The YA Blockbuster

I don’t think I’m ever going to write a YA blockbuster. Even the books where I think I’ve come up with a high concept (I had one book where an entire city is evacuated due to a Sarin gas attack) don’t see to come across as high enough. Not like “teens who battle to the death on TV” (Hunger Games), or “school for teenage wizards” (Harry Potter).

Read an fascinating article about a panel by industry insiders on YA blockbusters.
