I am still actively looking for new clients. Women’s fiction is on my #MSWL. I’d love to find some beach reads and romance that crosses over into the women’s fiction realm. I’m also hungry for more nonfiction—especially narrative and/or those with a culinary bent.

Jessica Alvarez @AgentJessicaA · 5 Jan 2018

Why, oh why, don’t I have more culinary books? Women’s fiction, romance, mystery, nonfiction, whatever. Send them to me to tide me over as I wait for more Top Chef. #MSWL

I’d love to see more category romance. I miss my Harlequin days of working on it. Would especially love to see projects for Presents, Desire, Intrigue, and Love Inspired. But send it all to me! #MSWL

From an editor's lips to my #MSWL: a contemp shark-themed romance. Sharks can't be bad in it! Also, a believable astronaut romance. #RWA17

I'm caught up on queries & reading March submissions. I’m hungry to find some new rom & WF clients, see for my #MSWL

Another ripped from the headlines #MSWL. Who can give me an #ownvoices romance based on this?…

Jessica Alvarez @AgentJessicaA · 8 Feb 2017

Another special interest is adoption. I want more adoption stories in women’s fiction and romance but authenticity is very important. #MSWL

Jessica Alvarez @AgentJessicaA · 8 Feb 2017

I want contemp romance w #diversity and #ownvoices. I have a special interest in Asian characters but want to see more of all groups! #MSWL

Jessica Alvarez @AgentJessicaA · 8 Feb 2017

I am BEGGING you for Amish romance and women’s fiction! Inspirational or not. Please! #MSWL

Jessica Alvarez @AgentJessicaA · 9 Jan 2017

Inspirational (aka Christian) fiction, particularly romance, is on my #MSWL. Historical or contemporary. And I’d LOVE to see more Amish.

Just learned about Renew Breakup Bootcamp ( Anyone have a breakup bootcamp book for me? Romance or WF? #MSWL

Jessica Alvarez @AgentJessicaA · 28 Oct 2016

As a former @HarlequinBooks editor, category romance is always on my #MSWL.

Jessica Alvarez @AgentJessicaA · 28 Oct 2016

I love me a good forbidden or taboo romance. The hotter, the better. #MSWL

Jessica Alvarez @AgentJessicaA · 28 Oct 2016

Please send me some inspirational romances! I’m particularly looking for contemporaries and Amish! #MSWL

Jessica Alvarez @AgentJessicaA · 13 Sep 2016

Romance is always on my #MSWL. I’d love to find a sexy lumberjack and, opposite end of the spectrum, an inspirational Amish romance.

Jessica Alvarez @AgentJessicaA · 12 May 2016

I’d love more category romantic suspense. I’ve great clients like @LaraLacombe, @m_cutler, & @melindawrites but I love RS & want more! #MSWL
