Blog Me MAYbe: The NA Alley Sisters!

Hey, all!  So today for Blog Me MAYbe we get to share something about someone else!  I made the announcement a couple of weeks ago that myself and a few of my writer friends created a group blog known as NA Alley, which strives to promote New Adult fiction (fiction featuring 18 - 25 protagonists generally).  Well today I'm going to feature the ladies behind the NA Sisters!  Here are their pictures and their links to their blogs.  Check them out everyone they're a great group of women and for those of you who haven't checked out the blog check it out today!  We're having a crazy giveaway!

Jaycee DeLorenzo
I’m a wife, mom, writer, Romance Diva, voracious reader, blogger, web designer, and cover artist. I write YA, Upper YA (or New Adult as the term has been coined) and Adult romances whenever I have a free moment.  Why NA?  Because it's a fascinating age where my characters are trying to find that balance between being a teenager and being an adult, experiencing new freedoms, trying new things, struggling to figure out who they are and who they want to be, all while trying to balance the responsibilities that come with being an adult.  Connect:  jc[at]jayceedelorenzo[dot]com |  WebsiteBlog  |  Facebook  | Twitter  |  Goodreads

Carrie Butler

I daydreamed my way through college—until they thrust a marketing degree into my hands, slapped a summa cum laude seal on the corner, and booted me out into a less-than-stellar job market. Instead of panicking at the prospect of unemployment, I used my Midwestern logic to steer into the skid and point my life in the direction I really wanted to go: writing out those daydreams.  Connect:  soyoureawriter[at]gmail[dot]com |  WebsiteBlog  |  Twitter

Summer Lane

I am a novelist, blogger and freelance writer. I love cats, American history and of course, reading. I adore reviewing books and discovering new authors. I am happiest when I am at home in the farming valley of California, writing about impossible adventures, hanging with felines, eating apples and listening to music. In that order. I write in many genres, but NA is one of my favorites because it focuses on an entirely different aspect of a character’s life. The jump from teenager to adult is really a fun period to focus on. Happy reading!  Connect:  writingbelle18[at]gmail[dot]com  |  Blog  |  Twitter

Juliana Haygert

I’m a Brazilian girl who lives in Connecticut.I would love to be Wonder Woman, Cheetara, Elektra, Buffy, Phoebe, She- ra, Rose, a blood elf shadow priest, and other various kick-ass female from comics, TV series, movies, books and games, but I settle for—the less exciting but equally gratifying life as—a wife, mother, friend and a writer. My heroines are like the ones cited above and I also writes about the heroes who drive them crazy—and occasionally hot. Since my first stories, I wrote about 20-something year old protagonists without knowing it wouldn’t fit in today’s traditional publishing market. Nowadays, besides writing full time, I battle for the recognition of New Adult as a category.  Connect:  juliana.haygert[at]gmail[dot]com  |  WebsiteBlog  |  Goodreads  |  Twitter

L.G. Kelso

I'm a writer who loves to write (obviously), read, ride horses and dirt-bike.  Connect:  porschechic28[at]gmail[dot]com |  Blog  |  Twitter

Bailey Kelsey
There are things you can definitely assume: I'm a writer, I'm a reader, and I'm a blogger. There are some things you'd probably figure out: I'm also a grad student, a soccer player, and a ballet dancer. Then there are the interesting tidbits: I write ghost stories, I'm terrified of butterflies, and I love Southwestern heat. While I've always been a writer, in the last year writing has become about serious craft and story-telling. I've been working on a novel with a twenty-something narrator, and only recently discovered that she and I had our own place in the world of fiction with new adult. It's nice to know neither her story nor my writing are floating along in the abyss, which is definitely how being new to adulthood can feel.  Connect:  baileyiswriting[at]gmail[dot]com |  Blog  |  Twitter

Wow, you have an awesome blog, Victoria. Puts my pathetic little blog to shame! I'm glad you were able to go to another writing conference. So fun, huh! Did you pitch to an agent? How did it go? Hopefully you and I will both have a published book someday we can do book reviews of on each other's blogs. Here's to hoping! :)

This is wonderful! As well as the group! I know I felt lost when I felt like I was falling between YA and Adult's like where do you go?!?
