Hey #amquerying authors! Here's what the BookEnds agents are dying to see in their inboxes. #MSWL twitter.com/bookendslit/st…

I was late coming to the thread so I'll add mine in now. I'd like more books like Crazy Rich Asians. I'm in the mood for something funny and light. #diversebooks a plus or women's fiction. #amquerying #MSWL

I'll let the agents @bookendslit pipe in, but for me, I want to see transgender & nonbinary protagonists & characters in adult fiction who are just people, living their normal lives & that it's not about being LGBTQ or other because they are just being. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Aug 2

I think it's fair to say that this is a mission for everyone at @bookendslit -- to acquire more LGBTQ authors and books in both fiction and nonfiction, for kids and adults #MSWL #diversebooks

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Aug 2

. @AgentJessicaA & I are starting the morning with a discussion on teaching children more about the LGBTQ community & so of course, I'm inspired for another #MSWL

I've been very particular about the nonfiction queries in my inbox. One thing I've noticed in particular is that I really want more female voices in my personal empowerment, self-improvement & business titles. #MSWL

I still have a passion for business building and personal growth books, especially by women & marginalized authors. Think THE ONE THING & YOU ARE A BADASS. #MSWL

I still want #ownvoices set outside the US of all types, but I'm (at least for now) especially interested in fish out of water #ownvoices which allows the reader to see it through the eyes of an outsider who has been let inside. #MSWL

Two of my top books for 2018 so far are #ownvoices set in countries outside the US (Singapore & Cuba). These are the types of books I want more of #MSWL

In thinking about these books more I realized that there is a similarity. Both books feature a fish out of water--a lead character (maybe protagonist) who was not originally from that place but is an American with family from that place (Cuban-American). #MSWL

As always, I'm thirsty for a cocktail book. Every time I see a new deal for one I get a little sad. Cocktails with fun themes? For women? Stories about drinking? What's your twist? (see what I did there?) #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jul 19

I want women's fiction with a strong romantic thread. Former romance authors maybe? #RWA19 #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jul 19

I feel like I've been seeing so many dark books lately that I would like something lighter. Not chick lit light, but Other People's Houses or Crazy Rich Asians light. #mswl

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jul 19

I want books set in other countries that teach me about the culture, from more serious women's fiction #WF to fun fiction like Crazy Rich Asians. I LOVE learning about other worlds and cultures. #mswl

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jul 19

It's not lost on me that some of my top books of the year are #ownvoices Inspiring me to write up an #MSWL calling for more #ownvoices in my Query inbox: QueryMe.Online/Jessica_Faust
