I'm having such fun building my nonfiction list. I want more mind/body/spirit books. Like the Cannabis/CBD book I represent. Essential oils, meditation... #MSWL

I see a lot of WF about a woman whose partner has cheated on her. What about the other side? What if you never wanted them to leave them? What if you just wanted to be the other? #MSWL

Oh my goodness! I want this story in a book. #wf #s #t any genre about finding your partner on a dating profile, but did someone else set it up to ruin the relationship? #mswl podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/inv…

I had a few minutes to sit with this brilliantly suspenseful summer read. The kind of book I love representing.

I read a ton of mystery/thriller/suspense submissions as well as women's fiction & I find that I've become increasingly disappointed when the love interest pops in and it's not a LGBTQ character. Where are my LGBTQ characters? #MSWL

When I said I like books that are light & fun, that doesn’t mean they aren’t ripe with emotion. I love a good emotional roller coaster in a book. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jun 22

I love stories about people who need to rethink their dreams. We all have them & often hold on to them well past their expiration dates. I want the story of that person realizing maybe they need a different dream. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jun 22

I definitely read to the seasons. Summer is a desire for fun & light. Last summer I was obsessed with @kevinkwanbooks — right now it’s this. Which means my #MSWL is fun & light.

Also books on alternative health like CBD oils, essential oils and others. But it all needs to be different and new and the author platform for every single one of these ideas matters. #MSWL

Melinda Wenner Moyer's HOW TO RAISE KIDS WHO AREN'T ASSHOLES, a science-based guide that sifts through the conflicting advice parents get on the tough questions (What if my son is acting sort of sexist? What if my daughter makes a racially insensitive remark?) #MSWL

I want more on navigating life and career and motherhood and different and new parenting books. #MSWL Books like 10 Conversations to Have with Sons and those that address #METoo and books like...

A real resume and cover letter book so I don't need to redo what my interns have "learned" in college. One that really shows what employees want. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jun 18

Career books that teach those new to the job market what to expect aka Cynthia Shapiro's Corporate Confidential #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jun 18

books on negotiation, but for career negotiators, not those negotiating for a job. I'd like books on diversity like White Fragility or So You Want to Talk About Race. I want books by women for women and especially for everyone. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jun 18

My submission guidelines for NF are a little vague I know. I was asked for specifics. bookendsliterary.com/submissions/ So...business books on leadership, coaching, personal development like You Are a Badass or the Subtle Art of Not Giving a F***k, #MSWL

You know what I don't have enough on my list? Dog fiction. Preferably not from the dog's POV, but a book in which a dog plays a prominent role in the protagonist's life--#WF #S or other #MSWL
