Fall for New Adult Campaign
Fall for the new New Adult: is a campaign to spread the word that New Adult is expanding into new and exciting categories like Historical, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Gothic, and more! Follow along to find out why best-selling NA authors & NA bloggers are excited to see New Adult expand outside of contemporary. And as an incentive to give the new NA a try, the Fall for New Adult bundle set will be available for a limited time. Set includes 4 great non-contemporary NA novels for only $3.99!
My Journey: When I first wrote SLEEPER, New Adult wasn’t the emerging category that it is today. This left me, and my manuscript in limbo. An agent asked me to make the MC, Mishca in high school so it was clearly YA (as college/university stories didn’t sell back then). But that would mean removing the plot point that sparked the whole novel in the first place: Mishca falling in love at first sight with her university professor. Workable with a university age MC, not with a high school aged MC.
So imagine my excitement when the New Adult Category started coming into it’s own. Books like LOSING IT, SLAMMED and EASY captured the hearts of the NA hipsters, but now it’s Genre’s turn to shine. Historical, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Speculative Fiction and mash-ups in between are coming to the fore thanks to stories like Elsker and Apollo Academy.
SLEEPER will follow in a few weeks time, coming to an eReader near you on December 2, 2013.
Can’t wait until then to try out genre NA? Then you can purchase the Fall for New Adult bundle set here!
