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 @BookEndsJessicaAs a woman in business, I read business books & listen to podcasts & seek out those by women. But I’m discouraged that most are still written by white men. Is there a belief that the audience for these books will only read white men?
I’d like to see more books by POC & women that are written for ALL business owners & entrepreneurs. #mswl just because a book is written by a woman why do we target only women in the subject?
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 @BookEndsJessicaWhile #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.
I would love to see more POC & LGBTQ characters starring in all of these areas. I want them living their best (or not best) lives, but I'm not as interested in coming out stories as such. #MSWL
