OwnVoices

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 20 Jul 2018

I still want #ownvoices set outside the US of all types, but I'm (at least for now) especially interested in fish out of water #ownvoices which allows the reader to see it through the eyes of an outsider who has been let inside. #MSWL

Two of my top books for 2018 so far are #ownvoices set in countries outside the US (Singapore & Cuba). These are the types of books I want more of #MSWL

It's not lost on me that some of my top books of the year are #ownvoices Inspiring me to write up an #MSWL calling for more #ownvoices in my Query inbox: QueryMe.Online/Jessica_Faust

Craving a Heathers-esque dark comedy with psychologically complex characters by an #ownvoices creator. #MSWL #YA

I’d also love to see an #OwnVoices Latinx contemporary romance set in the barrio. Even better if it’s #LGBTQIA as well. #MSWL

Looking for adult romantic comedies, especially #ownvoices ones. Any Native Americans writing them, please send them my way! #mswl

I'd love to see India #HF. Caste systems. Occupation. Everyday life MG and YA dealt with (and maybe STILL deal with!). Also, #HF Australia, too, (though I'm looking for something lighter there rather than, say, the movie Australia). I'd love aboriginal #ownvoices #HF. #MSWL

Agents, I'm expanding the types of books I'm acquiring! If you have any #ownvoices LGBTQ+ mainstream fiction or memoir books, please send them my way! #MSWL

Beth Campbell @Campbele_E · 25 Jun 2018

I was telling my roommate that I hope to get an influx of #ownvoices & #LGBTQ+ queries in my inbox after coming out on twitter the other day.

She looked at me with a shit-eating grin and said: "I think you mean QUEERies"
I told her to go stand in the Pun Shame Corner.

Beth celebrated Boston #pride a couple weeks ago with this badass sign. AND here is your reminder that many agents on #TeamBookEnds are actively seeking #LGBTQ & #ownvoices representation across the genres! #query #mswl instagram.com/p/BkXxBHwh7FD/

#MSWL Someone please give me a creepy Coraline-esque MG featuring POC characters, preferably #ownvoices

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 7 Jun 2018

I would love more thrillers and suspense, #ownvoices and otherwise, & I'm always looking for mysteries #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 25 May 2018

Give me settings outside of the United States too. #ownvoices set in India, Ireland, Indonesia... other countries too, but I was suddenly captivated by "I" #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 25 May 2018

Everything I listed above in #ownvoices. I'm okay if it's not #ownvoices, but I would like more #diversebooks & #ownvoices across the board. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 25 May 2018

I'm always looking for domestic suspense, especially something #ownvoices & family-related (not just husband and wife) #MSWL
