MG and YA body-centric books. Characters who discover a sport/activity they love, or who feel betrayed by their changing body, or who have to adapt after any kind of body change #MSWL #WishlistWednesday

I would love to see some nonfiction in my inbox right now. If you have a pop culture, baseball/sports, psych, food, fandom, music, or craft related NF, or any other NF you think I might like, send me a query!

I’m not actively looking for memoir or biography right now. #mswl

For someone who loves baseball as much as I do, it’s a surprise I don’t have a baseball book yet. I’m SUPER picky when it comes to my fave sport, but a good baseball book (f or nf!) is always high on my #mswl

Can I get a LGBTQIA+ sports romance? Especially if the sporty one is a lady, trans, or nonbinary. This is for adult, YA, and I'd take upper MG (even if it isn't romance). Thanks! #mswl

Give me YA stories about competitive sports, found families, and momma bear coaches like in #Cheer

Huge #MSWL right now!

MG
-**we can fight climate change y’all**
-queer MC on an adventure, heist, terrible sports team etc (tho plot not necessarily about their queerness)
-STEM/STEAM threads
-joyful/frivolous/funny stories that center kids from marginalized backgrounds
-dogs, horses & sassycats (3/7)

#MSWL Anyone have a YA or middle-grade fiction manuscript that focuses around an extreme sport? Would love to get into the head of a daredevil protagonist!

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 7

Regardless of genre, some themes and subjects I love: family history/family identity; regret; sibling relationships; break-ups/romance gone sideways; extracurricular activities (such as sports, plays, mock trial), stories about letting go of shame, etc. #mswl

What's on @HolidayHouseBks #MSWL? Sports books, nonfiction in general, inclusive speculative YA fiction, middle grade, especially humorous. I personally also love doll and dollhouse books.

I finally updated my #MSWL page on my website: tiarosemele.com/mswl/

I'm still closed to queries, but take a look and if your book fits, query me after January 13th! :)

@chavelaque What subject would you like to see more books about?

A PB on the Atlanta washerwoman’s strike, or Pullman porters, or the Chicano rights movement; MG novels starring boys of color doing sports; MG or YA NF on topics of POC history #mswl

#MSWL everything about this. All the girl power in everything but especially in sports. And girls banding together instead of seeing each other as the enemy. I know HS And MS girls can be mean, but they can also be loving, supportive, and empowering, and that’s what I wanna see.

Not a sports book, but main characters and/or love interests who play sports. Sports aren't queer, per se, but queer folks who play sports are hot and we NEED MORE IN YA #mswl Look, ultimate frisbee is GAY AS HELL - where's the book with that love interest?
