A couple years ago EVERYONE was writing YA - and some of it was pretty close to erotica. (Well, 50 Shades was Twilight fan fiction - which was YA - so it’s easy to get confused.)
That’s when I gave up using the genre label Romance and YA for my stuff. I don’t write the hot stuff - so I started working on my Mom’s short stories and I’m still waiting for the market to cool off.
I don’t think I’m the only person who is scratching her head, either. lol
