I recently received a sampler from Egmont focusing on some of the titles which will be included within the launch of their new dedicated young adult imprint, Electric Monkey.
The imprint will launch with three books for teenagers, including BZRK, a new series from Michael Grant, author of the Gone series, which will have a significant digital element including video games and an interactive website. Also on the launch list are Oliver Twisted by J D Sharpe and Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein.
Egmont Press publisher Stella Paskins said the company will publish ten YA titles onto the list in its first six months with one or two titles each month thereafter. Backlisted titles will be added to the imprint as they are reprinted.
This is really exciting news! I can't wait to get my hands on these releases and will be looking forward to seeing what else Electric Monkey will be publishing in the future.
