P.S. Literary Agency @PSLiterary“I’d really love to get more YA horror in my inbox. Smart horror. I don’t want gore, I want a story that creeps me out, and asks questions I don’t want answers to.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/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
Updated my agenting wishlist. Two specific highlights:
* Novels (includes kid-lit!) and memoirs about the adoptee experience, by adoptees.
* Adult and kid-lit books that celebrate neurodiversity, from authors who are neurodivergent.

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
Some fun specific #MSWL things I'm looking for in YA:
A teen birder.
Teens really into snorkeling and diving.
Kids interning in national parks.
Teens really into rock climbing.
Give me niche, specific stories about passion projects, with all the unique terminology and language.
Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaIf you love college-kid YA as much as I do, you’re gonna wanna check out these new/upcoming titles! barnesandnoble.com/blog/teen/5-ne… via @BNTeens
Floating a little wishlist item out to the universe, but I really want to see more kid-lit non-fiction in my inbox.
Young Adult and Middle Grade non-fiction, specifically. #MSWL
I’m so proud of the work @IamGMJohnson and @robin_stevenson are doing, and I’d love to see more.
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
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksI get upset about the idea of a book being “too quiet” because of seemingly small stakes.
That internal journey is such a part of being a teenager. That’s your audience.
Yes fight The Citadel in the Battle of the Wars, but also maybe get books about panicking over first kisses.
