Smugglerific Launch Party (& Giveaway): Introducing Soho Teen!

Founded in 1996 out of NY, Soho Press is an independent publisher of literary fiction and international crime which is now preparing to launch its new YA Imprint, Soho Teen in March 2013. We’ve had the pleasure of meeting with the folks of Soho at BEA this past May and have been excited about this new imprint ever since. As such we are delighted to be working on them on this e-event by hosting the exclusive reveal of their Imprint Trailer (with a giveaway opportunity) as a show of support.

Without further ado: Soho Teen.

About Soho Teen:

Soho Teen publishes a select list of YA mysteries and thrillers by international bestsellers, award winners, and debut novelists. Born of the conviction that compelling YA of any genre involves thrill and mystery, Soho Teen’s titles include the paranormal and dystopian, the humorous, the realistic, the tragic and upliftingโ€“whatever serves a great story best. Soho Teen’s small list is unique in that every title has a highโ€“stakes, pageโ€“turning puzzle at its heart.

You can check out the books that Soho Teen has scheduled for January-June on the imprint’s official website HERE, including these first three titles that look and sound pretty awesome:

    I just checked out Soho Teen’s website, and Escape Theory sounds really good. I love a good YA mystery novel and Margaux’s book sounds just like that. Oh, and I just spotted The Sweet Dead Life! I’m a big Joy Preble fan, so I’m really looking forward to reading that as well.

    I really am interested in Escape Theory. Just the title alone makes my mind go. Who’s escaping and why do they want to escape. Something has to be pretty bad.

    The one by Mitchard (What We Saw at Night) just because I am fascinated by Parkour running. It is beautiful and amazing to watch and I am a major klutz so it seems almost magical to me.
