New Adult is a rapidly growing category. At this point, it is saturated with Contemporary Romance, but it is expanding. NA Alley recently posted about all the non-contemporary NA coming out this winter, and included genre lists with titles.
Among our own Aussie Owned crew we have non-contemporary New Adult writers. Sharon’s recently released, Sleeper, is a New Adult Sci-fi Fantasy.
My own books are New Adult, too. They are some of the few Historical Romances around in New Adult. Another great Historical New Adult book is Speak Easy by Melanie Harlow. This moves a long way from Contemporary college romances with it’s bootlegging and roaring 20’s theme. It has rave reviews.
New Adult is rapidly expanding and exploring new genres. Being an age group category, its potential is infinite. Click on the NA Alley link above for new releases, and find their catalog here.
Not all New Adult is college students exploring their sluttier side. There are great NA reads out there that are adventurous, suspenseful, insightful and unexpected. Look around, and chances are you’ll find something you will love.
