I have a new post on Heroes and Heartbreakers, this time about New Adult. Have you heard that term before? I bet you have. One of the reasons I wrote the post was because I've seen a lot of negativity and cynicism directed towards New Adult, and even though most of them are quite valid, I wanted to talk about it in a positive way, because I feel that it has a lot of good things to offer. It’s a very new label that’s been misused in order to exploit it, but there are a lot of great stories being told, and that’s what I was trying to convey in that post.
Also, one thing I really want to make clear is that New Adult isn't YA with hot sex. Yes, there’s sex in the books, in some cases more explicit than in a regular YA, but these are not erotic romances for young adults. Even the books that come with a warning don’t have hot sex in them. And please, let's stop judging a whole set of books based on one crappy example.
I hope you enjoy!
If you are looking for hot sex (that came out wrong, I hope you know what I meant), I have the perfect book for you!
Earlier this year I reviewed an erotic novella called The Waiting Room. It was fantastic, but soon went out of print because of some issues with the publisher. That novella, along with several others by the same author, has been re-issued, and I’m very excited about it. To celebrate and to help spread the love for this wonderful author, I’m going to give away one Kindle copy of The Waiting Room by Remittance Girl. Leave a comment with your email address. Contest open to all, just remember that it’s a Kindle copy.
This is going to be a lightning giveaway. I will announce the winner tomorrow night, so hurry and comment.
