Twitter Tuesday~Conference Notes
Last week I didn't make it onto Twitter much because of being so busy with conferences. So instead of tweets I'm going to give you my notes from a session by Simon Pulse editor Emilia Rhodes that I attended titled Young Adult Paranormal Market.
Paranormal is, "Anything that cannot be explained by the confines of reality."
Paranormal, "It's an umbrella term."
"Despite myself I found myself falling in love with the brooding bad boys whether they have a beating heart or not."
"There's always going to be a place for a story with good heart."
"One of the biggest draws of the parnormal is that it's sexy."
"The universal feeling of being a teen is that you don't fit in."
On location, time, "You can go wherever you want so take advantage of it."
"If I can read twenty five pages of your book and tell you how it's going to end it's probably going to be a rejection."
You can find Emilia on Twitter where she often imparts such wisdom and much more. Just click on her name for a link. Editors are great people to follow there because you can learn a lot about the industry, what's hot, and what's not.
