And article in The Independent highlighted Coben’s turn to the younger crowd. As a writer of “adult” books, mostly suspense novels,
Coben has written 19 books, 47 million copies of which are in print worldwide.And now he’s starting a new YA series, which will feature some of the characters in his adult series.
If I were a YA author, I might be a bit stressed at these best-selling authors turn to “my” territory. But as someone studying the publishing world and stats, it seems like a good idea. If you can connect with teens and young readers, you probably can hold onto them as they become adult readers. Plus, you open up a whole new world of readers.
What is your take on this?
