I guess I'll be the first one to break the ice.

I have parts of two NA fantasy novels on BC. I'm looking for feedback on my newest one called Vengeance Upturned, a dark fantasy NA novel, my wip.

Hi everyone - I have also a section of a new book I'm working on for the NA genre. It's currently titled Part 1. The entire book will be comprised of 3 parts. Unless, I edit and elaborate enough on each part to make them separate books, making it a trilogy. Entirely possible - it's a bit up in the air right now, I could go either way. I'd love some feedback! 
Here is the link:

Thank you,

Thank you!


I'm very excited to continue working on this creative project. I have so many ideas for this book or series. I'm leaning much more towards a series since there is a lot of ground I could cover. I'm hoping to have another 20k written in the week or two. Then go on a major editing/rewriting spree.

Hello and happy holidays (if you celebrate; if not, I still wish you a cheerful week)!


I'm excited to connect with other writers of new adult fiction. I'm looking forward to posting up the first portion of my manuscript, and generally engaging in conversation with other writers about this category.


My WIP is called Bear Skin. A college junior worries about the simple things: losing her virginity, being afraid to run after an ACL tear, pleasing an overambitious mother; until Interpol abducts her boyfriend of two years. It stands almost completed (editing now) at around 91,000 words.


 I've always been torn about what category to submit it to once my final edits have been made, since New Adult is not always recognized. I suppose this isn't the appropriate board to ask (as this one is about sharing our works), but if anyone is interested in helping me determine what it should be classified as when NA isn't an option, my inbox is open.

Hello, please find the time to review the first five chapter of Fishing for Hope.  Thank you.


It can be found under Romance.  It also can be considered typical New Adult.

Hello, all. I just posted a new draft of my book (it says "3rd" draft, but really it is the 2nd...this was due mostly to my technical incompetence) and I want to encourage everyone to review it. I've incorporated major changes because of all of my reviews so far and I'm hoping that more reviews will make it even better.


The characters are NA age, but the book is really more fantasy, YA, and historical (set in 1911 Denmark). It is light on the romance, but heavy on adventure and 20-somethings figuring things out. You can find it here: Størgård


It's also worth checking out if only for the laughably amateur cover that is brought to you by Me & MS Paint

I don't think your Book Cover is bad, JP. It's better than Destiny's Bond's Book Cover, which I made on Microsoft Paint, too


Also, your link doesn't work--I get taken to google searching for your link. I'd fix it.

Haha, good old MS Paint... Always there to take that great idea that you have in your head about how a cover should look and makes it weird and pixelated.


Oh, so the link does lead to...nowhere! And, thanks Amber, for pointing that out. I think I fixed it (it works on my computer, anyway...)

Hi All,


Just joined BC (from Authonomy) and put up my NA (or YA-ish) book, Bad Napkin.  I'm wondering whether I should put it in comedic ficiton, but I really feel the audience is older YA into NA.  Ugh.  Thoughts welcome.
