Have you seen the new SLJ Teen newsletter?
Yeah, I’m mentioned, which is pretty cool.
But what really caught my eye was the short article about Harlequin’s new YA line. I’ve been very curious about it (and still am!) since I first read that they were launching it, but I haven’t seen any info about it recently. SLJ says it’s launching in April; last year, it sounded like they planned on launching this October.
Harlequin Teen is a single-title program dedicated to building authors and publishing unique, memorable young-adult fiction. Stories with the unforgettable romance, characters and atmosphere of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga, the witty humor of Meg Cabot’s Princess Diaries novels, the edgy emotion of Jay Asher’s Th1rteen R3asons Why, the thrilling danger of Suzanne Collins’s Hunger Games, the futuristic world-building of Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies, and the power of Marcus Zusak’s The Book Thief are examples of the range and depth of projects that we’re seeking.
