In fiction I definitely want more upmarket, literary, women's fiction as well as suspense, thriller, and mystery. I'm looking for women's stories, personal growth, friendship stories (a friendship breakup book). #LGBTQ stories and authors #MSWL

So far 2020 query numbers are higher than they’ve ever been. Thank you authors for giving me a chance to review your book. Seeking suspense, thriller, mystery, women’s, upmarket & literary fiction. #MSWL

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

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

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

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 podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/inv…

I had a few minutes to sit with this brilliantly suspenseful summer read. The kind of book I love representing.

I read a ton of mystery/thriller/suspense submissions as well as women's fiction & I find that I've become increasingly disappointed when the love interest pops in and it's not a LGBTQ character. Where are my LGBTQ characters? #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 15 Jun 2019

In suspense/thriller I’m still looking for LGBTQ protagonists — maybe a series featuring a law officer or domestic suspense? #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 29 Jan 2019

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

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

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

@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
