What genre do agents want most?
According to QueryTracker the answer is YA with Fantasy coming in second.
Many agents rep only YA. The queries flood the market with the force of Niagara.
Speaking of The Force, YA contests and writer’s blogs are like a swarm of Death Star fighters, crowding and jostling to get to the head of the line.
What is a writer of adult to do when another genre grabs all the attention?
Should they follow the market as some agents suggest and change their adult manuscript to YA? Or stay true and soldier on with their overlooked novel?
