I currently have an erotica series out, but I'm planning on delving into the YA genre in March.  For mailing lists (I use MailChimp), should I keep my erotica list separate from my YA list or just put them together and hope no one clicks on an inappropriate published book?

Mixing erotica and YA? Yeah, I'd go separate on that one.

If my kids signed up for a mailing list thinking it was YA fiction, and they started getting emails about erotica, you might hear from me.

Definitely separate, especially since the cover model for your erotica looks quite young. It could...get awkward ;)

My mailing list allows people to sign up for either all new releases or 1 specific genre. About 60% go with "all" and the others break it down. Since I write a lot of different stuff, I wanted to make sure my mailing list is as good as I can make it. Mind you, mine is quite small, but still....

Did you use MailChimp to set it up with the different selections or another service?

I write both adult romance and YA. I use mailchimp and actually have two separate emails/accounts. That way if readers reply to the newsletter email, the emails goes to the correct email for the genre. :)

Okay, next question:

I've been fiddling around with my website (and snooping through a lot of people's sites) trying to figure out how to separate the two different lists I have for erotica and everything else. Should I create two different Mailchimp list forms and have them both on the site for people to choose which one they want?

I'd have a seperate author website for your YA, with its own form. That should remove the possibility of young readers accidentally (or not so accidentally) filling out the wrong form. Also, as Patrice mentioned, if you're using mailchimp your info will be at the bottom of all your emails. So I'd use a different account/reply email for the YA list to avoid confusion.
