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.
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
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
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
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
P.S. Literary Agency @PSLiterary"Novels about adoptees, written by adoptees. Adult or YA, I want those stories." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
An eternal request. I will never not want these. #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
