I started reading The Secret Year today (awesome by the way--- or at least the first 130 pages are) and I had a terrifying realization.
I've written a YA book (two of them, in fact) where the main characters are NOT supernatural creatures and NO ONE DIES in the books.
Death toll= 0
Can my books even BE YA?
Maybe I should kill off a character just for the hell of it, after all, I want to be published and there's a certain mold I need to fit...
No I'm totally kidding.
