New Adult

New adult fiction is a new genre that straddles the line between the juvenile and adult genres. New adult books typically feature a romance plot and a female protagonist between the ages of 18 and 26. New adult books appeal to readers of contemporary romance, yet there isn't always a happy resolution of the romance plot. New adult novels tend to be much more sexually explicit than young adult novels with similar themes, and often involve stories about college, sexual revelation, and coming-of-age experiences. It is a genre that is growing in popularity. Read more about its development on the Book Country blog.

Bestselling authors include Jamie McGuire and Colleen Hoover. Book Country member Alex Rosa's new adult romance Tryst was discovered on Book Country and picked up for publication by Penguin Intermix.

If you write new adult fiction, explore this genre to connect with other like-minded writers, workshop, and publish your book.
