So, I decided to title my Blog, "All Things YA and NA," but what is YA and NA?
YA or Young Adult is a category of writing that exploded overnight with that popular little vampire book. Hmm, what was it's name?
You got it! Twilight by Stephenie Meyers
Main Character Age Range: 15-18
Audience Age Range: 12-100
My list of YA favorites grows every day. I can't wait to add book tips to the blog, because I have loads of them. Trust me. If you're looking for a book, I'll find you one you LOVE.
Now, on to NA.
NA or New Adult grew out of necessity. Hordes of readers embraced Harry Potter during their Middle Grades, devoured Twilight, Hunger Games, and the like as a teen, and as college students or the recently graduated, they wanted something a little more steamy with a lot more alcohol, and so, NA was born.
Main Characters Age 18-25
Audience Age Range *18-100
*I say 18, but of course, many high school students sneak into the New Adult section on Amazon and click BUY. The category is so new, there aren't many well-known titles that jump out at you at the checkout line. Not yet, anyway. But some titles you might want to browse through: Losing It by Cora Carmack and Easy by Tammara Webber
Of course, you will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my NA Dark Thriller. I just have to finish it:)
So, that's All Things YA and NA in a nutshell. Any questions or recommendations? Just ask!
Yours in writing,
