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
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 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
Sangu Mandanna @SanguMandanna@DelilahSDawson I’d love to see more brown people! I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a South Asian person on screen or page in Star Wars, other than Riz Ahmed! So a brown girl would be so cool! More mental illness rep would be great too.
This is also eternally on my #MSWL for YA and adult sci-fi and fantasy, please. Brown kids in space.
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
