

My women's fiction list is a little full; I'll be focusing on suspense, thrillers, book club historical, and contemporary novels with an edge for the first half of 2023.

this is maybe a little specific but i'd really love to find some historical fiction or nonfiction about the AIDS epidemic and the activism / community care / political radicalism that organized around it/as a result of it #mswl

Also if you have anything “inspired” by these stories, I’m also open to historical fiction or historical fantasy

I’m really looking for a historical female-driven warrior epic reminiscent of Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon Stories—always ready to root for the unlikely heroine!

Similarly, I would love to see a Gilded Age Historical Fiction submission exploring witchcraft and female family/friendship relationships—think Practical Magic meets The Social Graces

If you have a sweeping, extravagant historical family saga similar to Downton Abbey or Belgravia, but spanning the generations, send it my way! The drama, the romance, the heartbreak, the opulence—that’s what I’d love to see!

In Adult Historical Fiction, I'd like to see:
 
- A pre-WWII, mainly Pre-20th century setting
-Multi-Generational storylines
-Previously underrepresented POVs
- Romantic undertones
- Female driven narratives

All! The! Romance!

I’m open to almost all* Adult Romance, w/ the following sub-genres as some personal favs: Historical, Suspense, & Paranormal. That being said, I'd love to read anything and everything in between!
 
*Sci-Fi & Inspirational are not a fit

My left arm for historical fiction about Abigail Adams and this letter she wrote to John: "I desire you would remember the ladies... Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember, all men would be tyrants if they could." #MSWL

Historical fiction! I’m a big Kate Quinn fan, and am looking for stories w/ a similar vibe - something that can make the past feel accessible/ compelling to a modern audience. I devoured THE CHRISTIE AFFAIR and THE WIDOW OF ROSE HOUSE - give me all the historical glitz and drama!
