Alvina Ling: Literary Novels (cont.)

Many editors want to hit the sweet spot of a combination of both literary and commercial.

Loves literary fiction with a commercial hook.

HOLES by Louis Sachar is a good example.

Other authors who hit that sweet spot:

Sarah Dessen
John Green
Justina Chen Headley
Sara Zarr
Jerry Spinelli
"Voice is very much a part of what is literary. It's the details, sentence structure, word choice of the prose."
