I was considering self-publishing a YA novel I accidentally wrote (long story...!). I have a good readership base in adult novels and a decent web presence, so I thought I might as well give it a shot. I was originally planning just to do an e-book, but then several people suggested that YA readers are much lighter on using e-books than other genres, and so I might hit a wall pretty quickly.

Another hurdle was suggested to me be a sage (literally, Sage ) that e-books do better when readers connect with each other and make recommendations, which YA readers might not do as much as in romance/erotica, for example.

So, I'm wondering if anyone has self-pubbed an e-book, and if so whether your experience matches these concerns. Thanks!!
