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

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 · 2 Sep 2018

I want THE ONE THING, THE 4-HOUR WORKWEEK & START WITH WHY, but written by POC & women. #mswl

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

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 29 Aug 2018

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.
