I’ve been inspired to put down my book & pick up queries. Focusing on works by BIPOC, Latinx, LGBTQ (esp Trans) authors in fiction & nonfiction #mswl

Deep diving into books all weekend. Well books & baking. Finding I really gravitate toward multi-generational family stories right now. Also, yesterday I baked pie, cookies, banana bread & then made puttanesca. #mswl

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · May 22

The perfect weekend to put it out there that I’ve long wanted to add cocktail, wine & beer books to my list. #mswl also more lifestyle books in general. @AgentJessicaA is your agent for cookbooks. @bookendslit

As well as #ownvoices and stories set outside the United States. I want stories of survival and grief and characters who overcome obstacles. Ah, who am I kidding? I just want a good book to lose myself in. #MSWL

In fiction I definitely want more upmarket, literary, women's fiction as well as suspense, thriller, and mystery. I'm looking for women's stories, personal growth, friendship stories (a friendship breakup book). #LGBTQ stories and authors #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · May 19

I've been craving nonfiction about change, the new normal, business, leadership, cocktails, women's health, personal development, social issues, current affairs, mind, body, spirit. Try me if you're not sure. #MSWL

Now that I have a kindle again I'm back to reading submissions--and on the hunt for new clients. My #MSWL and genres can be found on our website -- some hints in the thread

At @bookendslit we've established an incredible list of cozy writers. Believe it or not, we are still looking for cozies. I'd love to see cozies that appeal to a younger & more diverse audience. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Apr 22

Wow! I was thrilled to see not one, but two books featuring trans protagonists in today's @PublishersLunch -- I am actively seeking more trans writers and protagonists for my list. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Apr 10

I need more books with dogs on my list--fiction and nonfiction. I think, honestly, I need more dogs in my life, but this is a good place to start. #MSWL

I'm trying to convince the Agents of @bookendslit to show up on YouTube more, like these fun videos we did on query pet peeves & our #MSWL -- what other topics would you like to hear about? Query Pet Peeves!

& the story of 13 women who joined an Arctic expedition, but not all came back (this was historical, I'd like contemporary). congratulations to both of these authors & their agents. #MSWL

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Feb 21

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…
