Friendship

janine o'malley @janine_omalley · Apr 10

On my #MSWL, contemporary middle grade books about boys and friendship. Boys care and worry about and love their friends, but there aren’t enough books that tackle those emotions and experiences.

Tropes I love: celebrities, cowboys, fairy tale remakes, fake engagement, fish out of water, friends to loves, makeover, mistaken identity, road trip, opposites attract, return to hometown, reunion/second chance, royalty, etc! #MSWL @HallmarkPublish

Heartwarming, chaste black romance (esp w/series potential) by #ownvoices, please! Family and friends as important secondary cast. U.S. small town or big city is fine. Fun takes on favorite tropes. Would LOVE holiday themes too! #MSWL @HallmarkPublish

And if you're like "I'm not 100% sure this sci-fi/fantasy works for the genre because it's more about the sibling/BFF relationship as they navigate the speculative world..." QUERY ME PLZ #MSWL

#mswl I know I’m currently closed for submissions but I’ve been watching Alexa & Katie on Netflix and would love a story about two girls and the strength of their friendship while one battles an illness. Would definitely make an exception for this!

#MSWL Love stories ala Gayle Forman or David Nicholls. All the feels, all the sobs, all the love. Love tropes like unrequited love, enemies/friends to lovers, or job passion romances, IF executed well.

#MSWL Stories exploring how male/male and female/female friendships grow and change, for better or worse. Here's an interesting listen on male friendships. npr.org/2018/03/19/594…

"A modern-day Sweet Valley Twins series, ideally featuring friends instead of siblings." #MG @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation/

I would LOVE a m/m teen romance featuring a #Intercultural #Latinx couple where friends become more like Benny & Nina do in #InTheHeights #MSWL Better if it's #OwnVoices too! pin.it/xognnfo7vze34k

"Heist/con story, YA or adult! Preferably with an interesting ensemble cast & friendship focus." @kurestinarmada #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

I’m dying for a #Latinx “Friends” & In The Heights crossover novel featuring a group of friends living in #TheBarrio. You know, just POC being POC in the 21st century. Even better if it’s #RomCom btwn 2 of the friends. #MSWL

Kelly *Screaming Moonlight* @LitAgentKelly · Mar 2

I still desperately need a Women's Fiction or Romance or even just Contemporary like The Bold Type! Friendship and female bosses galore! And HUMOR! All the laugh out loud lines, please! #MSWL

LOVE FRIENDSHIP STORIES? #FridayReads #authors18 twitter.com/BookSparks/sta…

I've been lucky in life in the friendship category which is perhaps why a good friendship story is always high on my #mswl and a reason why I fell in love with @AckermanBooks's submission way back when.
