Harlequin and 'Seventeen' to Debut New Fiction Imprint
Two major players in the world of young adult publishing have teamed up to launch a book imprint: Seventeen Fiction from Harlequin Teen, which will debut September 27 with Something in Between, a novel by another familiar name in YA: Melissa de la Cruz.
The new publishing venture involves a true hands-on collaboration between the partners. Harlequin Teen and Seventeen staffers consider submissions together to acquire projects. “Both teams then contribute notes and work with the authors to deliver the strongest possible editorial,” Wilson explained. “Harlequin is providing the book publishing and production expertise, and Seventeen will include excerpts of the novels in the magazine and highlight them on their many wonderful platforms to reach the widest possible readership.”
