I feel like so much of my #MSWL lately is ripped from the headlines. The latest, the Men of Media lawsuit has me wanting the fiction version of those stories, the lawsuit or any of it.

And of course in fiction I'm still and always looking for mystery, suspense, domestic suspense, women's fiction and mom stories---bonus for LGBTQ characters. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Sep 27

Also looking for more personal and self empowerment books like YOU ARE A BADASS and guided journals. #MSWL

I vowed to stay off Twitter today so instead I dug deep into @PublishersLunch & discovered so many great deals that grabbed my attention & when I see great deals I start a #MSWL list.

I want more leadership & business books written by women. I'm tired of reading @inc & @FastCompany book lists with very few women authors. Not their fault, it's mine for not having enough on my list. So women please send me the next START WITH WHY or THE ONE THING. #MSWL

Good morning! In my continued search for more books set in Alaska & wilderness survival books I’m heading to the source. Alaska Writers here I come! #mswl #writersconference

Lunchtime at @bookendslit finds @jamerrson & I discussing #MSWL ideas and some plot hooks we would both love to see. Plane crashes & bucket lists lead the chat as well lost in the wilderness stories. For me, these are almost always for an adult audience.

@BookEndsJessica What kinds of crime stories interest you?

Replying to @Brent_Dragoo

I'm most interested in mysteries/thrillers/suspense/domestic suspense/thrillers-- anything with a female protagonist. I'm not usually a fan of the spy thriller or international thriller, although I would love more international suspense/mystery. #askagent #MSWL

This is such an industry term though & I'm aware that those new to publishing, author or otherwise, don't always have a grasp of what is meant by that, or how big a hook really needs to be. #amwriting

A hook hooks the reader, sometimes it's a way to distinguish the cover, sometimes it just grabs readers. A family quarantined for seven days together is a great hook SEVEN DAYS OF US. A husband who sells a house while his wife is away is great--OUR HOUSE #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Sep 7

I'm a sucker for hooks & high-concept book. I read a lot & it's easier to get my attention if there's something in your book that I can quickly latch on to. You know, something that "hooks" me. #MSWL
