Thank you so much for this informative article!As a writer of contemporary fiction featuring twenty-somethings, I've had a daunting task getting positive feedback from agents. Many have told me they enjoyed the premise but didn't see it doing well in today's market. The biggest criticism I received was that my story had too limited an audience since my characters were too old for YA and not old enough for adult. Hopefully this sentiment will change in the near future.As always, your blog is an extremely helpful tool for this process. Thank you for sharing this great must-read!
She was on YALitChat tonight on Twitter (yup, I said the T word) answering questions about the subgenre and contest etc. Great info on there. If you were a tweeter...;)
