I meant to publish this post on writing new adult books earlier, but the content is still valid.
The new adult books genre seems to just get hotter. Here are some thoughts on the genre and some publishers who are into it.
I’m still in the process of writing my first novel, American Gold, and I’m undecided if it will end up as “historical” or “women’s fiction.” My female protagonist is 21 and struggling with major life decisions in the year 1911.
I never seriously considered writing a new adult novel, but after reading more about the genre, I’m beginning to wonder if my book might also fit there. What do you think? Can a novel set in 1911 be a fit for this market?
