Looking for Guest Bloggers for 2013 New Year #NewAdult Book Blast

Reading by the window in winter
Do you write New Adult books? If so, I’d love to hear from you!

A little over a week ago I ended my “Fall Into Winter Darkness” Book Blast. As with my “Spring Into Summer Romance” Book Blast, I had a lot of fun hosting fellow writers and getting to know more about them and their work. I want to give a final shout out to all of the authors who participated in my fall guest blog series. They are listed below in the order in which they posted or were interviewed.

For the next book blast I’d love to host authors who write “New Adult” books. Many of you have probably heard the term New Adult by now, but for those of you that haven’t, New Adult is an up and coming genre that’s getting increasing attention. Definitions vary (which is part of the reason it’s such an exciting topic), but basically NA fiction features protagonists who are slightly older than the typical YA character (18-24) and who grapple with the momentous life decisions that often occur early in one’s adult life (career choices, partner choices, finding one’s adult identity, path in life, etc.) I wrote a blog post about it, which posted here at Brinda Berry’s site, during my blog tour for Dark Light of Day. I enjoyed talking with other writers who write in this emerging genre and I thought it would be fun to host a New Adult themed book blast, which would start shortly after the New Year. So… if you write New Adult fiction and are interested in participating in my 2013 New Year / New Adult Book Blast, please contact me!

Thanks to the 2012 Fall Into Winter Darkness Book Blast Participants!

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! 😀

  1. Hey! Thought I would leave my mark here. I do write YA but with a special twist. (I add poetry within my stories – helping the reading to dive deeper into oneself). For me personally, it’s all about what’s really within.
    (Let the reader find and feel the real story). My stories are a collection of the adventures that happened to a young boy that just wants to be heard. “Let’s Find You” is all about……

    At the edge of understanding
    Is where it all begins
    When I reach the end of reason
    is where it all sinks in.


        1. Hi Katie– I resent, but I think hotmail is having trouble. I’ve rec’d several e-mail msg’s saying my e-mails to authors with hotmail accounts weren’t getting through. If you don’t receive it by tomorrow, let me know. Tx!

    1. Hi Mairin, I think that’s one of the neat things about discussing this up and coming genre — how to define it so that the definition is helpful to readers and allows them to find other similar books they may like. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hi Aneta– Please send your e-mail address, book blurb, and website address (if you have one in addition to the Blogger blog) to: archer at jillarcher dot com. Thanks!
