ABC News will feature Colleen Hoover and other “new adult” writers, but many fans of the genre are upset that the network called the genre “smut fiction” in a headline, despite the fact Hoover’s books do not include racy content. We’ve collected some Twitter complaints below…
Here’s an excerpt from the ABC News story: ”And ‘New adult’ authors like Colleen Hoover are getting the rock star treatment. At a recent book-signing at A Real Bookstore in Fairview, Texas, fans drove hundreds of miles for a chance to meet her. A year ago, Hoover was a social worker, raising her three sons with her husband in a single-wide trailer.”
In April, Hoover will be a keynote speaker in our online course to help independent authors finish their books. If you want more background about the origins of the genre, read our What Is New Adult Fiction? story.
