Veronica Rossi, author of the amazing Under the Never Sky series, will be taking on a new challenge in the form of a New Adult book. The term “New Adult” is focused on college-aged characters, whereas the YA is focused on high school-aged characters. So, essentially, we’re heading into more provocative territory, to say the least, being that NA is more romance than anything else.
Lorin Oberweger and Veronica Rossi writing as Noelle August’s BOOMERANG, pitched as THE HANGOVER meets THE INTERNSHIP, set in an online dating service that aims to be Match.com for millennials on the rebound, to Tessa Woodward at William Morrow, in a three book deal, in a pre-empt, for publication in 2014, by Adams Literary on behalf of Wildcard Storymakers (World English).
So, yeah, this is apparently where she’s headed next. That’s not to say that she isn’t going to be writing anymore YA books, because she does plan on it. The NA book is under a pseudonym after all.
Whether you like this or not, the NA genre seems to be picking up rather easily. Working at a bookstore, there are quite a few NA books that get purchased, so the potential for readers is already there, and I think they’re hungry for more.
Lorin Oberweger is an editor as well as an author and this looks to be her first novel to be published.
