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

I started watching The Baker and the Beauty and just a quick note, I would die for an adult rom-com like this in my query box. #MSWL.

This 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

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.

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…

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Jan 3

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

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 17 Mar 2019

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
