#MSWL Give me Space Western SFF, lawless new frontiers, Serendipity, Firefly-esque, but with African American space cowboys who mean business written by POC authors! Cinematic in scope, make me swoon, make me sit up, take notice, stay up all night reading! bit.ly/3lsXobY

#MSWL 1/ When I reopen to queries, I would really dig a “host” type SFF. Super atmospheric & BEAUTIFUL in which a human meets an alien life form in the woods/wild & begins a friendship. Almost starting off very Bridge to Terabithia—secret, private, magical ...

Would love an adult sci-fi, or spec-fi with strong world-building centered on a Latinx culture, but also want it to have a very strong science fiction plot line. Would love Dune vibes. #MSWL

I’d 🖤 a scifi novel about all the aliens who’ve been quietly monitoring us for years who suddenly show up all at the same time when they start getting satellite images back of our planet after it went “quiet” due to coronavirus #MSWL so I want worried mothering alien overlords!

Would love some SFF where the world building could be pitched as sci-fi meets old west. #MSWL

#mswl I’d really love a tightly plotted adult space opera. Kind of thinking a failing “abandoned” human colony sets out to make their way home. Maybe some crazy time dilation or something has occurred. Maybe very few men on the colony survive & they are trying to save them..cont.

Would love commercial high concept #MG, written in a literary style, that explores some important emotional competency for the characters (death, loss, catastrophe, violence, race, differences/disability, social justice, growing up, etc) contemp, fantasy, sci-fi, etc. #MSWL

After the SpaceX #FalconHeavy launch, I want this: Sort of a Revolutionary War set on Mars, but with non-conservative pilgrims—like super-smart SpaceX pilgrims w/ ideals & awesome tech vs underhanded greedy governments rushing to claim Mars like “they” already own it. #MSWL #SF
