My friend, Heidi, the woman who edited the second edition of Blood-Soaked and Contagious, tweeted me yesterday. Her 13 year-old niece is reading it, and apparently loves it.
I never intended it to be a YA novel… but it seems as though my writing entertains young people, too. I do wonder what will happen when she gets to the sexually-charged material in the last quarter of the novel. Wait, there’s sex-related stuff all over in that book. Shit.
Please, God, I don’t want to be a form of sex education for America’s Troubled Youth!
