Oh. Oh my.
One of my authors sent me an adult rom-com with splashes of ✨FANTASY and MAGIC✨.
Querying writers, please send me stuff like this. I want these surprising genre-blends so bad. #MSWL.
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksIt begins! I'm open to queries again @PSLiterary!
Here's my wishlist, detailing the kind of projects I'm looking for. I'm searching for genre-blending literary fiction, accessible sci-fi and fantasy, non-fiction of all kinds, and MG and YA.
Let's chat! ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
When it comes to big specific #MSWL items:
🥰 Stories that celebrate neurodiversity, from authors who are neurodivergent.
💕 Joyful novels and powerful memoirs about the adoptee experience, written by adoptees.
✨ Genre blending romance and rom-coms. ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksWatching my little non communicative boy use a PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) board to interact is such a joy filled miracle.
Also an annual reminder that I’m desperate for more books that celebrate neurodiversity in my query box.
If I’m not making books for kids like him, I’m failing at this job. #MSWL
Early morning #MSWL tweets, as the toddler has been up since 6.
YA that celebrates neurodiversity, from writers who are (can’t stress that enough) neurodivergent.
Fiction and memoir from (stressing again) adoptees, on the adoptee experience.
Say hi! ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

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.
