I just ran across this book on Goodreads, and it sounds so wonderfully delightful. If you have a contemporary romcom with a fun hook like this and you're looking for an agent, send me a query! #mswl

I've been getting some really wonderful nonfiction queries, so keep 'em coming! Recent books I've loved are Sarah Smarsh's HEARTLAND & Victoria Johnson's AMERICAN EDEN, while books I'm looking forward to include Casey Cep's FURIOUS HOURS & Robert Macfarlane's UNDERLAND. #mswl

Well, I somehow missed December, but here's my visual #MSWL for this month. Send me books like these I can read in front of the fireplace this frigid January!

I am DYING to read this book. Seriously, much excite.

So, as a reminder, if you have a nonfiction project like this, I will always, always want to see it. #mswl

I'd love to see some adult fiction set in the seedy, gritty underbelly of an 18th- or 19th-century city. A super immersive setting with magic? A mystery? Both?? Whaddaya got for me #amquerying writers? #mswl

Replying to @bookendslit

My 2019 goal is more nonfiction. Bring me your food histories, social histories, material culture proposals, true crime projects, gimme all of 'em. Basically, if it's nonfiction, I wanna see it. #mswl

I'll send out some more in-depth #mswl tweets next week, but in the meantime, two things I'd really love to see more of in my inbox are dual timeline narratives and crime / mystery novels, historical or contemporary. Send 'em!

I'm a few days late, but here's my visual #MSWL for November. Send me books like these, please and thank you!

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 13 Nov 2018

Nonfiction: books about food (always!), travel, history, art, and culture. I love to see projects that show the intersections of these topics. For instance, I'd love to see one on food deserts in America and how they disproportionately affect minority communities. #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 13 Nov 2018

Fantasy & Sci-Fi: I gravitate towards fantasy that's very much grounded in the real world, and SF that's light on the sci, heavy on the fi. Give me characters I can't let go of with rich world building and a runaway plot. #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 13 Nov 2018

Mystery: historical--again, especially diverse historical--cozies, and mysteries with so much atmosphere you can practically wring it out of the pages. If your setting is integral to your story, I want to see it! #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 13 Nov 2018

Thrillers: I'm still open to domestic thrillers and psychological suspense, but I'd love to see some that don't feature a somehow "damaged" woman as the protagonist. Where are my ordinary women? #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 13 Nov 2018

Time for some #mswl tweets! Here's a peek at what I'd love to see in my query inbox. Romance: historical--especially diverse historical--rom suspense, and contemp romcom. As a general rule, I'm far more likely to fall for a story that makes me laugh than one that makes me cry.
