Is it too much to ask for a modern, female-centric, MG version of THE SANDLOT? The varied friendships and subtle family drama and learning your fears aren't so scary and growing up/growing apart? So much to love! #MSWL

Still looking for book proposals from published romance authors for a cute G-rated gay Hallmark romance.
*not YA/NA
*not a coming-out story
*supportive families, friends
*clear conflict: rivals to romance, second chance?
*being gay is not the conflict

Graphic & hybrid novels & series are welcome too! Some examples there from my past titles would be DORK DIARIES and THE OKAY WITCH. Quintessential MG stories about finding your way through the labyrinth of family, school, & friendship twists and turns.

#MSWL: a YA like the movie Frequency. Time travel fuckery. Dealing with grief/healing, family, memory, etc.

But without the cop element/storyline 🥴

I really want some relatable women’s fiction about millennials finding their way in the world, taking the wrong paths and learning as they go. I want to see relationships tested —familial, friendships, romantic etc.

I want single parent stories, whether mom or dad or grandparent, that could cover themes of grief, abandonment, acceptance, or community, but ones where the character arc starts and ends at home. AND, if it's BIPOC, I want them thriving, y'all! #MG #YA #MSWL

#WritingCommunity, I always hear from editors who want sprawling, epic, family sagas. I TOO want one of those, especially one that’s from a marginalized author subverting the genre a bit and giving me all the feels. If you have this, PLEASE query me! #AmQuerying #MSWL

In terms of FICTION: I am a sucker for novels about dysfunctional families. Extra bonus points if they’re wealthy (think HBO’s Succession) because, let’s face it, reading about rich people in trouble is fun. Super extra bonus points if there’s an immigrant angle in there.

I am really hoping to acquire a sweeping family saga by a Latinx writer with gorgeous, lush, lyrical prose. Bonus points if there are elements of magical realism.

Hey agent friends! I've been really craving some more middle grade submissions in my inbox. I love stories that focus on friendship, family, and culture--regardless of genre--with an eye towards projects by authors from the margins. Please send me your MGs 🙏🏼 #mswl
