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.

For this particular #mswl, I’m not looking for intergalactic empires, rogues, mercenaries, smugglers etc. I really want to feel the vastness of space, that feeling of being alone. I want the story and the setting to mimic that feeling of isolation as well as Passengers did!

#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).

#MSWL This is highly fascinating and I’d love a novel that takes this premise and runs with it. #future #speculativeworld #SFF technologyreview.com/s/610456/a-sta…

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

Check out my #MSWL. Always looking for MG, YA, romance, scifi, Christian fic, fantasy & southern women's fiction: mswishlist.com/profile/litera….

#MSWL. U know "Summer at Sea?" I want futuristic "Summer in Space." Spaceship goes adrift? YA (more serious) or MG (funny w/missing adults)
