Sometimes I visit the YA section of bookstores to see where my book will fit in.

What struck me as strange was how much of the YA section seems geared toward teenage girls. I blogged about it over at INKROCK, but it got me thinking about what authors, publishing houses, and the industry itself could do to focus on bringing teenage boys to the table.

Or have we just hit some sort of cultural impasse with boys and books? Have video games and the internet won the battle for their attention?

I would love to hear your thoughts for a follow up blog post!
