So what is the difference between YA and NA?
YA is age 13-18 characters.
NA is age 18-25 characters.
Here is wikipedia's definition on NA:
New Adult (NA) fiction is a developing genre of fiction with protagonists in the 18-25 age bracket. The term was first coined by St. Martin's Press in 2009 when they held a special call for “…fiction similar to YA that can be published and marketed as adult—a sort of an ‘older YA’ or ‘new adult’.” New Adult fiction tends to focus on issues such as leaving home, developing sexuality, and negotiating education and career choices.. The genre has gained popularity rapidly over the last few years, particularly through books by self-published bestselling authors like Jamie McGuire, Colleen Hoover, and Cora Carmack.
SO... I'm writing this post as a way to share with all my readers--if you haven't noticed already--that I'm making a switch to NA.
Who all is with me?
