Re-upping my #mswl for a book set in the 1930s. Such an important decade, but one that often gets lost with so much focus on books set in the '20s and during WWII.

I've had super grabby hands at the library lately, so here's a bonus visual #mswl for June!

I'd love to see some more dual timeline novels in my query inbox. Send 'em over! #mswl

I'm way behind in these, but here, finally, is another visual #mswl. A few books from my current TBR pile that give you an idea of what I'd love to see in my query inbox.

Warm weather is finally here, and I'd love to see some fun, summery, laugh-out-loud romcoms in my query box! Send 'em if you got 'em! #MSWL

I'd love to see some more mysteries, thrillers, and crime novels in my query box! I'm in a murdery mood, so whaddaya got for me? #mswl

Here is March's visual #mswl, a pile of books on my TBR list that are great examples of the types of projects I'm looking for in my query box. Send 'em if you got 'em!

So, as you can see, my nonfiction tastes are pretty varied, and I'm open to seeing a range of projects. If you have something you think would be a great fit, you can find my submission guidelines and upload your materials at QueryMe.Online/AmandaJain. #mswl

MEMOIR: I'm interested in memoirs that have a really interesting hook like Rachael Hanel's WE'LL BE THE LAST ONES TO LET YOU DOWN. Sarah Smarsh's HEARTLAND bowled me over with its writing, and I'm looking forward to reading Casey Gerald's THERE WILL BE NO MIRACLES HERE. #mswl

But I would love to see some projects that open up this space and give a wider perspective. Books like Rahawa Haile's forthcoming IN OPEN COUNTRY and Edward James Mills' THE ADVENTURE GAP are great examples. #mswl

TRAVEL / THE OUTDOORS / THE WORLD AT LARGE: Who doesn't love a good armchair exploration? Bonus points if it makes me laugh or combines travel with history. Bill Bryson and Tony Horwitz are favorites of mine... #mswl

MATERIAL CULTURE: The subject I studied in grad school, and a topic near and dear to my heart. Lara Maiklem's MUDLARK, Marilyn Johnson's LIVES IN RUINS, Glenn Adamson's FEWER, BETTER THINGS, and Samuel Redman's BONE ROOMS are all great examples. #mswl
