Atlas Obscura @atlasobscuraIn southern Bali sits an abandoned Boeing 737. It’s not at an airport or an airplane boneyard. Instead, it sits in a field near some kind of limestone quarry, and no one quite knows how it got there. The plane has now become a tourist attraction in its own right. pic.twitter.com/mpMFhiUudM

In narrative nonfiction, I'd love to see more food-centered books, especially those exploring forgotten aspects of our food history or that look at the intersections of race, feminism, and food. Think THE COOKING GENE or WHAT SHE ATE.
In contemporary romance, I am much more likely to fall in love with a book that makes me laugh vs one that makes me cry. I'm not a huge fan of billionaires or motorcycle clubs, so those are probably best sent to other agents who love them.
Now for some specifics! In romance, I am particularly interested in historical romances, and would love to see more diversity in my submissions. Let's see the Regency, Victorian, and Edwardian periods through different eyes.
Amanda Jain @wensday95Who's up for some Friday afternoon #mswl tweets? Here are some specific things I'll be looking for at BookEnds!
As a general reminder, I rep adult romance, mystery, women's, and upmarket fiction, and have a deep and abiding love for historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction, especially on topics like the literary world, food, material culture, & social history.
Amanda Jain @wensday95I didn't get to peek at #KissPitch today, but hoping to do some poking around tonight and tomorrow. If I fave, please follow the submission guidelines at QueryMe.Online/AmandaJain.

Is it just me, or does it look like we're about to be treated to a Rodgers and Hammerstein-style song and dance number? Also, #mswl.

Jeryl Bier @JerylBierIdea: An NFL quarterback is injured mid-season; a British prince, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the QB, yearning to see how the other half lives, switches places w/ him. Hilarity ensues. And the Superbowl.
