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

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

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

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

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

I'd love to read a YA novel about a teenager clinging on to the hope that ska will come back.

Wait that's my memoir. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 28 Jun 2017

Would LOVE to read a YA novel about a teen running her own BBS server. #MSWL

For those who aren't An Old™ like me: bit.ly/2ukljjr

Thinking about this old post by @Ava_Jae today. bit.ly/2nW6IvX

If you're querying a chronic illness YA contemp, pitch me. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 16 Mar 2017

I want to read a good YA horror novel that captures the terror and anxiety of falling off Rainbow Road on the last lap in Mario Kart. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 8 Feb 2017

In an age of constant thinkpieces, I'd love to read a YA contemporary romance about a teen who writes them.

The title? Hot Takes. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 8 Feb 2017

And this is a specific request, but.

I'm dying for a YA novel about brown kids at Comic Con. Or running a comic shop. Anything geeky. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 8 Feb 2017

Looking for quiet YA contemporary / rom-coms.

Do you write Nora Ephron style YA like @LaurenEMorrill? Let's laugh and cry together. #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 8 Feb 2017

Looking for diverse YA of all genres.

Are you the next @zlikeinzorro @sabaatahir @SanguMandanna @aishacs? I want to hear from you! #MSWL
