What I wish YA novels were about

I am the worst blogger in the world. I want to state this as a fact, but I'm really hesitant to declare myself the best at anything (in this case, being the best bad blogger). So, I'll just leave it at this: I am one of the worst bloggers in the world.

Why? I never talk about anything interesting. Not even remotely interesting. So, my plan is this: I'll talk about things that are interesting (BAM. Game-changing idea right there).

The thing that I want to talk about today: What I wish YA novels were about.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE COMPLEX! And the story of how to self-publish a book

A little over a year ago I was toying with the idea of publishing something. Like 92% of my life is spent by me assuming I will die old and alone with a lot of Labradors and a cupboard filled with nothing but Hot Cheetos and Campbell's soup. This was probably one of those times. But, by far the most wonderful person to ever enter my life tricked me into confessing that I like to write (because I literally don't tell anybody) and offered to read The Complex for me.

I was so nervous that I did not sleep.*
