I love books with grumpy characters like The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen and My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry. I love the dark humor of these books, and in particular, loved the perspective of an older POV like Hendrik Groen

I love books with morally ambiguous plots and unlikeable protagonists in the vein of Amy Dunne and Emma Woodhouse. Give me your ragey women!

In historical, I’m a bit tired of brilliant women who want to escape the torment of high society. I’d rather see brilliant women who love high society and want to use it to their advantage, à Lady Mary Crawley of Downton Abbey.

I almost always love anything set in the UK, Ireland, Russia, (or a dark and stormy coast)

“Standout single subject books tend to grab me really quickly. If you think your project is too niche, I might be right for you.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL

“I’m always in the mood for smart women's fiction that reinvents the wheel on Jane Austen. Historical like LONGBOURN or modern like THE LIZZIE BENNET DIARIES.” @readbystephanie #MSWL

I’d particularly love a queer rom com at a boarding school or first year of college. Just saying. Like Sara Zarr’s ROOMIES, but romantic and, you know, gay af. #MSWL
