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
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 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 looking for genre-blending literary fiction, stories that give us something magical or speculative alongside prose that stirs up FEELINGS.
Perfect examples: The Night Circus by @erinmorgenstern, Here & Now & Then by @mikechenwriter, Station Eleven by @EmilyMandel. #MSWL
P.S. Literary Agency @PSLiterary"Literary fiction that takes you into small worlds and communities where I'm an outsider. A glimpse inside a complex family, or a workplace." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksHonestly one of the best novels I’ve ever read. Pick up @pengshepherd’s book! twitter.com/pengshepherd/s…
I talk a lot about how my favorite kind of literary fiction blends genres, pulling the speculative or a bit of magic into it.
And this one is a perfect, stunning example of that.
More books like @pengshepherd’s in my query box, please. #MSWL
Still getting the occasional DM asking if I'm open to queries... and I am! :-D
Here's what I'm looking for:
Most genres of YA.
Genre blending literary fiction.
Accessible sci-fi and fantasy.
Memoir and essay collections.
Query me! ericsmithrocks.com/mswl #MSWL
My wife is watching her reality shows (right now Temptation Island is on), and I so want to read a literary novel with reality TV in it.
Like a novel that feels like the show UnReal, or reminds me of THE LAST ONE by Alexandra Oliva. Oof that was a perfect book. #MSWL
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
This year, I really want to find more genre-blending literary fiction. It's a big focus.
See books like Station Eleven, The Night Circus, and The Monsters of Templeton as perfect examples.
I've been so lucky with @mikechenwriter @AlisonStine and @boycebabbles. Send me more!
Good morning! It's March 1st and I'm officially open to queries again at @PSLiterary!
Here's my #MSWL on my website, and I'm going to tweet a little bit about what I'm looking for... let's go. ericsmithrocks.com/blog/2019/01/3…
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.
