Don't forget, even when everything feels like it's on fire, the world still needs your playful rom-com novels about kissing. <3 #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 16 Apr 2018

I'm not saying I have a brand, but @TheAdamSass' debut is the second book I'm pitching around that I'm comping to Last Seen Leaving by @MikalebRoehrig. The first was @tomryanauthor's (out next year!).

So. Hi yes, send me your inclusive YA thrillers. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 14 Apr 2018

Watching @UnRealLifetime with @BeautyBritches and thinking about how bad I want to read a book like this.

Like The Last One (goodreads.com/book/show/2724…), but maybe YA. #mswl

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 25 Mar 2018

I would love to read a YA novel set in the 90's about a teen in a ska band.

I would totally pick it up pick it up pick it up-

I'm sorry.

But really I want to read that. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 6 Mar 2018

I really want to read a novel that captures the joy and horror of watching @UnRealLifetime.

The characters, the manipulation, the drama... I just love it. Give me that book. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 15 Feb 2018

I think about this scene in The Royal Tenenbaums ALL THE TIME.

I'd so love to read a YA novel from the perspective of a Margot. Adopted teen in a wealthy dysfunctional family. Yes please. #MSWL

Reminder, I'm super open for queries now at @PSLiterary!

Looking for YA, non-fiction, literary fiction, sci-fi / fantasy, and more.

Details on the blog! bit.ly/1VLTeuy #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 24 Jan 2018

Is there a steampunk novel out there like I, Robot?

Kinda love the idea of steampunk automatons and creatures gaining sentience and independence.

Someone send me this. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 16 Jan 2018

I really want to see a YA sci-fi horror novel in my @PSLiterary query box.

Like, @Kim_Liggett meets @bethrevis?

YA Event Horizon? That comp is old because I’m old. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 9 Jan 2018

Oh my goodness do I want a YA Titanfall-esque book. Teen pilot bonds with his giant mech... where is it?

Someone get me a book that reminds me of watching Exosquad as a kid, stat. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 8 Jan 2018

Today is the day!

I'm open for queries again at @PSLiterary! Looking for YA, non-fiction (especially essays and memoir!), literary fiction, and more.

Details of my wishlist, here! bit.ly/2DS63il #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 4 Jan 2018

Pst.

Me and the @PSLiterary team are opening up for queries again on Monday!

Here's what I'll be looking for. bit.ly/2DS63il #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 2 Jan 2018

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

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 2 Jan 2018

I also really want to find more accessible, devour-able sci-fi and fantasy novels.

Some of my favorites include @KatWithSword @fran_wilde and @ChuckWendig.

@SChakrabs wrote my favorite SFF novel of 2017. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 2 Jan 2018

When it comes to memoir and essays, I want to laugh, cry, and think about life.

Writers who did that to me last year? @readandbreathe @ilanaslightly @oureric @nicole_soojung @MorganJerkins @brandonlgtaylor.

If you write like them, please say hello. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 2 Jan 2018

Hey writer friends!

I open up to queries next week! This is what I'm looking for in 2018.

YA! SFF! Non-fiction! Cookbooks! Literary novels! Let's make some books together. bit.ly/2DS63il #MSWL
