Summary
"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 'Writing New Adult Fiction', you'll learn how to capture the spirit of freedom, self-discovery, and romance that defines the new adult experience"--Back cover.
