So this post from Tumblr pretty much defines the category of New Adult Literature so far. We all know the covers and tropes that have been working for writers and readers. Bad boys, tattoos, abs + almost kisses on the cover.

There has to be more. I know there is. Every week on #NAlitchat we talk to great authors who are writing the next big trend in #NA because they want to read it themselves.

There was a ton of chatter, and some really great tweets. People are interested in Historic Fiction from every time period, including recent ones.

They’d like to see geekier male love interests instead of the typical alpha male.

There are tons of ideas and more in the transcripts here, but in the wise words of one chatter, make sure you vote with your wallet. When something new and different comes out, support it with your wallet and more great things will come along.
