Publish date:

From Sylvia Day’s Bared to You to Jamie McGuire’s Beautiful Disaster, new adult fiction has arrived—and it’s hotter than ever. But there’s more to this category than its 18- to 26-year-old characters: The success of your story depends on authentically depicting the transition of your young protagonists from teenhood into adulthood.

With Deborah Halverson's Writing New Adult Fiction, you’ll learn how to capture the spirit of freedom, self-discovery, and romance that defines the new adult experience. To celebrate the book's release, Deborah has organized a blog tour that runs through the end of the month—complete with book giveaways and prizes! If you're curious about writing a novel for the new adult category, you'll want to join in on the fun and learn more about crafting a story that's fresh, unique, and wholly new adult!

Here's what authors and reviewers are saying:

“This book is more than a marketing guide, more than a writing manual, more than a compilation of stories about successful authors. For the writer who wants to become a new adult author, or the new adult author who seeks to enrich her craftsmanship and stand out from the herd, this book has an abundance of information.”Tammara Webber, New York Times best-selling author of Easy and Breakable

With her conversational, engaging style, Halverson demystifies the process of plotting, writing, and marketing a NA novel.... If you’re serious about writing a NA novel you can be proud of, one that is also marketable, you’ll add this indispensable title to your permanent reference shelf.” —Blogcritics

Deborah is offering a FREE FULL MANUSCRIPT EDIT to one lucky blog tour participant. The more stops you make on the tour, the more chances to win!
