For whatever reason, I’m really craving some historical MG, YA, and Adult right now. Scotland history and mythology in the Jacobites time, Louis the XIV court intrigue, French Revolution YA, Spanish Civil War, House of Savoy unification of Italy, Russian Revolution, etc.. #MSWL

So, yes!, I'm still open to WWII stories. But I really want to see a fresh perspective, so go out there and find the story that hasn't been told yet. #mswl

I think there are still a ton of stories we can tell with regard to the War's Pacific front. Sara Ackerman's books set in Hawaii during the War are great examples. #mswl

BUT, my #amquerying friends, you must show me a perspective on the War that's fresh and new and like nothing I've seen before to get me interested. If I feel like I can go to my local bookstore and easily pick up 10 books with a premise similar to yours, I'm going to pass. #mswl

So, let's talk about books set during WWII. Are there still a ton of them hitting the bookshelves every month? Yes. Am I a bit burned out on them? Also, yes. Am I completely closed to WWII queries? Of course not! #mswl

I have a #MSWL, one that I've wanted for a long time. I would love, LOVE, to work with a female veteran who is writing the Great American War Novel, where women and their lives are centered instead of on the periphery. Also, if this exists, tell me so I can read it.

This story just CONSUMED me! I couldn't stop reading! I needed to know about Emil and Xaver! I'm sobbing! I would love to publish a story like this some day, but probably fictional inspired by real people! Code Name Verity with gay men and WWI! I'm a wreck right now! #MSWL!

Q5. For Kate: Following on from the previous question: what would you like to see more of in romance, or possibly less of? #ukromchat @katenashagent @linalanglee pic.twitter.com/bjQY5tWKDS
Replying to @ukromchat

I'm looking for 1. Sweeping epics in war, like Gone With The Wind. 2) Romance reflecting today's UK diverse communities, such as inner cities or very rural. 3) a real Victorian rags-to-riches tear-jerker. 4) In romcom, new settings like @KarenAldous_ Alps #MSWL #UKRomChat

Anyway coming from today’s discussion of old favorites: please send me more fun young-woman epic fantasy with beautiful dresses, high stakes, and some enemies-to-lovers, thank you. #mswl twitter.com/hannahnpbowman…

Do they end up CARING FOR EACH OTHER’S INJURIES in a TENT during a WAR until TRUST DEVELOPS and SEXUAL TENSION?? Is he shocked to see her in a DRESS not just MUDDY BREECHES after the battle is won? It is my kind of happy epic fantasy. (And I’m in the mood for that!) #mswl
