I see a lot of WF about a woman whose partner has cheated on her. What about the other side? What if you never wanted them to leave them? What if you just wanted to be the other? #MSWL

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 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

You know what I don't have enough on my list? Dog fiction. Preferably not from the dog's POV, but a book in which a dog plays a prominent role in the protagonist's life--#WF #S or other #MSWL

The other day I was asked to promise that when a friend got in her 90s I would make sure she got a glass of wine every day. This book #MSWL -- #WF or #S about a woman who makes a promise & now she must keep it.

I’m still waiting on a #metoo book — suspense, women’s fiction... #MSWL And, as always, my genres are women’s fiction, suspense, mystery, upmarket, literary, nonfiction. I’m sure I missed something. 😉

Reading moods also inform my #MSWL Current mood—fun women’s fiction.

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?

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Apr 27

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.

In YA there exist friendship breakup books. This is a hard fact of the teen years. It doesn’t end in adulthood. I’d like to see these books in women’s fiction. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Mar 7

Thank you @jamerrson for creating this beautiful art. Yes! I’m seeking suspense & women’s fiction, literary, upmarket, & nonfiction and desperate for more diverse voices #mswl

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Feb 16

I am hungry for more women’s fiction & psych suspense & all fiction featuring POC, trans, & LGBTQ characters. #ownvoices #mswl query me QueryMe.Online/Jessica_Faust

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jan 24

New #MSWL coming your way. Women's fiction about a mother/child relationship when the mother either over shares on social media or is a social media celebrity, using her children as fodder. Hmmmm

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 17 Dec 2018

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 @BookEndsJessica · 11 Dec 2018

I'm also seeking upmarket and literary fiction along the same lines I've outlined above. Suspense, mother/child stories, stories of women and the challenges they face. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 11 Dec 2018

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

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
