It's Adult day for #dvpit and it's my birthday🎈! So here's my birthday #dvpit wish-list: a lesbian detective series, diverse sci-fi (I ❤️ Becky Chambers), diverse historical and I'd love to find a high-concept with a darker side (think Black Mirror in a novel) #MSWL

Holla at #DVPit authors who are pitching commercial fiction! What I would love to find: a lesbian detective series, diverse fantasy or sci-fi, sweeping historical fiction with diverse characters. #MSWL

After finishing the @netflix reboot of @lostinspacetv, all I want is a good family drama... that just happens to be in space. #MSWL

Send me your accessible sci-fi, please!

In adult, I'm mainly looking for SFF & historical, especially the kind that's both gripping & intimate. I want a really deep dive into a character's (or community's) emotional journey. #mswl

I would love to see some really grounded sci-fi in my query inbox, the kind where you come to care deeply about the characters and their relationships. Basically, I want something that reminds me of watching Battlestar Galactica. #mswl

On my fantasy/scifi #MSWL I often say I like stories to play with time. This doesn't necessarily mean time travel. My FAVORITE movie/short story is Arrival/Story of Your Life by Ted Chiang. The way time is used in that RUINED ME in the best way. Play with big concepts like time.

#MSWL: I would love a scifi YA where--and just hear me out here--someone takes a werewolf and puts it ON the moon, and also puts a vampire on the sun, and somehow this makes sense.

Breakfast Club, but they are at wizard school.

Bring It On, but they are at wizard school.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, but he’s at wizard school.

It’s just that easy to make a new genre of film, fellas.

YES—give me “Bring It On” at wizard (or space) school! #mswl

I want #SFF stories about socioeconomic disparities at academic institutions.

Public school zoning on Mars? Affirmative action at fantasy college? Exploitation of student athletes at interstellar universities? PLEASE.

This song came out the year before I was born, and I'm disappointed none of it has come true yet. But at least I can #mswl it? Send me some of that optimistic, aspirational sci-fi and fantasy please. Don't let Susan down! youtu.be/46FOlF5bZPQ
