That's it, more women's fiction with girls trips. Or, a domestic suspense featuring women's friendships (maybe a girls trip). #MSWL I also love the idea of a book featuring new and old wives/spouses.
I was helping @jamerrson craft his #MSWL & realized I should post a few of my own. I'd love to see wine-related women's fiction -- set a vineyard, a girls trip, like Sideways, but featuring friendships. A birthday trip? Girls trip?
This has been a good week for catching up on submissions. My #MSWL hasn’t changed much—women’s fiction, suspense, upmarket & literary. Also nonfiction (no memoir please). My inbox has room.
James McGowan @jamerrson.@BookEndsJessica and I have been super interested in this "sharenting" craze. We think it would make for so many good books. #MSWL fastcompany.com/90315706/kids-…
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
Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessicaAs 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
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 @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
