As long as you don't mind that it's my book! :)
My last post discusses my frustration with how some publishers/agents are defining--and limiting--YA literature, whether fantasy or mainstream. Here is my creative response to the problem: my YA fantasy novel is free this weekend and Monday at Amazon. But be warned! Several characters are over 19 years old! (a no-no, I've been told); it's not in first person (teenagers of the "me" generation can't relate, I was warned); and it writes to them, not down at them (these kids aren't readers, make it read like a movie, they insisted). The result, for all its flaws, is an attempt to write a funny, interesting YA novel that connects to much classic literature and fairy tales/folklore. Download and read if you get a chance!
