I’m loving all the holiday rom-coms coming out lately, and I would LOVE to see some set around very specific regional holidays?
IE: Today is Sweetest Day for midwesterners (I lived in Michigan for two years, it’s a thing!) and I’d love to see that in a rom-com. #MSWL
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.
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksIt begins! I'm open to queries again @PSLiterary!
Here's my wishlist, detailing the kind of projects I'm looking for. I'm searching for genre-blending literary fiction, accessible sci-fi and fantasy, non-fiction of all kinds, and MG and YA.

When it comes to big specific #MSWL items:

✨ Genre blending romance and rom-coms. ericsmithrocks.com/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
I almost tweeted "YA rom-con" instead of "YA rom-com" and I officially want to read a YA contemporary novel about two teens planning a heist who OOPS also fall in love. #MSWL
Where's the YA author writing a rom-com in space? #MSWL
Give me the Nora Ephron quality swoons and smiles from @LaurenEMorrill's books mashed together with the flawless SFF world building from @SanguMandanna and @rhodabee.
It'll be weird. A marketing nightmare. Send it to me.
