Rachel Van Dyken: Why We NEED New Adult Books

Rachel Van Dyken: Why We NEED New Adult Books | New adult literature | Scoop.it

This is a response to a post HuffPost Book ran last week about the problems with the New Adult genre:

There are rules and labels for everything because that's the type of society we live in. Our success is defined by our lack of chaos. This is also true in the book industry.

Publishers love creating new genres in order to try to sell more books and the newest addition to the genre pool is "new adult" fiction. That's the label that has been created for books in which the main characters transform from teenagers into adults and try to navigate the difficulties of post-adolescent life

Young-Adult Authors Are Creating a Steamy New Genre

Young-Adult Authors Are Creating a Steamy New Genre | New adult literature | Scoop.it
“New adult” is emerging as a popular fiction genre as young-adult authors spice up their stories with some sex.

 

Publishers and authors say they are seeing a spurt in sales of books that fit into the young-adult genre in their length and emotional intensity, but feature slightly older characters and significantly more sex, explicitly detailed.

 

They’ve labeled this category “new adult” — which some winkingly describe as Harry Potter meets “50 Shades of Grey” — and say it is aimed at 18-to-25-year-olds, the age group right above young adult.
