As for me, I'm always looking for genre-blending literary fiction, accessible sci-fi and fantasy, diverse and inclusive kid-lit, and moving non-fiction.
Some recent examples from my list? Here are some by @AlisonStine @mikechenwriter @mk_england and @JamesTateHill.
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
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
During this downtime I’m reading a lot! Here’s my #MSWL!
✨ Genre blending literary fiction! Give me that weird stuff.
🌈 Diverse, inclusive YA! Give me books that reflect the world!
😳 Non-fiction that surprises and delights!
Let’s go! ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
I'd love to find some more SFF novels that are fun, moving, diverse, and accessible.
My favorite SFF read last year was by @pengshepherd, and I'm smitten with the works of @KatWithSword @DelilahSDawson and @ChuckWendig.
The City of Brass by @SAChakrabooks is a perfect book.
I'm on the lookout for more diverse and inclusive voices in YA across all genres.
My favorite books last year were by authors like @RantingOwl @justinaireland @theames and @AshWrites.
And I'm DESPERATE to find a sci-fi genre blending masterpiece like @erin_bowman's Contagion.
Pst. This Friday I open up to queries at @PSLiterary again.
I really want to find more genre-blending literary fiction, diverse + inclusive YA, quirky non-fiction, and lots more.
The full #MSWL is here! bit.ly/2GG1M7r
And when it comes to YA, I love just about everything.
But I'm really eager to find more diverse SFF novels and LGBTQ+ stories... books that make marginalized teens feel SEEN, not just in the now, but in far flung futures and lushly imagined fantasy worlds. #MSWL
