It seems to me - though I could easily be wrong about this - that Young Adult writing is more seriously categorised in the U.S. than it is in the U.K., leading me to consider submitting my recently finished Young Adult fantasy novel in the U.S. Is this a worthwhile endeavour? Is the U.S. more serious about Young Adult? If so, why? Are there any special rules and protocols for overseas submissions? Should I look for agents rather than directly approaching publishers? Would a U.K. agent look for publishers in the U.S.? A lifetime's interest coming together in three years of intense work: there are some scary decisions to be made. Anyone got any advice for me?
