Had a great chat today while recording the podcast, about the lack of POC in YA novels centered around astrology.

I really love those books (ie: Summer of Supernovas), and would love to see that.

I'm closed for queries, but if you're writing a story like this, pitch me. #MSWL

Reading @AshWrites’ new book, and remembering @WriteinBK’s talk yesterday at the festival, I’m reminded how badly I want to read more YA friendship books.

If you’re writing one, query me next year when I’m open again. ❤️ #MSWL

I want to read a novel that carries the same amount of emotional tension as the end scene in Homeward Bound, when you're waiting to see if the second dog, Shadow, made it.

I don't think it can be done. #MSWL

Getting caught up on the final season of #Unreal and my goodness, do I want to read a novel that feels like this.

Pitch me, writers. #MSWL

Lately video games are BRINGING IT when it comes to emotional family narratives. My goodness.

I’d love to read a SFF novel that gives me the same feels as God of War or Horizon Zero Dawn. #mswl

I'm so hungry for a good YA sci-fi novel that gives me Mass Effect vibes. Where the character arcs and relationships are just as in-depth as the world building.

I feel like @RantingOwl @rhodabee and @SanguMandanna NAIL this with their books.

Send me something like that. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 3 Jul 2018

I want a YA novel about teens in the mid-90's running B.B.S. systems on their home computers, and getting into various hijinx over modems.

Where are you, my geeky writer? #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 11 May 2018

Are there any YA novels about birders?

I would LOVE to read a YA contemporary novel about a teen birder. Anyone out there writing one? Query me. #MSWL

Currently watching Wild Wild Country, and it is making me REALLY want a novel that'll leave me as shaken as The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by @StephanieEOakes. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 20 Apr 2018

After finishing the @netflix reboot of @lostinspacetv, all I want is a good family drama... that just happens to be in space. #MSWL

Send me your accessible sci-fi, please!

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 17 Apr 2018

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
