Audience


16
Surrogated target audience predominately includes men and women age 14-35 internationally. Although, other peoples may find themselves attracted to the content in the book. Readers want this book because 16
Surrogated allows them to not only get lost in a future world but to fall in love with the characters and their dilemmas because they can relate to the situations they end up in. They root for the characters, cry for them and experience the emotions they do. Not only that but readers will find themselves  coming back for issues that have been relevant across time.

Author


Although, 16
Surrogated is different than my previous work. It has issues most people can relate to from testing friendship to reproductive rights. The some issues Eddi faces are issues I have dealt with in my own life in a variety of situations.

Promotion


Grimes is currently active on Twitter, Goodreads and Google+, making social media the main platform for 16
Surrogated. Grimes also participates in a number of offline communities as well, extending the marketing platform.

Competition


Similar works include Bumped by Megan McCafferty and The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood.  The differing aspect you will find in 16
Surrogated is that teen girls in this society are forced to surrogate for the government and the infants are kept by the government.
