I would love to see some really grounded sci-fi in my query inbox, the kind where you come to care deeply about the characters and their relationships. Basically, I want something that reminds me of watching Battlestar Galactica. #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

Does anyone know of any books with a chaiwalla as the main character? It seems to me the job would allow for unprecedented access to the ins and outs of other people's lives, their conversations, their secrets. #MSWL if not.

If you have a super cool new twist on a retelling like Alexa Donne's BRIGHTLY BURNING (except for adults), I wanna see it! #MSWL

Oh, don't mind me, just my weekly plea for more diverse historical romance. kthx #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Apr 6

Querying authors! I'm looking for more mystery and suspense in my query box. Cozies, historicals, domestic and psych suspense. Find me here to submit a query: QueryMe.Online/AmandaJain. #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.

Another #mswl for you that I'll keep retweeting until the end of time. If you write the kind of travel / history books like Tony Horwitz's BLUE LATITUDES and A VOYAGE LONG AND STRANGE, or Rinker Buck's THE OREGON TRAIL, I wanna see it!

There are hints of springtime in the air, so I'd love to see some outdoorsy romance or women's fiction. Give me competing archaeologists, park rangers, adventure guides, farmer's market rivals, anything! #mswl #mswlmadness

After a convo on Twitter last week with an author, I keep thinking of a book that's a mashup of the movies Bad Moms and Shaun of the Dead. Does one exist that someone could rec? If not, #mswl. #mswlmadness

I would love to see a super atmospheric Southern Gothic novel in my inbox! #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Feb 26

Contemporary or historical romance with a hint (or more) of magic. #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Feb 23

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

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
