I'd also love to see high-concept YA thrillers, especially if they incorporate a structure that adds to the tension. I'm haunted by Stephanie Kuehn's WHEN I AM THROUGH WITH YOU, which is told from jail, and I'd looooove something like that. #MSWL

In speculative fiction (light sci-fi, horror, fantasy), I need worlds that I can settle into easily.

Fresh takes on classic tropes, dynamic characters, unique magic systems, atmospheric writing & undeniably high stakes ✨Think: R.F. Kuang, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Rory Power

I’d love to see more crime fiction! 🔪🖤

If it reads like a true crime doc or headline, I’m into it. 🚫 police, gov’t officials, detectives (past or present).

I also love speculative twists and psychological elements like Riley Sager, Vera Kurian, & Tiffany D. Jackson!

Romance has been such a joy to work on, so I’d love to see more! Especially in the YA space—think: Jenny Han, Sandhya Menon, Jason June & Adiba Jaigirdar ❤️‍🔥

And I will ALWAYS love a little bit of romance in my fantasy 🥰

Will never be sick of it, I swear.

And I am eager to support commercial and high stakes stories featuring BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, disability, and neurodiversity representation.

“With memoir, I love a story that feels like I’m reading a collection of essays. @JamesTateHill's BLIND MAN'S BLUFF and @m_scribe's WHAT WE DIDN'T EXPECT, an anthology of essays are two books I worked on that fit in that space.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

I will also take villains who are the MCs, heroes who are made heroes because they’d be too powerful if they were baddies, some murder mystery, himbos & bimbos being best friends, the vibes of Miles Morales leaping off the building, also the vibes of Nick Miller doing anything
