New Young Adult Line At Sourcebooks, Inc

Good news for those of you who write YA. Sourcebooks will launch Sourcebooks Fire, a new young adult imprint this spring 2010.

SOURCEBOOKS FIRE will officially launch with seven titles, including a bestselling paranormal romance series from the UK, a novel based on the true life story of teenage sisters who invented the séance in 1848, a romantic mystery set against the backdrop of the civil war, and a YA supernatural thriller set in New York City, among others.

Three years ago they launched their children's imprint, Sourcebooks Jabberwocky. The line has since had three New York Times Bestsellers.

FYI, the following was posted on their Casablanca Submissions (Romance Line) page:
We are actively acquiring single-title and single-title series Romance fiction (90,000 to 120,000 actual digital words) for our Casablanca imprint. We are looking for strong writers who are excited about marketing their books and building their community of readers, and whose books have something fresh to offer in the genre of Romance.
