I have a soft spot for HISTORICAL FANTASIES, whether real or imagined & particularly if they have a healthy dose of romance in there i.e. Regency Faerie Tales. I do love learning about a new culture or period of history, so assume I am casting this net very far & wide! #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.

#MSWL *Think "If Bridgerton was an inspirational novel."
*Think "not an old-fashioned romance" but still set in opulent historical regency period.
*Think "not historically accurate." Give me diversity, sass.
*I am looking specifically for Inspy/Christian fic/clean" read romance

Regency and Victorian era romance by BIPOC authors, in addition to romance from other countries during this time period (approximately 1811-1901). For example, Rebel (Women who Dare) by Beverly Jenkins, and the forthcoming Ana Maria and The Fox by Liana De La Rosa. #MSWL

#MSWL #ROMANCE: This should've been at the top. I'm dying for a really great #RomCom in the vein of Helen Hoang or Christina Lauren. I also am a sucker for an enemies to lovers trope. #Regency is my original love since my teens, so I'd love something in the vein of Julia Quinn

I have a spot on my list for a fresh, high-concept historical romance series! Print potential for the right book/sales track. Agents, authors…who has a yummy Regency, Highlander, or Viking series for me to devour?#MSWL (see pinned tweet)

I’d also happily take on another Regency series or two, including those set outside of London. Diversity within the world required. Oh, and I like ‘em spicy :) Submission guidelines in my pinned tweet. #MSWL #HistoricalRomance

I want to acquire a YA regency romance with a diverse cast of characters. Who’s got one? Black historical romance authors are strongly encouraged to query. I’m interested in all angles of that period. #YA #mswl #amwriting
