Indie publisher welcomes new book category
New Adult fiction is the hot new category in books
New Adult novels explore the terrifying and wonderful chasm between adolescence and adulthood.
Mix the high-octane emotions of youth with the freedom of leaving home and you’ve brewed up a potent new book category called “New Adult.”
Filling the gap between Young Adult (YA, for readers ages 12-18) and commercial women’s fiction for readers in their 20s and older.
Indie Publisher – Butterfly Kiss Books support new changes
The fantasy novel, Cloud Riders (Lord of the Planets #1) by author Debbie Behan caused much controversy before publishing. The decision to publish as a YA novel was not taken lightly. A huge re-write was undertaken that chopped out adult writings to accommodate the YA fantasy genre.
From the Author’s writer’s desk
Debbie, author of The Lord of the Planet series writes. I’m happy I finally fit in somewhere as an author. My writing is in between YA and Adult. To categorise the Lord of the Planet series to YA – 20,000 words of heavy breathing scenes and typical language used today had to be written out of the novel.
A reviewer earlier this year sums it up nicely.
CLOUD RIDERS A Book Stuck Between YA and Adult–Neither Fish Nor Fowl January 22 213
With the NEW ADULY category, I hope to now appease these late teens and adult readers by leaving in the more graphic scenes written in earlier writings, yet to be published called SOULCASTERS.
Soulcasters trilogy is due to be released by Butterfly Kiss Books in 2014-2016
