I really want to see a YA sci-fi horror novel in my @PSLiterary query box.

Like, @Kim_Liggett meets @bethrevis?

YA Event Horizon? That comp is old because I’m old. #MSWL

Oh my goodness do I want a YA Titanfall-esque book. Teen pilot bonds with his giant mech... where is it?

Someone get me a book that reminds me of watching Exosquad as a kid, stat. #MSWL

Today is the day!

I'm open for queries again at @PSLiterary! Looking for YA, non-fiction (especially essays and memoir!), literary fiction, and more.

Details of my wishlist, here! bit.ly/2DS63il #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Jan 4

Pst.

Me and the @PSLiterary team are opening up for queries again on Monday!

Here's what I'll be looking for. bit.ly/2DS63il #MSWL

And when it comes to YA, I love just about everything.

But I'm really eager to find more diverse SFF novels and LGBTQ+ stories... books that make marginalized teens feel SEEN, not just in the now, but in far flung futures and lushly imagined fantasy worlds. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Jan 2

I also really want to find more accessible, devour-able sci-fi and fantasy novels.

Some of my favorites include @KatWithSword @fran_wilde and @ChuckWendig.

@SChakrabs wrote my favorite SFF novel of 2017. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Jan 2

When it comes to memoir and essays, I want to laugh, cry, and think about life.

Writers who did that to me last year? @readandbreathe @ilanaslightly @oureric @nicole_soojung @MorganJerkins @brandonlgtaylor.

If you write like them, please say hello. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Jan 2

Hey writer friends!

I open up to queries next week! This is what I'm looking for in 2018.

YA! SFF! Non-fiction! Cookbooks! Literary novels! Let's make some books together. bit.ly/2DS63il #MSWL

Hi, yes, please send me books like this in 2018, writers. Please. #MSWL twitter.com/KosokoJackson/…

Replying to @ericsmithrocks

"Hi Eric it's me a professional writer, what's on your #MSWL this year?"

"Please see @KosokoJackson's tweets."

"Do you have a link to a blog entry or a website or-"

"SEE THE TWEETS."

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 19 Aug 2017

Fun Fact: I have the equivalent of a real life #MSWL tweet on my fridge at all times.

More books like @MissDahlELama's in my life, please.

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 3 Jul 2017

I'd love to read a YA novel about a teenager clinging on to the hope that ska will come back.

Wait that's my memoir. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 28 Jun 2017

Would LOVE to read a YA novel about a teen running her own BBS server. #MSWL
