Harlequin Starts Imprint for Young Adult Fiction

Tez Miller's blog reports Harlequin is starting a new imprint for teens and looking for manuscripts. They accept unagented submissions, so looks like a wide open new market.

Romance category sales are up 83%, and fantasy books are doing well, so they're a frigging publishing spotlight in an otherwise inky economic cave.

Many thanks for the linkage, and I'm glad I could be of some assistance.

Harlequin's also running a special programme for teens in the US and CA. I imagine this is so the publisher gets an idea of what teens really want straight from the horses' mouth. Harlequin Teen Panel, I believe it's called. Teens may sign up, but with parental/guardian permission.

Have a lovely day! :-)

Thanks! My fifteen-year-old daughter is an avid reader and might be interested.

And thanks for the info about Harlequin.
