#MSWL for nonfiction projects about books and authors as well! Caroline Fraser's PRAIRIE FIRES, Anne Boyd Rioux's MEG, JO, BETH, AMY, John Matteson's EDEN'S OUTCASTS, and Deborah Lutz's THE BRONTE CABINET are all great examples of the types of projects I'd love to see.

In narrative nonfiction: Books about food, material culture, art, literature, and history always top the list, and I'm particularly interested in projects that explore how many of these topics intersect with race, gender, and politics. #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.

Anyone who knows I studied the history of decorative arts in grad school can probably figure out I'm a big material culture nerd. Are you working on a nonfiction project like Glenn Adamson's FEWER, BETTER THINGS or Lara Maiklem's upcoming MUDLARK? I'd love to see them! #mswl

#mswl call for NF that explores science / nature / the outdoors in the ways of Paul Bogard's THE END OF NIGHT, Robert Moor's ON TRAILS, Porter Fox's NORTHLAND, James Edward Mills' THE ADVENTURE GAP, and Victoria Johnson's AMERICAN EDEN.

#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

Your semi-regular reminder that I am always interested in stories about food, be they fiction or nonfiction. #MSWL

A quick reminder that I am always open to projects like these! If you have a book about food, fiction or nonfiction, I want to see it. #mswl

Further to my earlier #mswl posts, the Gravy podcast is one of my very, very favorites. If you're writing a narrative nonfiction book in this vein, I'd love to see it. #amwriting #amquerying

In narrative nonfiction, I'd love to see more food-centered books, especially those exploring forgotten aspects of our food history or that look at the intersections of race, feminism, and food. Think THE COOKING GENE or WHAT SHE ATE.

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

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 16 Aug 2017

If you have a NF project that looks at forgotten history of food in this way, I will always want to see it. #MSWL

Super specific #mswl: Narr NF in the style of Tony Horwitz or Bill Bryson which focuses on The Wilderness Road. Anybody have that??
