ngl, it feels weird to be doing any kind of 'business as usual' rn and every day brings a new existential crisis but one of the few things that have kept me going are stories & the amazing writers i get to work with, so i'm excited for more 🖤

YA: I love diabolical characters doing diabolical things, for both right and wrong reasons. Villainous found families, tragedies, queer voices, and dark fantasy are top of my list at the moment. If anyone has written a contemporary fantasy marching band book, PLEASE SEND IT TO ME

Adult: SFF & horror! I especially love dark SFF, whether that be epic fantasy or space opera, & I'm interested in horror that intersects with other genres. I'd love to find a horror romance, or a sci-fi horror. Would love a sapphic romantasy & any creepy, queer genre works.

devoured six books on my vacation, and really truly loved them all! But reading Evelyn Waugh’s THE LOVED ONE made me crave a modern story set in a cemetery that isn’t horror (or could have horror elements but isn’t primarily meant to be scary). Putting it out there! #MSWL

I’m no longer seeking Adult Thriller and have to be very selective with YA fantasy.

Discovered I am not the best fit for any stories with heavy religious elements, vampires (unless VERY unique), pirates/ships/water settings, and AI or VR characters/plots.

• YA Contemporary: relatable, everyday situations teens go through. Heartfelt, underlying messages or overall just a fun and feel-good read. Romance plot or self-discovery/coming-of-age. Would love to see a strong theater rom-com!

• YA Eco-Fiction: in today’s world or very near future, teens battling climate change or actively searching to save a species from extinction
• YA Thriller: edge of your seat who dunnit mystery, (Cruel Summer x One of Us is Lying)

• Adult Romance: swoonworthy, happy, believable romance. Bonus points if it's second chance and dual timeline/pov (Carley Fortune x Emily Henry)
• Adult Fantasy: either with a heavy romance or it’s a subplot, adventurous and immersive fresh takes on a fantasy world

Well, sitting at the airport so figured I would go ahead and drop that #MSWL before I reopen to queries on Monday! It’s been updated here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/andie-smith/

What I am actively searching for when I reopen:

But I will reopen to select YA genres as well. So it will be Adult SFF, Horror, and Mystery (not true crime). YA horror, thriller, and romance. No YA fantasy or science fiction or contemporary.

Happy to take questions for a little bit about my #MSWL . #askagent
