During this downtime I’m reading a lot! Here’s my #MSWL!
✨ Genre blending literary fiction! Give me that weird stuff.
🌈 Diverse, inclusive YA! Give me books that reflect the world!
😳 Non-fiction that surprises and delights!
Let’s go! ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
“YA non-fiction: Memoir, essay collections, you name it. Queer There & Everywhere is probably my favorite YA non-fic title in recent memory, and a great example of what I’d like to see.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
I would love to see some nonfiction in my inbox right now. If you have a pop culture, baseball/sports, psych, food, fandom, music, or craft related NF, or any other NF you think I might like, send me a query!
I’m not actively looking for memoir or biography right now. #mswl
“In non-fiction, I want to see more:
HOW-TO's for digital work-from-home nomads
Edgy well-being women’s health and reproduction topics
Societal analysis with bold hooks.”

Looks like I have some extra reading time. I’d love to make the most of it + read the work of #mg authors looking for rep. Right now, I’m super open to MG fiction, nonfiction+ graphic novels! Send me your query! Read full thread for some specific #mswl items that would make me 😍
I'm largely a kids and YA agent, but I do also represent adult work - especially bold non-fiction with a clear hook and (often) socially progressive aspect - feminism; socialism; environmentalism; internationalism; mental health; prison reform - I'd love to see it.
#Mswl I'm looking for nonfiction in the topics I love: decor, design, gardening and pets. Check out our website for sub guidelines.

Abdul Ali @abdulali_@bookgurufelice, I notice you didn't list a wishlist for nonfiction book projects on your site. Does this mean you're only interested in novels?
In anticipation of my trip to New Orleans, one thing on my #mswl is almost any kind of book about the American South. Southern Gothic, romance, non-fiction, horror etc. Especially written by/about people of color. (Also open to already published book recommendations!)
For someone who loves baseball as much as I do, it’s a surprise I don’t have a baseball book yet. I’m SUPER picky when it comes to my fave sport, but a good baseball book (f or nf!) is always high on my #mswl
#mswl I'm looking for romantic comedies, and slow-burning romances. No non-fiction, historical novels or memoirs. I'm very selective with YA/NA but will take a look if the plot pulls me in!
Some things I am looking for:
- YA RomCom (or adult) with a diverse cast and smart topics.
- MG/YA nonfiction
- LGBTQ+ nonfiction
- Graphic novels in pretty much anything on my wishlist
- #LGBTQIA+ characters in everything.
- Body diversity
- Underrepresented voices
Updated #MSWL: humorous PB's with a surprise twist, and non-fic focusing on unsung heroes (pref. #ownvoices), MG with a clear narrative arc, unforgettable characters and a strong emotional core. Stories that bring out the magic in the ordinary. And ghosts!
