Books for Adult Women

Chick lit can be a fun, wonderful thing. But not all female readers are in their early 20s and obsessing over issues of dating and weight loss.

Hyperion has created a new publishing line for mature women called Voice. And no, they're not using "mature" as a euphemism for "over 65". Rather, they're looking to publish books that appeal to women who are in the middle or late stages of their life. Women with concerns that go beyond the initial falling in love and launching a career.

Launched by Hyperion publisher Ellen Archer and the former Viking executive Pamela Dorman (an editor on such projects as Sue Monk Kidd's The Secret Life of Bees and Kim Edwards' The Memory Keeper's Daughter), their first five books are due out this month and all are intended to appeal to women over 30. They're books that are about such things as balancing career and family and modern feminism.

Some of the first books will include:
  • The Feminine Mistake by Leslie Bennetts
  • Life's a Beach by Claire Cook
  • The Empty Nest, edited by Karen Stabiner
