NA vs Adult
I thought about it for a few years and then finally did it. I wrote a New Adult story and it was so enjoyable I turned it into a series!
The main difference between writing an adult story and New Adult (for me) was the level of tension and heated scenes. In an adult story I can’t just let it the sexual tension keep building with the characters or the readers would get bored and or upset with me , but with the New Adult I was able to play around with it longer than I ever would in any other genre. I won’t say I kept it ‘clean’ because I didn’t, the young adults / new adults in this generation are way past hand holding so I tried to keep it real … at least in that aspect of the book. The demons and alternate reality are another whole matter entirely.
I hope the story is enjoyed by all ages and can’t wait to put on my “J.Risk” hat and write the second one.
Thanks for having me here today! J

About the Author:
I wanted to write a story that would fit into young adult, new adult and adult levels. Something that was serious with fun paranormal and afntasy elements that everyone could read and enjoy.
I've even decided to use J. Risk as the pen name for this to separate this series from my other writing which is definitely adult reading material.
