Thanks to @alyzaliu I'm now obsessed with #TheRomanceofTigerandRose. I'd love to see more of this type of lighthearted romcom but with a unique historical and/or fantasy premise!!! #MSWL

I'd really love to see more MG, more queer rom coms, more contemporary fantasy or contemporary with spec elements.

It's been harder for me to get sucked into higher fantasy.

#MSWL alert: I am VERY HUNGRY for middle grade projects right now! Fun MG mysteries, adventures, spooky paranormal, inventive fresh grounded fantasy, especially from folks from traditionally marginalized groups. #MG #paranormal #ownvoices #fantasy #mystery #adventure

SOME NEWS! After an S&S restructure, I'm now at McElderry, where I'll still be acquiring YA but will *also* be actively looking to build my MG list!

So agents, please keep me in mind for all your upcoming SFF middle grade! I'm definitely prioritizing that at the moment. #MSWL

Fantasy that takes place in a land of ice and shadows...maybe even complete darkness...is this a thing? Can I has it? #MSWL

Also really looking for some amazing African mythology and cultural beliefs/customs via contemporary fantasy, historical fantasy, or just plain fantasy. #MSWL Saw one in my box and am saving it to circle back. I’d love more!!!

I’m also still begging for my King Louis XIV sun king historical court intrigue with maybe a little magic? Historical Fantasy? I could go for just historical too if the writing fits! ❀️ #MSWL

In speculative fiction, I'm looking more for folklore, magical realism, surrealism, cozy fantasy, light fantasy, and atmospheric fantasy with lush world building and gorgeous prose, than traditional high/ epic fantasy. #MSWL

Like many fantasy readers, I love a good boarding school novel. I want one that tackles the Anglo-American boarding school as a tool by which socioeconomic class stratification, western imperialism, and patriarchy are taught and reinforced among impressionable children. #MSWL

#MSWL a MG adventure featuring a kid and his/her/their dog. Can be fantasy or not, but I want the friendship between child and canine to be front and center

β€œI read widely in YA, and enjoy just about every genre in it. I love moving contemporary reads, thrilling sci-fi, and lush fantasy.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

So let's talk graphic novel #MSWL ahead of me opening on 6/1. Below are just a small sample of some of my talented clients and their work.

For graphic novels, art is such a big part of it for me. pic.twitter.com/nePULFddzM

But you don't have to be an illustrator to give me graphic novels. I also love script only graphic novels #MSWL.

One thing I have noticed about my taste is I read for escape. I lean towards fantasy, or contemporary-elevated (which is not my regular every day).

I'd love to see more upmarket/literary fantasy in my inbox, a la TEN THOUSAND DOORS, UPROOTED, A DARKER SHADE. I'm particularly drawn to books that play with fairytales and folklore, but I'm looking for anything that draws me in w/ great characters and excellent writing. #mswl
