Family

Danielle Burby @DanielleBurby · May 30

Things I'm looking for right now: Creepy atmospheric forests, queer love stories, YA and MG fantasy, sister stories, boarding schools, complicated family and friendship dynamics, seaside novels, literary writing with commercial plot, interesting magic, feminism #MSWL

It seems after losing my Dad 6 yrs ago this August, I've found so much happiness in baking. I'm all about a book that celebrates making food, sharing it, and using it as a bridge to keeping connected with friends and family #MSWL

I'm always looking for domestic suspense, especially something #ownvoices & family-related (not just husband and wife) #MSWL

But not every book needs a romantic interest of any kind. Romance isn't something everyone has/wants. I love friendship stories. I love found family stories. Have a book that understands that friendship is as fraught and rewarding as any other relationship? Please query me. #MSWL

"Plot-driven story of marriage, complicated family drama, or mother/daughter relationships i.e. THIS IS HOW IT ALWAYS IS, EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU, MATING FOR LIFE, THE NEST, SHE REGRETS NOTHING, THE PEOPLE WE HATE AT THE WEDDING" @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Great news! I'm now officially up on the #MSWL website. Feel free to check out my bio, and if your project matches my interests, I'd love to see your query in my inbox.

There are not enough novels dealing with families of mixed race and adoption. But I want it, I need it, send, send, send. #adultorya #allaboutthefamilies #MSWL

#mswl dark, gothic creature feature, murders, unrequited sexual tension, found family...basically #PennyDreadful in book form.

#MSWL: crime families with a twist (in the vein of Holly Black’s CURSE WORKERS series).

I'm seeking more contemporary and historical lately––with accessible voices, character-driven plot, heart, humor, family/friendship/sibling relationships at the center. #mswl scribblesandwanderlust.wordpress.com/2018/01/01/msw…

I'm still also looking for domestic suspense. I'd love to see something family-oriented. Not just husband/wife, but maybe there are kids involved. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · May 4

I would really like a women's relationship story actually set at the beach somewhere. Friendships, sisters, sisters-in-law... #MSWL

#MSWL I am in need of more Middle Grade MG queries in my QueryManager! Send me ridiculous, send me adventure, send me fantasy, send me LGBTQ+ protags and family dynamics, BFFs and boisterous ensembles, stories with purpose, depth, and humor! #querytip #amquerying #amwriting

#MSWL Stories with strong sister relationships always hit me hard. Where are my middle grade sister-focused books at?
