And as a reminder to anyone who sees this. There is the #MSWL page, which is more general about my interests, and then there are #MSWL tweets. I am only looking for stories that fall under the tweets (and I ask that you share the specific tweet in your query).

There are so many ways to go with this. I'd curious to see a story where this tech is commonly used. Rarely (& clandestinely) used. What we as a society & tech-wise do to combat it. What someone would do if their entire likeness &words were stolen/manipulated this way. #MSWL

As always, my tastes run character-driven with cool plot elements and a fast pace...so the ideal story for me would follow one (or a couple) POVs in this world with an overarching plot that can either be directly related or somehow just tangentially affected by this tech. #MSWL

claribel a. ortega pre-order my book, GHOST SQUAD! @Claribel_Ortega

As cool as this is (and as useful as it would be for authors with characters on their covers/character art!) all I can think of is the abuse and propaganda that will come from it 😞 twitter.com/UniverCurious/…

I've heard of tech like this that could easily be used by anyone representing living people AND voice replications. It's the tech with implications I think I'm most concerned about. That said, I think that fear makes it ripe for SFF mining so...this is a must-see #MSWL for me.

I need this dynamic in a novel pretty please. Bonus points if they are chefs who fall in love (these two are not, but hey, fiction!) youtube.com/watch?v=fzDwiw… #MSWL

I really do love #TheBoldType. If you can comp your book to it (especially the female friendships, diverse experiences, and chasing your dreams), please send it my way. #MSWL

Jennifer Azantian @jenazantian · 13 Feb 2019

Very specific #MSWL. Brad & Claire are not a couple, but I would love to see a story about chefs who work in a kitchen and bicker/help/push/adore each other like this and fall for each other. Watch this fun series and you'll get what I mean! youtu.be/lD2OOTx2G9k?li…

We’ve seen this before in SFF, but I want MORE…Gattaca blew my tiny mind when I first saw it in school. I'd love to feel that way again.

I love stories where small changes lead to huge society-wide consequences, for gene-editing, there are stories to tell about every level (early on in development & first implementation, during the growing pains/adoption stage, later on once it's been more widely accepted). #MSWL

Within the immigrant experience, there's so much I'd like to see reflected in all subgenres. (1/2) #MSWL

The desire to both assimilate & hold tightly to your culture, the very real fear, food-is-love, the closeness of family. Of course, there isn't only one way this plays out, & I want to read them all! #MG #YA #MSWL (2/2)

@jenazantian This may be a dumb Q, however I have something that fits your wish list site, but do not specifically see it referenced in your tweets. Would you prefer I not query at this time?

Replying to @afranzer

Good question! My wishlist is quite long and broad so I'm not open to all that's on it when I'm closed to submissions. I'm only open to #MSWL tweets, which are generally more specific. Thanks for asking!

High concept stories across age groups that can be compared to Black Mirror that *also* deep-dive into character. Think the episode San Junipero. #MSWL
