In the beginning, I want write and self publish (or traditionally publish if possible) a original English light novel (OELN). But The more write and the more I study on how to be a professional writer with proper prose, I begin to favor more with narrative driven story telling in standard YA instead of dialogue driven in light novel. But I love the idea of 4-8 page of anime illustration in light novel.
Plus, English YA novel seems to have (from what I've gathered) has a larger audience base compared to English translated light novel or OELN, since light novel has a very niche audience outside of Japan.
Here's the question. Is it a good idea to have YA with anime illustration? Will it turn out weird and turn off huge number of people. I really like more thought and opinion on this. Thank You
