I posted my top 5 reasons for attending a writers conference on Saturday. I mentioned you could learn something. Well, here’s something that blew me away. There’s a new genre. This might be old news to you, but to me, it wasn’t just news, it was good news. The genre is New Adult. Now, I actually have a category for my second novel Stay since the main character is in 21. I’ve been reading a bit about New Adult and it seems to have pleased some people and annoyed others as all change tends to do. I have a lot more to read about it since I have still have to edit, create a cover and plan a marketing strategy. So far, here are a few articles I found interesting.
- What Is New Adult?
- Friday News: Amazon responds to its customers and creates a New Adult category; Big Book to Movie Flops; Diddy in Downton Abbey?

What do you think of the New Adult genre? What can you see as advantages and disadvantages of this genre? Do you consider yourself a New Adult writer?
