I’ve been hearing whispers that editors are not buying up YA paranormal anymore. The market is saturated at the moment, certainly, but teens I know who actually read the stuff, myself included, have never complained of having too many options to read. It’s always the people who have a bone to pick with YA in general who say there’s too much. Naturally, I’m concerned about editors being tired of paranormal when the audience is not. I love YA paranormal and fantasy and paranormal romance. Well, the good stuff anyway.
I suppose there isn’t much writers can do about it. I’m going to keep writing my paranormal stuff because… screw the market. I write for myself first. Besides, my main project is a dystopian fantasy and dystopians are supposedly selling right now, so maybe that one has a chance. If my paranormal projects don’t, well, I’m going to write them anyway. Because I can.
