    Good advice, which as it happens I've already been taking, being a fan of YA. That is the reason why I was/am dubious about trying that market. It's basically sci-fi set about 10 years from now. It's not action-packed though there is some, and I can't figure out how to sell it to an agent. So I published it on Amazon. Here is the cover.

    Margot, very effective social media presence and a good web site: simple, attractive, easy to navigate. You're doing everything right!
