Little late to #MSWL today, but I'd love for some agents to send some illustrated, quirky, pop culture adult nonfiction or some lighthearted, contemporary MG & YA with some strong nerd culture flavor! (I've been itching for some cosplay/comic con/food competition stories.)
Now for some nonfiction #mswl: cookbooks, food narrative/memoir, parenting, social issues, micro histories that bring an underrated event/person/movement to light.
In narrative nonfiction: Books about food, material culture, art, literature, and history always top the list, and I'm particularly interested in projects that explore how many of these topics intersect with race, gender, and politics. #mswl
Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPixBut when agent screws up, authors sometimes have trust issues.I get it, totally. Please don't hesitate to query me & talk opwnly if you were recently impacted by 1 of these events where an agent didn't do their job according to industry standards.I would love to see your work. 2/
#MSWL Adult and YA fantasy, sci fi, romance. Picture books featuring diversity, food, or fun word play. Middle grade based on unique mythologies, and always, diversity across all spectrums including LGBTQ, authors/characters of color, and neurodiversity. Queryme.online/naomidavis
#amquerying writers, I only have 3 queries left! Send more! I'm currently looking for adult mystery, romance (esp historical & diverse historical), women's fiction, and upmarket projects, as well as nonfiction on the topics of food, material culture, & social history. #mswl

When I couldn’t sleep last night, I spent 45 minutes thinking about this and reading comments. So who wants to send me their NF take on intersection of food, class, and culture? #MSWL
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.
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.
Why, oh why, don’t I have more culinary books? Women’s fiction, romance, mystery, nonfiction, whatever. Send them to me to tide me over as I wait for more Top Chef. #MSWL
