It finally feels like Fall here, and it makes me want a story with a bite in the air. Give me wind and rain and secrets and mysteries, maybe a hulking castle or lonely croft on the moor. Something you can practically squeeze the atmosphere out of. #mswl

Lastly in mystery, I'd love to see some diverse cozies land in my inbox. There aren't nearly enough of them, please send more! #mswl

In mystery, I'm a sucker for stories where the setting is inseparable from the plot / characters. What Attica Locke does in BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD and Jane Harper does in the Aaron Falk books, exceptional. #mswl

Time for some #mswl tweets! Here are just some of the things I'm looking for right now.

In general, I rep adult mystery, romance, women's fiction, some SF/F, and upmarket projects, and love to see historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction.

Remember those shows PBS used to do like Frontier House and Regency House Party where modern peeps would "live" in the past? What about a book with that premise? Maybe a murder mystery. Maybe a rom com. I'm just spitballing, but I think I need this. #mswl

#amquerying writers, I only have 3 queries left! Send more! I'm currently looking for adult mystery, romance (esp historical & diverse historical), women's fiction, and upmarket projects, as well as nonfiction on the topics of food, material culture, & social history. #mswl

Bumping my #MSWL post from March since it still applies. I'm especially looking for historical romance, cozy and historical mysteries, and nonfiction. #amquerying and #amwriting authors, send me your lovelies!

Can anyone recommend a good cozy mystery in the vein of The Great British Baking Show? I want all the feelings / aesthetics of that show in a cozy. If not, well, #mswl.

#MSWL call for diverse mysteries like Kellye Garrett's Detective by Day, Tina Kashian's Kebab Kitchen, and Vivien Chien's Noodle Shop Mystery series.

I'd also really love to find a contemporary mystery where the setting is an equally important component of the story. Think Jane Harper's THE DRY. #mswl #amwriting #amquerying

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Feb 16

I'm also still looking for that super quirky, modern take on the traditional English village murder mystery.

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Feb 16

In mystery, again, I love historicals! Especially those with strong women who kick ass and take names. Think Deanna Raybourn and Sherry Thomas.

Who's up for some Friday afternoon #mswl tweets? Here are some specific things I'll be looking for at BookEnds!

As a general reminder, I rep adult romance, mystery, women's, and upmarket fiction, and have a deep and abiding love for historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction, especially on topics like the literary world, food, material culture, & social history.

There were South Asians in London during the Regency period. I'd like to read their stories. Mystery, romance, HistFic, NF. #MSWL
