Family

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Dec 6

I am particularly looking for realistic contemporary and romcom #YA from #POC. I want love stories (straight & not); sister or brother stories; stories about finding oneself or finding a best friend. I want to really feel the setting, too. #MSWL

So apparently, View Park-Windsor Hills, CA has one of the largest communities of middle- and upper-class African Americans.

Um hi, can someone write this book for me to read? Is the world ready for a bougie black family drama? Am I adding this to my #MSWL?! 🤗🤗

Would love to see more inter-generational stories from non-western cultures for the PB space in my inbox! Grandparents and grandchildren, aunts/uncles and nieces/nephews, etc. taking part in family or broader cultural traditions! #mswl

I like sibling books & books that explore complicated family dynamics. I like books with imperfect parents & big, extended families & families of choice. (Also, I know that abuse is a sad & awful truth in some families but I'm the wrong agent for those books.) #MSWL

I am open to select Middle Grade projects - fantasy and contemporary. I want to see really unique characters from backgrounds less-often explored in MG. I definitely want to see LGBTQ+ protags and families, other unexpected family structures, & mental health conversations. #MSWL

Fake dating trope meets quinceañero w/ rich and nuanced family relationships alongside the YA romance please. #MSWL

Darker, issue-led women's fiction, and books about difficult or challenging family dynamics that we might not have seen before #mswl

Wait, I have another #MSWL item. Blended families!! There is nothing I love more than seeing exes okay with their former significant other’s new partner and vice versa. I need that happiness in my life.

I am literally copying and pasting this from my Pub Marketplace profile BUT I was born and raised in Southern California in a multi-cultural, blended family, so I have a soft spot for books that shine a spotlight on the nuances of family relationships and identity. #MSWL

Happy #mswl day! I'd like to see a suspense/thriller with a single pov and a rich atmosphere. Historical suspense in the vein of Ruth Ware. Family, friendship, and enemies attract my attention. Check the rest of my wish list on the Belcastro Agency website.

But I also look for a “lean forward” plot. Whether a domestic mystery, family saga, upmarket fiction, or light-hearted romcom, send me your novels with that page-turning quality that keep me reading late into the night. #mswl
