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

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 · Jan 30

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 @BookEndsJessica · Jan 29

If you're meeting with me at the @SDSUWritersConf I'm mostly looking for mysteries, women's fiction, suspense, thrillers, literary and upmarket fiction. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 17 Dec 2018

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

Drooling over some recent deal announcements over here at @bookendslit Congratulations to all authors, agents and editors. I would love to see more fiction with dogs, especially suspense/mystery/thriller #amquerying #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 11 Dec 2018

I'm also seeking upmarket and literary fiction along the same lines I've outlined above. Suspense, mother/child stories, stories of women and the challenges they face. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 11 Dec 2018

I'm also looking for more women's fiction. I'd like mother/child stories (this works in suspense too) and LGBTQ mother/father stories. #MSWL

As the year comes to an end and queries slow I start to think about what I'd like to see come 2019. #MSWL.

I'm still looking for domestic suspense and thrillers, aka psychological suspense. I'd especially like stories featuring women in situations that aren't classic husband/wife stories. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 27 Sep 2018

And of course in fiction I'm still and always looking for mystery, suspense, domestic suspense, women's fiction and mom stories---bonus for LGBTQ characters. #MSWL

@BookEndsJessica What kinds of crime stories interest you?

Replying to @Brent_Dragoo

I'm most interested in mysteries/thrillers/suspense/domestic suspense/thrillers-- anything with a female protagonist. I'm not usually a fan of the spy thriller or international thriller, although I would love more international suspense/mystery. #askagent #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 6 Sep 2018

I will not be able to spend a lot of time in #PitMad, but I am open to queries and hungry. #MSWL: mystery, suspense, thriller, women's fiction, upmarket & literary adult fiction. Query me here: querymanager.com/query/Jessica_…

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 · 27 Aug 2018

I read a book where a female cop wakes up next to her partner. I was so disappointed when her partner was male. Give me the mystery/suspense with the lesbian cop living her life. #MSWL

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 16 Aug 2018

Always seeking domestic suspense or psych suspense--would love mother/child stories, LGBTQ stories, stories other than husband/wife would be my preference right now #MSWL
