People often ask me what the New Adult romance genre label means. The genre is less than ten years old and isn't even recognized by everyone in the publishing industry. Most readers of this genre know the distinction though. In its simplest term, new-adult means the main characters in the book fall between 18 and 25 years of age. Characters are mature enough to deal with adult topics, such as work, college, money, relationships, and yes—sex. They explore life, making mistakes and tough decisions about adult issues. As in the real world, some have baggage well beyond their years, while others are just beginning their journeys. I hope you enjoy this new genre as much as I enjoy writing it.
