Publisher Comments:

Get schooled in the art of writing fiction for teens

Writing & Selling the YA Novel offers a complete lesson plan for writing and publishing fiction for teens. Structured like a day of high school, award-winning young adult novelist K.L. Going takes her students through every stage of YA writing.

Learn how the YA genre has developed in History class. Toss around ideas during Gym. Create authentic teen characters in English class. Craft convincing plots during Lunch. Add it all up in Math as you learn about agents and contracts. Along the way you'll find plenty of homework exercises to help you hone your skills - as well as input from actual teen readers.

At the end of your school day, you'll have all the knowledge a young adult author needs to write a book that speaks to teen readers - and get it published.

Book News Annotation:

Going, author of Saint Iggy and Fat Kid Rules the World, offers a complete "lesson plan" for writing and publishing fiction for teens. Structured by "periods," like a day of high school, the book covers the history of the genre, idea generation, creating authentic teen characters, and crafting convincing plots, as well as slang and writing about sex and drugs. She also gives advice on editing, query letters, agents, and negotiating a contract. Chapter "homework" gives readers a chance to try out techniques, and quotes from real-life teens from around the world offer insight on what this audience really wants in fiction.
