#MSWL BIPOC-led #MH #DIS and #ND rep and particularly writing that isn't *about* these things but embraces how they affect the way we live our lives. E.g. a romcom lead who also happens to be dealing with PTSD, a thriller lead whose ADHD might inform the way they work...

#MSWL In YA: Ever on the hunt for my light-hearted Jewish rom-com. Particularly interested in the trend toward more traditional mysteries (see TRULY DEVIOUS, GOOD GIRLS, ACE OF SPADES) with a strong investigative drive. Always have room for smart, high-concept contemp retellings.

#MSWL big-hearted, body-positive, representative rom-coms that tackle the ugly and beautiful bits of love with humor. As always, very interested in leads who do not lose weight to find love. As always, very interested in canine co-stars. See: FLOAT PLAN, ONE TO WATCH, Emily Henry

ADULT FICTION
I’m looking for pageturning thrillers, book club fiction that is engaging and accessible, but still layered and thought-provoking. (You *might* call that “the intersection of commercial and literary.”) Think Taylor Jenkins Reid. I’d also LOVE hooky rom coms. #MSWL

“Unique, genre-blending romance novels. For example, I wish I had worked on The Plus One by Sarah Archer or any of Roselle Lim’s breathtaking romantic contemporary fantasy novels. Give me an adult rom-com in space, or with magic. Let’s get weird and swoony.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL

I'm also looking for romantic comedies, particularly with flawed protagonists (think: Fleabag, Bridget Jones). I'd also like to see RomComs in professional settings, or in unusual locations. #mswl

In YA, I want, as always, emotional and/or charming contemporary novels, particularly along the lines of FOOLISH HEARTS or THE LAST TRUE POETS OF THE SEA or ELIZA AND HER MONSTERS. Also always love a nerdy rom-com! #mswl

With #pitmad coming up, here’s a quick snapshot of my #mswl — I’m looking for adult commercial fiction, specifically fantasy, sci-fi, rom-coms, historical romance, paranormal romance and thrillers from BIPOC & LGBTQIA2S+ writers. Also open to graphic novels in the same genres! 📚
