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

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

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

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 15 Jun 2019

In suspense/thriller I’m still looking for LGBTQ protagonists — maybe a series featuring a law officer or domestic suspense? #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 10 Jun 2019

Can I get this in a book? LGBTQ Friday Night Knitting Club please. #mswl nytimes.com/2019/06/07/nyr…

And where is the LGBTQ domestic suspense I've been asking and begging for? I still haven't received it. Still waiting. #MSWL I'm also still obsessed with Alaska & would be thrilled to see more books set there.

I am hungry for more women’s fiction & psych suspense & all fiction featuring POC, trans, & LGBTQ characters. #ownvoices #mswl query me QueryMe.Online/Jessica_Faust

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 16 Feb 2019

A reminder if you’ve missed previous #mswl I have been looking for more adult fiction & nonfiction by trans authors. There is space for you. QueryMe.Online/Jessica_Faust

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 30 Jan 2019

I don't get enough psychological suspense from POC and stories about POC. I'd also like to see more LGBTQ psychological suspense. Honestly, this goes for all genres I rep, but right now this is what I'm hungry for #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 11 Dec 2018

I'm also looking for more women's fiction. I'd like mother/child stories (this works in suspense too) and LGBTQ mother/father stories. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 27 Sep 2018

And of course in fiction I'm still and always looking for mystery, suspense, domestic suspense, women's fiction and mom stories---bonus for LGBTQ characters. #MSWL

I'll be quite honest, I'm tired of the white, male, straight cop. It isn't that I won't read or consider, I'm just bored and I don't want to be bored. Give me the lesbian mother fighting for her child or the POC cop. Give me more women and give me something I haven't seen #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 29 Aug 2018

Give me GONE GIRL (for lack of a better comp) with POC, give me OTHER PEOPLE'S HOUSES with POC, give me the LGBTQ version of BIG LITTLE LIES, give me NEXT YEAR IN HAVANA, give me CRAZY RICH ASIANS #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 27 Aug 2018

I read a book where a female cop wakes up next to her partner. I was so disappointed when her partner was male. Give me the mystery/suspense with the lesbian cop living her life. #MSWL
