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 · Jun 18

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jun 18

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. 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 · Jun 15

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 · Jun 15

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 · Apr 27

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.

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Mar 13

I had a really fun lunch yesterday with a nonfiction business editor and now I'm totally fired up to find more business/career/personal empowerment books especially by AOC & women, but for all readers. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Mar 7

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Feb 16

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 · Jan 29

I'm also looking for nonfiction, but not memoirs. I prefer business, personal empowerment, and self-help books #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 2 Nov 2018

I've gotten back into the nonfiction game and am absolutely loving it. Here are some #Mswl leadership & management books, especially written by women, finance guides, personal empowerment (and if all of these are personally empowering all the better.

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 29 Aug 2018

As you know I've been on the hunt for more #ownvoices and #diversebooks in nonfiction & fiction in mystery, suspense, thriller, upmarket & literary, & women's fiction. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 29 Aug 2018

I'd also like to see fun, sweary, powerful, in your face self-help nonfiction--like YOU ARE A BADASS or THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F**CK, but I'd like them to be written by women. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 2 Aug 2018

I think it's fair to say that this is a mission for everyone at @bookendslit -- to acquire more LGBTQ authors and books in both fiction and nonfiction, for kids and adults #MSWL #diversebooks

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 31 Jul 2018

I've been very particular about the nonfiction queries in my inbox. One thing I've noticed in particular is that I really want more female voices in my personal empowerment, self-improvement & business titles. #MSWL
