P.S. Literary Agency @PSLiterary“I’d really love to get more YA horror in my inbox. Smart horror. I don’t want gore, I want a story that creeps me out, and asks questions I don’t want answers to.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Randomly thinking about how diverse, inclusive adult literary fiction, set in small, intimate settings, have just rocked my reading heart the last few years.
If you're writing anything that'll make me feel the way @ZillianZi and @blgtylr's books have, you should query me. #MSWL
Throwing this out there, I would LOVE to find some diverse, inclusive rom-coms in my agent life.
Especially anything that's genre-blending, like The Plus One by Sarah Archer (robot engineer builds a wedding date).
Some of my current clients are writing them. Gimme more. #MSWL
P.S. Literary Agency @PSLiterary“In the wellness space, see some of the work I’ve been doing with Sophie Saint Thomas, specifically her books Finding Your Higher Self and The Little Book of CBD Self Care.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksThis book is very good, I should know. ❤️🎶✨🏳️🌈 twitter.com/jules_chronicl…
Also please, and I cannot stress this enough, send me your inclusive and diverse fantasy novels. Adult and YA!
I need more in my life. #mswl
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksI really need an autism and parenting book that has a helpful guide for when well meaning people say horribly offensive things and I want to put them in the sea.
Like, I’m very busy. I can’t keep making trips to the sea.
Btw, if you're writing one of these, or any kind of book that celebrates neurodiversity, know that my query box is open. #MSWL
Updated my agenting wishlist. Two specific highlights:
* Novels (includes kid-lit!) and memoirs about the adoptee experience, by adoptees.
* Adult and kid-lit books that celebrate neurodiversity, from authors who are neurodivergent.

During this downtime I’m reading a lot! Here’s my #MSWL!
✨ Genre blending literary fiction! Give me that weird stuff.
🌈 Diverse, inclusive YA! Give me books that reflect the world!
😳 Non-fiction that surprises and delights!
Let’s go! ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Whenever I talk about wanting more adult fiction, I get DMs and emails asking for specifics, so... here’s an explanation and a starter pack.
I like genre-blending novels that are character driven, and far more about relationships than world building. #MSWL
I can't tell you how often I think about films like Birdbox and A Quiet Place, and how badly I want to read more novels about parents fighting for their kids and found families in apocalyptic settings.
I mean, I also DON'T want to read them, but also I do.
Send me those! #MSWL
Annual evergreen request...
Send me your kid-lit, adult novels, essays, memoirs... you name it, centered around your adoptee experience. I want those close and personal stories, both in fiction and non-fiction.
Let's make it happen. #MSWL is here. ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksHey writer friends! I’m at nearly 250 queries since reopening on Monday.
I’m reading every single one, but apologies in advance if it takes me a minute. Keep them coming. ❤️ twitter.com/psliterary/sta…
Like I said earlier in the week, I’m really eager to find more adult fiction (especially genre blends) and non-fiction of all kinds.
My post with my #MSWL is here. Query away! ericsmithrocks.com/blog/2019/12/2…
I open up to queries again at @PSLiterary on Monday, so I've updated my wishlist!
I'd love to see more adult fiction and non-fiction this year. Send me your messy genre-blending stories, niche cookbooks, and complex memoirs.
Details on the blog! ericsmithrocks.com/blog/2019/12/2… #MSWL
I’m reading a manuscript that’s reminding me of Lost Planet, and goodness, do I miss that game.
I wish the sequels had kept up with all the wonder of the first one. Someone reboot it, thanks.
Also, more fantasy adventure novels with giant monsters and snow please. #MSWL
