Hey writer friends!
I've been closed to submissions since the summer and... I'll be opening up again on March 1st!
Literary fiction! Young Adult books! SFF! Cookbooks! Quirky non-fiction and moving memoir! Here's what I'm looking for in 2019. #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/2019/01/30/man…
Melissa @melissasee@ericsmithrocks What YA would you like have come across your desk?
When I open up for queries again (Springtime?), I am desperate for some more YA SFF genre blending novels, with the kind of expert world building I've seen in @RantingOwl @heidiheilig and @SanguMandanna's books. #MSWL
Goodness do jukebox musicals bring me so much joy.
Where's my YA novel about one? Teen decides to put on a jukebox musical to get the attention of estranged rockstar parent? Hijinx and music ensue.
Written in the voice of @SarahNSmetana? Thanks. #MSWL
Miranda Kenneally 📚🏋️♀️🍹🏈🐕🐈😘 @MirandaKennealyJust reading about #WalkOutToVote and I'm suddenly desperate to read a YA novel about characters who ditch school to go vote. And then maybe end up on life changing road trip and fall in love? bit.ly/walkout116
Send this to me. #MSWL
60 Second Docs @60SecDocsHumans weren't meant to fly, but @Crooked_Feather has other ideas. pic.twitter.com/Vh7CncMGq1
Send me the YA novel about a robotics-loving teen who makes wings on Etsy... and she accidentally makes a set that can fly.
Hijinks ensue. #MSWL
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'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
Preeti Chhibber @runwithskizzersIf I was an agent I think something that would be on the #mswl would be a Pirates of the Caribbean style YA except it's pirates from colonized lands going after the British Empire (@ericsmithrocks plz find this book and rep it thank you) pic.twitter.com/ge9r0SeIUA
Someone send this to me RIGHT NOW. #MSWL
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
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
