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

Started watching Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet and... wow, I so would love an adult novel about working in game dev.

I remember adoring You by Austin Grossman, and would just love something a bit more contemporary. #MSWL

It begins. I'm open to queries again at @PSLiterary!

You can check out my #MSWL over on my blog.

Happy New Year, let's make some books. 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 dying to find more accessible adult sci-fi and fantasy novels, along the lines of @ChuckWendig @pengshepherd @DelilahSDawson and @KatWithSword.

I've read everything they've written, and would love to find a SFF novel that makes me feel like The Book of M. #MSWL

Annual #MSWL request:

Novels about adoptees, written by adoptees. Adult or YA, I want those stories.

Send me your books, friends. <3

Seeing a lot of queries from folks who love @mikechenwriter, and that fills my heart.

Reminder... I'm looking for adult literary genre blends, like Here & Now & Then, or like Station Eleven by @EmilyMandel and The Night Circus by @erinmorgenstern. ericsmithrocks.com/mswl #MSWL

Where is the non-fiction writer / relationships expert working on a book about making friends as an adult when you're over 30?

Send me your manuscript proposal. For personal and literary agent reasons. I'm both lonely AND see the value in a book like this! #MSWL
