What Does Edgy Mean in YA?


This series was inspired by a comment from my agent. He’d been shopping around my novel, Song of the Lost Clan with positive feedback, but no sale. The time had come for a conversation on how to make it a better fit into either a Mid-Grade (MG) market or possibly a Young Adult (YA) market. The comment that inspired this series was that in order for my novel to appeal to a YA market, it needed to be “edgier.”


The Gathering – A Song From the Lost Clan


Another song sung by the elephants in my MG novel, Song of the Lost Clan. I compiled this one into a graphic that you can check out here.

The Gathering
(chanted in a perfect fourth)
March ahead, march ahead, ….

Step by step.
Mile by mile.
We make our way along trails in style.
