She admits it. YA books are becoming increasingly sophisticated. The teens growing up today are lucky to be ushered into adulthood with the help of so many talented authors and amazing books. Becoming an adult is fraught with confusion and false starts. Is this when I stop being interested in childhood things? When do I learn how to be responsible? When do I stop feeling like a kid in a grownup costume? How do I relate to my parents as an adult? What do adult friendships even look like?
What do I do about marriage, divorce, having babies, not having babies, buying houses, switching careers? As I finished up my dark fantasy novel Tagestraum and set out on the path in search of agents and publishers, I found that my options were limited. Once I filtered it as non-YA and non-romance, my selection was pretty narrow, and no one seemed to be looking for what I was offering.
I joined contests and made friends, but my peers all seemed to be writing different books than I was. At one point, I started thinking of ways I could make Tagestraum into a YA novel just to make it easier to market. The changes required would have dramatically altered the story — not just the plot and characters, but its very heart and themes. That realization was the first thing that made me turn toward self-publishing, which turned out to be the right choice for me.
I can only hope that there are writers out there asking those questions and trying — for themselves and their readers — to find the right answers. You find the stories that you want to tell — that you need to tell — and you tell them the best you can, and let things start to fall into place later. When not writing, T. She also runs a small-scale rat rescue from her apartment and dabbles in a bit of urban homesteading.
Great post! What I have read on blogs, makes it sound more like purse strings on sex get loose. Would really love for you to expound on what you saw as the borders you crossed, leaving YA for NA.

One thing I keep pondering is how Hunger Games and HP managed to cross the same border and still stay pretty much between the lines. Your thoughts? By and large, NA books often seem to be an excuse to write YA-type characters and storylines but with more sex to fit in with the current erotica trends.

- Hardware Evolution: Automatic Design of Electronic Circuits in Reconfigurable Hardware by Artificial Evolution (Distinguished Dissertations).
- See a Problem?.

- Printcoverage Bali bombing - Australia vs. Asia.
- Die Audienz: Kriminalroman (German Edition)?
So far as Hunger Games and HP go, I think two things are at work: First, they both deal with issues far larger than the main character. Excellent post. It does no good to ignore your passion and chase after the next big thing. Thanks for posting this.
Becca's Birthday Wish
And the same principles apply. So thank you for giving us all permission to write the kind of books we wish we could read ourselves :. But no, seriously: If anybody out there was waiting for someone to say it was OK to write what you love regardless of what it is …You have my permission. Books have always helped me through life stages and life events—good and bad.
Somehow knowing that others experience what you do is a comfort and a source of strength.
I agree that there are a lot of adult looking for books that they can connect with. Super post.
I totally agree! I really enjoyed this post, T. I think you hit on a lot of truth here. There always seems to be this assumption that one we shed our teens, we are adults in every sense of the word, and suddenly are linked to an infinite conduit of wisdom. This is not the case, of course. We are not all sure of ourselves. Instead we muddle along and do the best we can, making lots of mistakes, trying to wear our adult clothing while a part of us pines for the simplicity of the past.
