Young Adult and New Adult are huge trends right now. Not only that, but I think inclusiveness and diversity in fiction is going to be HUGE, especially in the romance genre. With the way the RWA is blowing up right now, the focus on diversity (LGTBQ, POC, Body positivity and others) are going to be a touchstone for publishers to show they are sensitive enough to handle a growing demand for representation as the industry association handles their own racism scandal.
I am a straight, white female that writes contemporary romance, currently. I try my best to show sensitivity towards marginalized groups, I don’t always get it right, but with the industry focusing more on these aspects, it helps us to get it right.
