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 · Jun 15

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

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

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 · 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

Also, I do NOT take on new clients for novellas. #MSWL #querytip

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 · 26 Apr 2018

Suspense of all types, especially psychological. Thrillers, mysteries, upmarket and literary as well as commercial. Women's fiction and anything and everything in between. #MSWL #DVPit

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 25 Apr 2018

Since I'm stuck on the phone with the bank I'll check out #dvpit, but don't forget that I'm actively seeking #ownvoices in adult--thriller, women's fiction, suspense, upmarket & literary. #MSWL query me in case I miss your pitch.

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 12 Apr 2018

And moms! Give me a good PTO mom psych suspense/thriller #MSWL okay, it doesn't have to exactly be the PTO, but the school mom, sports mom, that type of mom thing.

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 12 Apr 2018

I would also like to see psychological suspense/thrillers with children, but not YA. I want adult stories of parents or something and children. #MSWL
