Insecure Writers Support Group is hosted by Alex Cavanaugh and once per month on the first Wednesday we meet and reveal our insecurities to fellow bloggers for release and support. This month I'm doing fine, I do have a stubborn cold but it doesn't make me unable to go about my day. Just a random annoying cough and some fatigue. Also I won three amazon gift cards and bought a huge stack of e-books including those by some of my blogging friends (: I even reviewed one yesterday if anyone knows a certain Rachel Schieffelbein author of Secondary Characters. Read review here. But I do want to share something I'm considering.
I think the claim that teens won't read books featuring adults as the main characters is hogwash. The author of Paranormalcy had to make her main character younger to fit in the YA mold for publishers. But what if you didn't? My proposal is AYA (Adults for Young Adults), a genre with adults in the main role but written for a teen audience. Seriously look at the cartoons some of us watched growing up. Justice League, Batman: The Animated series starred adults but as kids we didn't care. We just loved watching them use their powers and skills to beat the bad guys. My idea just really formed on Monday but I've been thinking of this for over a year. Two novel ideas I have floating in my head star adult characters but always felt like YA stories. So my idea might just be in my head right now but wasn't New Adult just a concept before it exploded on the scene like it has now? And I think it might be great for teens having books with older characters written for them without looking for adult fiction to fill a non-teen staring book fix. So what do you think? Let me know and remember my novella Sacrifice Her will have a cover reveal in September and there is still time to sign up. Have an excellent day.
