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 · 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

Feeling FOMO after reading two new deals--one an Indian-American #ownvoices debut, the other about an American woman and her life in India with her husband. More of this in 2019, please. #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 · 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

While #ownvoices and #diversebooks have caught on in YA, I'm still struggling to see it in adult and, frankly, that's what I want more of. #MSWL My target genres right now are: literary & upmarket fiction, mystery, suspense, thriller, & women's fiction.

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

I still want #ownvoices set outside the US of all types, but I'm (at least for now) especially interested in fish out of water #ownvoices which allows the reader to see it through the eyes of an outsider who has been let inside. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 20 Jul 2018

Two of my top books for 2018 so far are #ownvoices set in countries outside the US (Singapore & Cuba). These are the types of books I want more of #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 19 Jul 2018

It's not lost on me that some of my top books of the year are #ownvoices Inspiring me to write up an #MSWL calling for more #ownvoices in my Query inbox: QueryMe.Online/Jessica_Faust

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 7 Jun 2018

I would love more thrillers and suspense, #ownvoices and otherwise, & I'm always looking for mysteries #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 25 May 2018

Give me settings outside of the United States too. #ownvoices set in India, Ireland, Indonesia... other countries too, but I was suddenly captivated by "I" #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 · 25 May 2018

I'm always looking for domestic suspense, especially something #ownvoices & family-related (not just husband and wife) #MSWL
