This article ( was a good reminder that a word nerd book is on my #MSWL. Something like Kory Stamper’s WORD BY WORD, perhaps, or something totally different.

I missed the boat by not unveiling this on #MSWL Day, but I am pleased to reveal my visual MSWL board!… See the @bookendslit site for submission details.

I am still actively looking for new clients. Women’s fiction is on my #MSWL. I’d love to find some beach reads and romance that crosses over into the women’s fiction realm. I’m also hungry for more nonfiction—especially narrative and/or those with a culinary bent.

I want a banh mi for lunch but only have a sad frozen burrito. So, inspired by my lunch craving, a Vietnamese cookbook is on my #MSWL.

It’s my turn for a #MSWL blog post! Come on over and see some of what I’m looking for.…

Why, oh why, don’t I have more culinary books? Women’s fiction, romance, mystery, nonfiction, whatever. Send them to me to tide me over as I wait for more Top Chef. #MSWL

Big news! I’m opening to nonfiction. I’ll do a post on the BookEnds blog soon with my #MSWL, but I’m open to a wide range. Submit here: QueryMe.Online/1007

I’d love to see more category romance. I miss my Harlequin days of working on it. Would especially love to see projects for Presents, Desire, Intrigue, and Love Inspired. But send it all to me! #MSWL

From an editor's lips to my #MSWL: a contemp shark-themed romance. Sharks can't be bad in it! Also, a believable astronaut romance. #RWA17

So, coffin motorcycle trailers are a thing That makes yesterday's #MSWL less exciting but it could still be a book!

Jessica Alvarez @AgentJessicaA · 21 Jun 2017

A biker with a coffin hitched to his Harley flew past me on the highway. I need a book w/ this character. #OnlyInNJ #TheresABookInThis #MSWL

Another ripped from the headlines #MSWL. Who can give me an #ownvoices romance based on this?…

Jessica Alvarez @AgentJessicaA · 16 Mar 2017

There’s a book in this! I’d love to see a story (or series) based around this:… #MSWL

Another special interest is adoption. I want more adoption stories in women’s fiction and romance but authenticity is very important. #MSWL

I want contemp romance w #diversity and #ownvoices. I have a special interest in Asian characters but want to see more of all groups! #MSWL
