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 · Feb 25

Also seeking nonfiction — business, career, mind, body, spirit, personal development, social & cultural issues, current affairs, race, diversity & women. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jan 16

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 18 Jun 2019

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 · 7 Mar 2019

Thank you @jamerrson for creating this beautiful art. Yes! I’m seeking suspense & women’s fiction, literary, upmarket, & nonfiction and desperate for more diverse voices #mswl

Goals for 2019 inspired by @NaomisLitPix & @SoCalledYALife
- Stop using "I think" so much
- Help the Agents of @bookendslit achieve their goals
- Rep more psychl suspense & women's fiction--especially diverse & own voices to my list. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 11 Dec 2018

I want more diverse books and #ownvoices stories. I'd like to see books set in other countries like CRAZY RICH ASIANS or NEXT YEAR IN HAVANA. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 16 Aug 2018

In general, my #MSWL includes mystery, suspense, thriller, women's fiction, upmarket & literary fiction. I want more #ownvoices in all things and more #diversebooks #thursdaythoughts

Hey #amquerying authors! Here's what the BookEnds agents are dying to see in their inboxes. #MSWL twitter.com/bookendslit/st…

I was late coming to the thread so I'll add mine in now. I'd like more books like Crazy Rich Asians. I'm in the mood for something funny and light. #diversebooks a plus or women's fiction. #amquerying #MSWL

@BookEndsJessica What's your current dream submission? #askagent

Replying to @chelseasfiction

Does it just have to be one dream submission? I'd love a dual timeline women's fiction too, but ala Next Year in Havana featuring diverse voices. #askagent #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 25 May 2018

Everything I listed above in #ownvoices. I'm okay if it's not #ownvoices, but I would like more #diversebooks & #ownvoices across the board. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 13 Apr 2018

.@bookendslit has always been a leader in the cozy mystery market, but the one thing we are missing is more diversity in cozies. #Ownvoices authors, please bring us cozies (and mysteries of all kinds). #MSWL @RachMBrooks

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 10 Apr 2018

You know what I'm not seeing enough of? I'm not seeing enough diverse, #ownvoices psychological suspense. Give me something other than the white urban/suburban couple, please. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 16 Mar 2018

Plot points I'd love to see #MSWL -- trapped in the wilderness, mom/school/PTO type stories, set in Alaska, magical food & always #ownvoices #diversebooks

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 15 Mar 2018

I am scouring my inbox for psychological fiction, the next Big Little Lies, & more #ownvoices and #diversebooks #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 13 Mar 2018

I am definitely looking for more psychological suspense/thrillers. I'd really love more #diversebooks #ownvoices in that genre #mswl
