I'm a returning AQ member but have a question: why are nearly all the queries YA or fantasy/sci-fi? Is that because this site specializes in those genres or is it because those are the genres everyone is writing?

The site doesn't specialize. But there's been a recent-ish shift that's made those two genres much more popular, which means more people are reading them which means more people are writing them, etc.

Thanks. You were great on my original query two years ago. Would love your input on the new one if you have a chance.

Market shifts. Fantasy and science fiction are having a resurgence in all mediums. With so many movie and tv greenlights in the last decade, the market is favorable to the genres.
