Family

-Please send me anything that’ll make me laugh. I’d love to see a protagonist as dry and witty as Eleanor Oliphant or Flavia de Luce, or a dysfunctional family saga like Arrested Development.

-The Neverending Story by Michael Ende is my all-time favorite book.

Thinking about The Family Stone (MASSIVELY underrated) and how much I would love to edit a romance with that kind of complex, emotional family dynamic. #mswl

I really love the Descendants so I would love to see a MG about a kid that deals with growing out of the family shadow. #MSWL

Watched #Descendants3 and favorite character is Facilier’s daughter. Would love to see a book about a family like the Faciliers who are practicing tarot readers with connections to “the other side.” #MSWL

I would love stories dealing with the highs and lows of relationships of all kinds- sibling, friendships, parental, work-related, romantic, #mswl

You know who I would like to meet in my inbox? The modern-day equivalent of the Quimby family. Where do they live? What do they look like? What conflicts are they facing? That's for you mg writers out there to imagine! #MSWL

I just got pitched a novel with a hidden trunk in the attic and family secrets galore! Somebody knows my #MSWL 😄😉

#MSWL I’m very interested in projects from active duty military, veterans, and their family members. I want to hear your unique story! My brother suffers PTSD from his tour in Afghanistan and I have a soft spot for this underrepresented group of brave men and women.

Sami Isman @SamiIsman · Jul 29

Overall, I want complex relationships, nuanced characters, & smartly plotted novels. A huge plus: a strong sense of place that adds complexity to the story - I don't want just another NYC book! #MSWL #Mystery #Thriller #FamilySaga #WomensFiction #WomenWriters #Speculative

I also love crazy, dysfunctional, large families, and stories from multiple perspectives-I want to see your characters grow Think The Immortalists or Ask Again, Yes #FamilySaga #MSWL

@erin_clyburn @Megan_Manzano @Literary_Tara What’s at the TOP of your MSWL? Anything you’re dying to see?! 😁

#askagent

I'd absolutely love:

Complex/sweet sibling relationships
Slow burn/enemy to lovers romance
Witches
A cast of super close characters. Think Stranger Things.
Survivalist stories.
Space travel or space operas.

Hillary Jacobson @hillaryjacobson · Jul 23

Two of my favorite books of the year so far (ASK AGAIN, YES and THE LAST ROMANTICS) are both gorgeous and epic family sagas. I'd love to find something in this vein! #mswl

Kat Kerr @thekatsmews · Jul 15

I am also still looking for works of creative nonfiction that address issues not often talked about: from family dynamics to social justice, anything that explores those hard-to-define gray areas of our lives and that will really make me stop and think. #mswl

This is an r/relationships post from the SA peanut gallery thread because the original was deleted. You will not regret reading this one although you might scream. 🐀🐀🐀🐀 pic.twitter.com/nIt12atnqI

I’m currently closed to queries but I firmly #MSWL this for when I open. Family controlled (or puppet-ed) by (haunted, cursed maybe) mice figurines who hide their very real presence from most but are very active in a super bad way with those they manipulate. #horror

Megan Manzano @Megan_Manzano · Jul 6

The deeper I get into #StrangerThings the more I want stories with sweet af relationships between older/younger siblings or friends.

Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween · Jul 2

#MSWL: Adult Fiction: family sagas, complex juicy historical (think The Crimson Petal & the White, Queen of the Night), female friendship stories, Millennial fiction (think Sally Rooney or Casey McQuiston)
