Family

Hannah Allaman @hallaman13 · 2d

NGL I'm also consistently a sucker for...

📌Families! Siblings! Multi generational stories!
📌Witches + magic
📌Baking (bonus points: make it flirty)
📌Speculative twist? I'm there.

Last up, @ktgreenst wants a revenge plot, sweeping and/or funny family epics, meaty and multi perspective books like THE ART OF FIELDING, fresh campus novels, conversation starters a la SUCH A FUN AGE and historical fiction cum THE PARIS WIFE. Read more: bit.ly/2JfHm4f

From @susanW1F: I adore novels with a sense of mischief, powerful prose/voice, dark in unexpected ways, but never bleak. I love a contemporary, complex family story, or something with a speculative edge - ghosts, folklore, magic, ‘otherness’. Find me here: bit.ly/3dvyqWg

On to @EmF1nn, who's hunting for love stories (platonic/romantic/big messy families); gorgeous writing with page-turning plot; high concept fiction with an arresting premise and characters to do it justice; immersive, cross-genre narrative non-fiction... bit.ly/3bnKerI

Hey #amquerying authors, I’ve got lots of reading time, so send me allllll your VOICEY escapist fic. Book club fic, rom coms (I love the het ones, yes, but dear god someone send me a queer f/f or enby rom com), beach reads, upmarket family drama heavy on sister stories. #MSWL

Emmanuelle Morgen @EmMorgen · Mar 20

A YA about being trapped with your family. Yet finding connection, solace. #mswl

💞 Family means everything to me and I'm a sucker for stories that feature big, multigenerational, immigrant families. 🎁 Have a story that has a treasure trove of family history? 💫 Bonus points for multilingual households and prose that keeps me up at night. YA or MG. #MSWL

Agents! Would ❤️ to see: historical (1900s), diverse voices, complex female relationships, high society, immigrant stories, suspense, light speculative, campus setting, southern, family dramas, gothic, nostalgia, romcom. All upmarket w/ commercial hook & feminist themes. #mswl

Elizabeth Copps @escopps · Mar 18

Family dynamic à la Wild Thornberries #MSWL

Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween · Mar 16

Agented only #MSWL things I want across YA and adult: crossover fantasy (contemporary and not), magical realism, rom coms, rom sads, family stories, witches, vampires

Erica Bauman (Closed to Queries) @Erica_Bauman · Mar 12

This is weirdly specific (blame my subconscious) but I’d love to see a YA where the MC is dealing with the fallout of a parent’s very public arrest as a serial killer, and the true crime aficionados and podcasters who now hound their family. #MSWL

Ashley Herring Blake @ashleyhblake · Mar 2

Send me your fresh, voice-driven MG realistic contemporaries! I’m looking for stories—esp from mariginalized creators—that feature unconventional families, first crushes, community & activism, family secrets, girls dealing w/ unwanted body attention, angry girls, enby MCs. #MSWL

CONTEMPORARY: travel rom-coms, big family cast (related or not), quirky small towns (think Gilmore Girls or Schitt's Creek), Caribbean and archipelago settings, basically Hallmark movies but diverse #mswl

One of the hardest thing about querying agents is knowing what’s actually a fit for their lists... so I’m excited to share my #MSWL with everyone! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/mega… take a look to see my specific interests and fav reads!
