Approximately 70% of young adult readers are over the age of 18. For many of us, our love for the genre all began with a wizard named Harry and his magical friends Ron and Hermoine. But WHY are we all still reading books about teenagers as adults?
If you are a teen writer (like me!), the answer is probably heck ya!
It’s true, J.K. Rowling has absolutely taken over and led the way for YA readers with Harry Potter. Of course, I’m a total Potter Head. But as a writer, your goal should not be to become the “next J.K. Rowling.” That’s how you turn into a copycat.
