New Teen Imprint: MIRA Ink

This is great news. Announced today via The Bookseller, a new Teen imprint from MIRA which means that those lovely US Harlequin YA books will soon be available in the UK:

Mira Ink will launch in January with four new young adult series. Tim Cooper, digital and marketing director, said: “We are hugely excited about the launch of Mira Ink. We have an outstanding list from some talented authors that we think teens are going to love.”

Cooper said: “In our search for new talent and new voices we have found great talent in the teen arena.”

The launch title will be the first book in the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent. The series is about high school banshees, and the first title, My Soul to Take, will be published as a £6.99 paperback on 1st January.

The second title to launch is The Iron King from a fairy fantasy series, The Iron Fey, by d├ębut author Julie Kagawa. The book will be published on 21st January, also as a £6.99 paperback.

Cooper said: “We have 13 [titles] fully scheduled in the calendar, but we have a number of others working through the editorial process at the moment so it depends on how it goes. We may add more to the schedule.”

Further planned titles include books by Maria V Snyder, author of the Poison Study books, and paranormal fiction author Gena Showalter.
