A sigh of relief

Over at Sci Fi Weekly, writer John C. Wright, in an interview from January, says, of his Chronicles of Chaos:
Nor is this book anywhere nearly gross enough to qualify for YA status. To win awards in YA fiction, one needs to describe rapist elfs sodomizing boys with thorn bushes, or a father having sex with the ghost of his little son he murdered. Incestohomopedonecrophilia, we might call that: One needs special names to describe the new perversions. I wish I were making those examples up.
*eyes novel*

Oh good, I'm still writing YA, then.
