#MSWL: I love seeing so many YA submissions, but I’m especially hungry to see more middle grade—whether that’s comedy, horror, adventure, fantasy, historical, or just a sweet, quiet, lovely contemporary (I love a challenge).

Overall I'm looking for mysteries (cozy or not), adult and ya romcoms, fantasy, thriller, sci fi and horror, but here are a few concepts and ideas that I'm specifically interested in lately:

Beyond that, some general things I gravitate towards when reading: unreliable narrators, strong sense of place, atmosphere, lush settings (in fantasy AND contemporary/realistic fiction), strong emotional resonance, twists, surprises, literary/lyrical writing. #MSWL

A YA fantasy with original, compelling worldbuilding – think RF Kuang, Tomi Adeyemi or Ciannon Smart. I want magic and danger and hearts-in-mouths, but above all I want it to feel new #MSWL

MG/YA: Fantasy is another first love! Everything from contemporary fantasy to high fantasy & epic fantasy. I LOVE unique world-building!
I'd also like lighter, even funny fantasy where the stakes aren't about saving the world, but adventure & characters. More Hobbit than LOTR.

MG: This is the area I'd most like to expand!

YA: My first love! I'm always looking for YA that stands out.
Select adult SFF & horror.
Always open to author-illustrators & graphic novels. Plus @DanieleDHunter & I LOVE novels-in-verse! We tend toward lyrical writing generally.

"Sci-fi & fantasy novels. I love them. I read a ton of them. But they have to be accessible. What does that mean? It means that readers who don't traditionally pick up much sci-fi/fantasy, can pick up one of these novels & enjoy it.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

I'd love to see more urban fantasy/paranormal romance that doesn't rely on traditional government bureaucracy or law enforcement structures! I'm a little worn out on magical P.I.s and supernatural government agents. #MSWL

#MSWL Anything paranormal, sci-fi, or fantasy WITH ROMANCE! (The hotter, the better.) Voice and skilled writing will always trump everything else, so if you have something I haven't asked for specifically, but the writing/voice is stellar, please send it anyway!
