Hello #amquerying #writingcommunity - I open to submissions in less than 24 hours! Curious what I’m looking for? A full list can be found on the @MetamorphLitAg website or QueryTracker, but here’s a little #mswl to get you started. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS #MSWL - Diversity in all its beautiful forms. Stories that ask important questions. Neurodiverse voices and characters welcome. Lots of #ownvoices.

#MSWL a near-future America faces some cataclysm where we are the ones fleeing south to the safety of Mexico (no zombies pls, more real world). Except there’s a wall keeping us out. #POC #ownvoices author pls. Mexican protag dealing w/ US immigrants. Dual POV maybe?

1) I always want to see more writers with #ownvoices stories, across all genres and ages. #MSWL

Feeling FOMO after reading two new deals--one an Indian-American #ownvoices debut, the other about an American woman and her life in India with her husband. More of this in 2019, please. #MSWL

Goals for 2019 inspired by @NaomisLitPix & @SoCalledYALife
- Stop using "I think" so much
- Help the Agents of @bookendslit achieve their goals
- Rep more psychl suspense & women's fiction--especially diverse & own voices to my list. #MSWL

Send me your #ownvoices and diverse books! I want to read your stories. I want to be a part of bringing them to shelves.

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 11 Dec 2018

I want more diverse books and #ownvoices stories. I'd like to see books set in other countries like CRAZY RICH ASIANS or NEXT YEAR IN HAVANA. #MSWL

A lyrical #OwnVoices PB about a house blessing (or cleansing) ceremony/ritual. There are so many beautiful traditions out there from different cultural/religious backgrounds. #MSWL
