For all of you finishing up your WIPs this holiday weekend, I'm reposting my #MSWL blog. I'm caught up on all queries and have responded to requested materials sent before April 15th. bookendsliterary.com/2018/03/07/kim…

Today's running away from me a bit, so I'm not sure I'll get a chance to peruse #DVpit. But I'm hungry for all diverse and #ownvoices books in #WF #Rom and #YA. #Dis is especially close to my heart. Query me here: QueryMe.Online/1008 #MSWL

After devouring The Handmaid's Tale, I marathoned #AliasGrace on @netflix. Now kind of obsessed with the idea of finding historical suspense /fiction inspired by true crimes of a bygone era. #MSWL

I'd like to see a novel that tackles the issue of #autism and police interaction, particularly for a POC on the spectrum, as discussed in this article by @hollyrpeete: huffingtonpost.com/entry/autism-a… #autismmom #MSWL #YA #WF

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 9 Oct 2017

I tend to like dual timelines/narratives etc. in #WF, as long as it all speaks to a big central storyline. #MSWL

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 9 Oct 2017

Would love to see #WF exploring polarized political climate in everyday job/society/family. Needs dynamic situation to highlight it. #MSWL

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 9 Oct 2017

#MSWL I'm not getting enough #WF that hugs that line of domestic suspense ala Liane Moriarty. Dark and twisty, please!

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 9 Oct 2017

Feels like #MSWL time. I'm desperate for more commercial #WF. Something emotional w/ a unique hook. Needs to feel different and fresh.

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 15 Aug 2017

Late to this party, but still want in. Just found Penny Dreadful. I'd love YA historical in dark, dirty London or w/ a Ms. Ives type. #MSWL

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 22 Jun 2017

Finishing 1st season of #Riverdale on #Netflix. Would love #YA w/ smart, brooding loner MC like Jughead or campy noir w/ a Cheryl. #MSWL

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 12 Jun 2017

Can't wait to see this! Would jump all over #WF or #YA like this in my inbox! #MSWL #TheBigSick youtube.com/watch?v=PJmpSM…

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 8 Jun 2017

An all-time fave of mine is Hedges' WHAT'S EATING GILBERT GRAPE. Would love #YA or #WF with same small-town quirk and heart. #MSWL #PitMad

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 5 Jun 2017

I would love anything reminiscent of "Mozart in the Jungle" in #WF or #YA. #MSWL

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 8 Feb 2017

Ordered Just My Luck because still on Cammie McGovern kick, it's MG version of my YA #MSWL & sounds like my daughter's story. #AutismSibling

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 8 Feb 2017

Would love WF or YA featuring mixed race families portrayed w/ the same kind of heart and drama as #ThisIsUS #MSWL #ownvoices #diversebooks

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 8 Feb 2017

Esp. interested in YA from POV of typical teen w/ special needs sibling & the range of emotions and complicated reliationships there. #MSWL

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · 8 Feb 2017

Still looking for YA & WF from POV of person with special needs and/or family member, highlighting ups & downs, humor & challenges. #MSWL
