So far 2020 query numbers are higher than they’ve ever been. Thank you authors for giving me a chance to review your book. Seeking suspense, thriller, mystery, women’s, upmarket & literary fiction. #MSWL

In speculative fiction I’d like to see more climate-related books. Just learned about popping shrimp. Crazy. Books like Dry for adult audiences. #queryme #MSWL querymanager.com/query/Jessica_…

Heading back to the office after a long day of editor meetings. Talked to one about a mutual love for wilderness fiction — suspense, women’s fiction, thriller. Now to find the book. #mswl

The Wall Street Journal @WSJ

The children of the college admissions scandal grapple with the fallout. “I don’t know who you are anymore, mom.” on.wsj.com/2RpMF4R

This is a book I'd like to see. Parents who go too far because they think they're protecting their kids. This is both fiction and nonfiction depending on your take. #mswl

Passions and personal interests hugely inform any agent's list. Mine include: Minnesota, Hockey, Cooking/Food, Wine/Cocktails, motherhood, business ownership, dogs, diversity, equality, women, books/reading. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jan 10

As mentioned yesterday, I also really want a fun cocktail book, books connected to #MeToo, books on diversity, and books set in other countries. #MSWL
