I'd also like to see fun, sweary, powerful, in your face self-help nonfiction--like YOU ARE A BADASS or THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F**CK, but I'd like them to be written by women. #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

Thank you @WF_Writers for including me in your agency spotlight. It's been fun to see all of the #WF queries come in. #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

I desperately need upmarket, literary or women's fiction that takes a close look at the opioid epidemic. Maybe a person dealing with a child, spouse, or other who is addicted? Or a family saga ala Bull Mountain #MSWL

Hey #amquerying authors! Here's what the BookEnds agents are dying to see in their inboxes. #MSWL twitter.com/bookendslit/st…

I was late coming to the thread so I'll add mine in now. I'd like more books like Crazy Rich Asians. I'm in the mood for something funny and light. #diversebooks a plus or women's fiction. #amquerying #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 26 Jul 2018

I still have a passion for business building and personal growth books, especially by women & marginalized authors. Think THE ONE THING & YOU ARE A BADASS. #MSWL

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

If you are writing women's fiction, domestic suspense, own voices fiction, suspense, thrillers, mysteries, upmarket or literary fiction you can query me here: QueryMe.Online/Jessica_Faust -- just know your word count. #MSWL #querytip

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 19 Jul 2018

I want women's fiction with a strong romantic thread. Former romance authors maybe? #RWA19 #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 19 Jul 2018

I want books set in other countries that teach me about the culture, from more serious women's fiction #WF to fun fiction like Crazy Rich Asians. I LOVE learning about other worlds and cultures. #mswl

@BookEndsJessica What's your current dream submission? #askagent

Replying to @chelseasfiction

Does it just have to be one dream submission? I'd love a dual timeline women's fiction too, but ala Next Year in Havana featuring diverse voices. #askagent #MSWL

Must find this... pic.twitter.com/qzibX1IZIz

Not only do I NEED to find this shop #GF, but there is a book in here I desperately need to read. #MSWL women's fiction or suspense or mystery? You decide.

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 14 Jun 2018

I really want a #MeToo story--women's fiction, domestic suspense, mystery... #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 14 Jun 2018

Books set in towns/cities down on their luck. Towns that once thrived on an industry that now isn't thriving--cotton, tobacco, auto industry, factories, mining, etc. #MSWL --suspense, mystery, women's fiction or other

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 14 Jun 2018

Books set in New Zealand or Australia (or surrounding areas) -- women's fiction or suspense #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 14 Jun 2018

I also really want a women's fiction dual narrative, ideally dual timeline as well. Although one or the other works (no time travel please) #MSWL

I'm always in @PublishersLunch checking up on latest deals. Sometimes they are my best #MSWL ideas.

Like this: Young Adult Fiction: Lindsey Roth Culli's SAY YES SUMMER, about a girl who decides to just say yes to everything, --- I'd LOVE to see the women's fiction version #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 25 May 2018

I really like books about moms and cannot believe I really don't have books about moms. Women's fiction or domestic suspense #MSWL
