OwnVoices

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 29 Aug 2018

As you know I've been on the hunt for more #ownvoices and #diversebooks in nonfiction & fiction in mystery, suspense, thriller, upmarket & literary, & women's fiction. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 29 Aug 2018

While #ownvoices and #diversebooks have caught on in YA, I'm still struggling to see it in adult and, frankly, that's what I want more of. #MSWL My target genres right now are: literary & upmarket fiction, mystery, suspense, thriller, & women's fiction.

#MSWL call for more historical romance, especially diverse stories from #ownvoices authors! I adore Regencies and Scotsmen, but I'd also love to see some new time periods, new settings, and new voices. Bonus points if your characters make me laugh.

In general, my #MSWL includes mystery, suspense, thriller, women's fiction, upmarket & literary fiction. I want more #ownvoices in all things and more #diversebooks #thursdaythoughts

I'd love to play a part in diversifying travel writing, and am always open to projects from #ownvoices authors writing about travel and the outdoors. #MSWL

My kids are Chinese American. My son, in particular, doesn’t often see himself reflected in the books he reads. I’d love to see more #ownvoices MG books featuring male Asian American characters. #MSWL #askUpstart

I'm now open to submissions! Looking for YA & adult sci-fi, fantasy, and historical fiction, especially #ownvoices/queer/feminist stories and graphic novels for all ages and across genres.

Hey there! Consider this your periodic reminder that I am always open to diverse historical romance projects, and am especially interested in #ownvoices. Send 'em, send 'em! #mswl

Jessica Mileo @JessicaMileo · 27 Jul 2018

Also while I'm thinking of #MSWL - MORE GRAPHIC NOVELS PLEASE, preferably #ownvoices memoirs or stories

Jessica Mileo @JessicaMileo · 27 Jul 2018

And as always--in every category--I'm looking for more diverse voices! I love seeing submission from marginalized writers--and you don't have to writing #ownvoices. I want to help make this industry more inclusive, so please feel welcome. #MSWL

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 20 Jul 2018

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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 19 Jul 2018

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
