Agents, I would love a proposal for G-rated Christmas romance set in Santa Fe or Taos. Latinx main characters a bonus. #ownvoices #hallmark #CountdowntoChristmas #WritingCommunity #MSWL

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.

Do Black writers know that everything we create doesn’t have to be about our trauma? I don’t wanna see another get out the hood, police brutality, abusive relationship, segregation, or slavery story. We deal with that shit every day. TF I WANNA WATCH THAT IN MY FREE TIME FOR

This is why I keep asking for the stories that feature POC and more specifically black teens and adults in happy situations like falling in love, figuring out who they are, having great friendships because the world is already hard enough for us as it is. #MSWL

You know what else I want to see in YA submissions? Teens having safe consensual sex & enjoying it. Not only is that how it can be in a real teen's life but I think books should be modeling that behavior. And also, teens talking & advocating for that in their relationships. #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Oct 29

I like seeing a teen choose to go to work instead of to college in a YA & having it be the right choice for them. Everyone deserves to see themselves in a book & not going to college is the reality for many kids. It can totally be a happily ever after. #MSWL
