In The News: Shades of Indigo
Come September this year the world will painted in shades of Indigo. The world of Young Adult and Teen publishing that is. Last Friday the Orion Publishing Group announced the launch of their new teen imprint Indigo.
Here’s what Fiona Kennedy, the publisher for Indigo had to say:
INDIGO will publish teen fiction with style and poise, as the clutch of starry authors on the list shows. It will give our teen titles an identity and status as a whole, and each book more profile individually. A number of our authors have been writing older novels and INDIGO will give them the support and freedom to develop their work for this readership, as well as giving us the perfect opportunity to extend the range of titles we publish. As always, our list will be one of hand-picked titles that we feel passionate about.
Publishing four titles every month, the imprint will combine authors currently on the Gollancz and Orion Children’s Books shelves. The first Indigo authors are: Mia James, Cinda Williams Chima, Harlan Coben, Kate Harrison, Holly Black, Marcus Sedgwick, Sara Grant, Sally Gardner, Chris Wooding, Anna Kendall, Cliff McNish, Sarah Silverwood, Alan Gibbons, James Dawson, Chloe Neill and Annabel Pitcher.
That’s quite a line up, isn’t it? If the titles Indigo have lined up for the first eight months, as announced in the press release, are anything to go by, I can’t wait to see what else they come up with. Roll on, September!
