Y is for Younger ReadersI'm using the letter "Y" to announce that I'm revamping my vampire series - The Night Roamers - and offering it to younger readers. In all honestly, it was mainly written for ages seventeen and older, because of the language, violence, and steamy romance scenes. I'd even put a disclosure in the book descriptions, warning that all four books were meant for older readers. Now, we're not talking about erotica, just scenes that I wouldn't feel comfortable letting my own daughter read, who is almost thirteen. I just wouldn't.
Well, after receiving several emails from readers (many of them thirteen!) telling me how much they've enjoyed the Night Roamers, I've decided to create a censored version of the series and offer it to tweens and young adults (I will still keep my original as well).
I will be removing anything that couldn't be shown on the Disney Channel, and releasing it within the next couple of months. I will leave in words that many teens do use like "Crap, butthead, heck," to make it believable. But, I think I'll be able to sleep better at night knowing that the series can still be enjoyed by younger readers without the adult content. Anyway, here is the cover for my censored version (also less provocative than my current). Coming soon!
