As if there weren’t enough genres in the writing field, such as Romance, Erotica, New Age, Young Adult, etc., now along comes NA, New Adult.
So, what the heck is New Adult? Apparently, it is the step between Young Adult, where the protagonist is around thirteen or fourteen years of age and Adult, which speaks for itself.
So basically, the protagonist is around college age, eighteen or so and leaving home and venturing out into the big world. There’s usually some adult language, perhaps more sexual content and so forth. And that is what New Adult is.
