|NA on display at Books-A-Million!*|
Hey, everyone! Victoria here, and I hope your holidays went smashing and were filled with lots of gifts and delicious goodies. We’ve got a lot of fresh things planned for the year on NA Alley, and we hope to continue being your hotspot for all the wonderful ongoings and new developments of NA!
Since this is a new year, I thought I’d play off my boy EJ’s post a little bit here. He talked about what he wished for the new year in NA. So for today, I thought I'd talk about how much NA has changed in this past year or two.
NA really started taking off in early 2012, and at the time, it was so un-established. No one really knew what it was and most people had no idea what to call it. Now, it’s one of the hottest new categories of fiction on everyone’s lips and not just readers’, but industry peeps as well. There was a time when you couldn’t catch a publisher or an agent say anything positive about NA, now many can’t wait to snatch it up.
Then there are the bookstores. I don’t know about you, but I go to my local Target and BN and it’s a happy sight. The bookstores not only have some of the hottest best sellers in NA, but they are actually grouping them together. They are being separated and given their own space. This to me is a dream that has been made and shows how far NA has come. Now, let me ask you.
How have you seen NA change since it first launched, and how has it changed the publishing world around us? Loved to know your thoughts! Happy New Year!
