Kelly Thomas @KellyThomasLitI’m recently obsessed with Norse Mythology and Viking culture. If you have a book (nonfiction, fiction or even a children’s book) in this vein, I want to see it! A YA or MG coming-of-age Viking-era historical fiction would be amazing! Inbox me Kellyt@serendipitylit.com #writers
it has finally happened! i have a #mswl!
take a peek and see if i'm a good candidate for your submission 🐱👀🤠❣️
🌟Well-researched historical novels featuring underrepresented people and time periods
Trevor Henderson @slimyswampghostNeed more sprawling historical / period horror. Let me piece together what the insidious supernatural presence is through it's malign influence on the past all the way to the present day. Mix fact and fiction, get really weird with it.
Ohhhhh! #MSWL, pretty please
Reminder: I am open for queries for the Month of March. Check out my #MSWL Link in bio. #writersoftwitter #writers
🥳I am officially open to queries🥳
Let's chat about the tropes I'm looking for, and what makes me dive into a manuscript! Here’s my #MSWL for more info on the books I want to help people discover!
"I love historical fiction and am especially fascinated by lesser-known historical occurrences or anything really specific. I'm a sucker for a dual timeline too."
Seeking compelling historical fiction by underrepresented authors, particularly those with not-so-well known stories.
Seeking a new twist on a common trope. #MSWL
5. YA historical fiction about teens involved in labor activism movements (like a fictionalized eliseo medina in the delano grape strike)
"Seeking generational stories of parenthood and family with non-binary and/or trans characters in the commercial or historical adult fiction genre (ie. heavy with plot!)"
Though I'm still closed to queries & will open BRIEFLY in April for Hist Fic & YA Myst/Thrillers, here's my full #MSWL. I'll open again after my brief April opening & will want everything on this list and more! So work on your queries and edit those pages!
Happy #MSWL day! I’m on the hunt for a rare gem of a historical or upmarket Caribbean story/voice steeped in island culture with an immersive setting.
I'm still closed until about April. BUT...I'll reopen for about 1 week only & will give advance notice here. I'll be looking for ONLY HISTORICAL ROMANCE (Regency, preferred) & YA Mystery/Thriller. Strong desire for BIPOC & LGBTQ authors/stories. So get those queries ready!
It’s #MSWL Day! Find my profile here 📚📌manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/kris…
In historical fiction, I’d prefer stories not set in Western Europe or the USA. Hidden histories and female-led retellings are also up my alley.
I love beautiful historical fiction that reminds us that trans people have always been here #mswl
Oh wait-- one more bizarrely specific #MSWL from me:
I'd love to read a historical or Regency farce set on social media. The scandal! The games of gossip telephone! The social climbing! I'm talking Georgette Heyer with groupchats and softblocks.
It's #MSWL day! Send your voice-y upmarket fiction (especially if it's set in London), your immersive feminist historical fiction, and your thought-provoking/laughter-inducing narrative nonfiction my way! More details below: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/brig…
Happy #MSWL day!
I really want more historical cozy mystery in my life since I have been reading it with a vengeance.
Time periods I like to read about: 1920s-present day. I don't read a lot of historical fiction older than that (I liked FOUR WINDS, OUR WOMAN IN MOSCOW, and love Beatriz Williams in general).
