Friendship

Mari Kesselring @marikesselring · 12 Sep 2018

I wish for:
YA featuring teen protestors
YA high fantasy or sci-fi with non-romantic m/f friendship, teaming up together but not falling in love
MG "mean girl" antidote, girls who support each other through middle school's challenges

Other things I'm looking for? Vampires. Witches. Monster children. Found families. Female friendships. Theater kids and young geeks. #MSWL

It's #MSWL day. Topping my list is commercial women’s fiction--particularly #ownvoices contemporaries; mother/daughter, sisters, or best friends stories for women in their 30s or 40s. Romance isn't necessary though I do love romance.

Commercial “Millennial” novels: i.e. STARTUP, THE ASSISTANTS, THE KNOCKOFF, THE REGULARS. Starting careers, moving to new cities, friendships, new marriages etc #mswl

#MSWL MG Diverse and LGBTQIA+ voices. Middle grade is really some of the toughest years of my life, and anything that can help them realize it's okay to be different, is helpful. Love ghost stories and stories of crushes and friendship at this age.

contemporary middle grade stories of friendship or family – potentially with a touch of magic #mswl

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

#MSWL Give me a MG novel where a group of middle school friends (guys and girls) get sucked into a #Fortnite game! And ... go!

I am still, and always, looking for smart, fun YA. I like it all: Rom coms, friendship stories, siblings stories. Well written and smart, make me laugh and cry. #MSWL.

We LOVE rescue dogs and kitties, but we're very sensitive about animals. An animal being lost, injured, or imperiled can't be a big part of the story. We don't like dogs and cats behaving badly, because we don't want to discourage anyone from adoption. #MSWL #hallmark

In romance I love seeing a secondary romance, a reconciliation with a friend or family member, strong family ties and friendships (I'm a sucker for the hero having a brother or male best friend and would love a series with brothers), and the community coming together. #MSWL

Catherine Laudone @CatherineLaud · 20 Aug 2018

Would love to acquire a YA or MG with a strong female friendship like Idgie and Rachel’s in #FriedGreenTomatoes. Bonus points if it’s historical! #MSWL

I'm craving a manuscript in any category/genre that captures the joy, magic, comfort, empathy, and belonging of best friendship (agented submissions only, please, per company policy) #mswl

I'd also love to see a new take on Beaches (you know, the Bette Midler-Barbara Hershey movie), which I just re-watched - I'm really all over this best friends thing #MSWL

Joanna MacKenzie @joannamackenzie · 18 Jul 2018

A weekend reading series I attended reminded me of another #MSWL: adult best friend stories. Those relationships run so deep so what happens when they fall apart? Send me your friendships gone awry stories!

#MSWL #LGBT How about hist fic where nobleman's WIFE finds a mistress and must conceal their love? 😍

I second this #MSWL. I'd totally also be down for a historical where a woman is married and knows her husband is in love with another man, but they're best friends, so she helps him hide it from the public, or vice versa. Read one like this once and am still in love with it.
