This is a big day! Today marks the day that this blog is shifting from just creating great reviews to creating a FULL MAGAZINE of great reviews! So here is the skinny, "Clean Fiction" is going to be your one stop shop for NEW ADULT content. What is New Adult?
New adult (NA) fiction, also rendered as new-adult fiction, is a developing genre of fiction with protagonists in the 18–30 age bracket. St. Martin's Press first coined the term in 2009, when they held a special call for "fiction similar to Young adult fiction (YA) that can be published and marketed as adult—a sort of an 'older YA' or 'new adult'".
This magazine/ezine is not geared toward teenagers, but to mature adults who would prefer less "mature content". I am going with the tag line: WONDERFUL READS FOR THE QUIRKY & DISCERNING BOOK LOVER. There will be physical copies available at a minimal price as well as ebook copies available for FREE. Yes, let's say that again, "FREE!" At this point we are looking at between 75-100 8.5"x11" pages of content, but it could be larger!
The bulk of the content will be BOOK REVIEWS, but I am also preparing listings of Publishing Houses, Editors, Author Services, Cover Designers, Character Artists, and more. This is more than just a magazine for readers, it is a magazine for BIBLIOPHILES! If you love creating and reading books, this is the magazine for you!
Why should you keep reading this blog if an awesome magazine is in your future? Community Activities of COURSE!
