There seems to be a lot of buzz surrounding YA these days. A couple of my favorite blogger/authors write kids books and teen books. It's a market that has been in the back of my mind for some time. My Avalon books are very nearly YA books. I am always happy to get an e-mail from a teen who tells me they read one of my books for a book report.
That said, Harlequin Silhouette is opening a new teen line-with school quality hardcover books and some trade paperback. The editor said she had a solid line up for the first year or two but was short in the historical line. So- I'm reworking my western and sending in a partial to see if my voice and this story idea are along the lines of what she is looking for. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
