Genres Flowing Together

As I was discussing Waiting For You with someone over the past few days, I was surprised to hear she thought it was a romance.  It was already rejected by a well-known romance agent, so I thought of it as women's fiction. 
That's the least exciting book category in the world! 

Recently I found a new subset to YAs.  Now there are Mature YAs/New Adult.  (You know who you are!)  This didn't exist ten years ago.  I'm glad it does now!  I'm very happy there.  I always was and always wanted to do more serious or mature material but traditional publishing balked for a long while.  Probably not so much anymore but most of us have migrated quite happily to digital, haven't we?

Okay Kelly.  Which do you prefer for a women's fiction/romance/love story/romantic comedy?


Anyone can comment, I just know Kelly will.  Which one of these covers makes you feel like reading the book?
If neither, can you say why that's so? 


  1. I personally like the second cover better. I can't really explain why it just grabs my eye better. I actually bought this book the other day and have it in my library to read here soon! I really enjoy a lot of different YA books. I like a little romance ( without the porn! Lol) but I like it to be funny also. I started reading when my husband was deployed a couple of years ago. I just haven't stopped! I Love all books.

  2. First off, especially on the 4th of July, I want to thank you and your husband for your service to our country.
    If you like the field cover, I'll upload that today. Thank you for your response.
    Please next time you want one of my books, just ask, I will be more than happy to send it.
