Heading back to the office after a long day of editor meetings. Talked to one about a mutual love for wilderness fiction — suspense, women’s fiction, thriller. Now to find the book. #mswl

Replying to @CaroleTBeers

You can see all of our lists on the website: In particular I'm looking for commercial, upmarket & literary fiction, women's fiction, speculative fiction, mystery, suspense, thriller.... #MSWL

Not going to lie. I’m having #PitchWars FOMO. In case you’re an author feeling the same I’m here to remind you that I’m open to queries. Speculative fiction, women’s fiction, suspense, upmarket & more #mswl

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

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 · Jan 10

I'm looking mostly for mystery, suspense, thriller, upmarket and literary fiction. I'd also love more women's fiction. I want more stories like Whisper Network, My Sister the Serial Killer, and Bright River to name a few. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jan 9

I am very passionate about #MeToo, the Weinstein stories & in awe of the brave women who have come forward. I want more fiction like Whisper Network that tells these stories. #MSWL #WF #T #S -- upmarket or literary

I have regrets that after 20 years at @bookendslit I still haven't represented a cocktail book (although I have done wine). #MSWL for 2020 is that I desperately need a mixologist on my list. Query me here:…

Someone put the idea of a book on imposter syndrome in my head and now I can't let it go. #mswl

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 24 Sep 2019

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

I see a lot of WF about a woman whose partner has cheated on her. What about the other side? What if you never wanted them to leave them? What if you just wanted to be the other? #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 20 Sep 2019

Oh my goodness! I want this story in a book. #wf #s #t any genre about finding your partner on a dating profile, but did someone else set it up to ruin the relationship? #mswl…
