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

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

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

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 31

Guess who needs more queries. #hungry for suspense, upmarket, women’s fiction, thriller, literary, nonfiction, #ownvoices #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.”

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

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 18 Jun 2019

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 18 Jun 2019

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 18 Jun 2019

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...

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 18 Jun 2019

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 · 18 Jun 2019

Career books that teach those new to the job market what to expect aka Cynthia Shapiro's Corporate Confidential #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 · 18 Jun 2019

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 15 Jun 2019

I’m still waiting on a #metoo book — suspense, women’s fiction... #MSWL And, as always, my genres are women’s fiction, suspense, mystery, upmarket, literary, nonfiction. I’m sure I missed something. 😉

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 15 Jun 2019

And in nonfiction I want more women & AOC in business & personal development. I also want books like So You Want to Talk About Race #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 27 Apr 2019

This has been a good week for catching up on submissions. My #MSWL hasn’t changed much—women’s fiction, suspense, upmarket & literary. Also nonfiction (no memoir please). My inbox has room.
