The Trouble with Doing Market Research All Day

Okay, there's lots of troubles with it, but the one that strikes me today is, that you get to the point, reading the high concept of dozens of recent YA sales, that you feel that a sociopathic best friend/villain willing to subvert democracy in order to push her own social agenda just isn't edgy enough to make it in today's market...


  1. I think we all have! I was looking for a place to send one book and found a place to send another; so that counts as progress. Plus, I reread "another" to give it one more surface polish and it's better than I remember. So that makes a good day.
