If you’re looking at print and the Web as totally different animals, you may want to rethink, and get up to speed on the Web.
Here’s what’s happening with YA fiction. Lisa Holton Announces New Venture, Teams with HarperCollins – 6/18/2008 7:37:00 AM – Publishers Weekly reports:

How would it work?
Pitching your next book in multiple format
In your book proposal, offer reader interactivity via a blog and Web site. You should create both the blog and the site before you start pitching the book.
Not only will it make your proposal stand out, but you’re also showing considerable marketing savvy and commitment to your idea.
Book sales are slumping, and multiple format offers a way to boost them. Learn how to use the Web, and gather a platform for you writing.
