Harlequin Targets Teens

In 2007, Harlequin launched Kimani Tru, a line of books targeting African-American Teens.  Now in 2009, Harlequin is set to broaden its presence in the young adult market with Harlequin Teen. The fiction line, debuts in August with Rachel Vincent’s My Soul to Take, the first installment of the Soul Screamers series. Another paranormal tale, Intertwined by Gena Showalter, is rolling off press in September. The imprint will initially consist of trade paperbacks, hardcovers and digital publications, and it will encompass a spectrum of genres including fantasy, contemporary, historical, science fiction and—no surprise—romance.



Natashya Wilson, Harlequin Teen senior editor, is responsible for the line’s acquisitions. She says most of the books she has signed up have been acquired through agents, but she also considers proposals submitted directly by authors.
