What it says above.
The first is an interview with Amanda Rutter, soon-to-be editor with our new YA imprint, Strange Chemistry. You can find the full interview over at YAtopia.
I would like to see more science fiction oriented submissions. I think we’ve seen a healthy mix of fantasy, horror, dystopia and romance within YA, but where are all the robots and spaceships? If I could introduce more teens, via YA science fiction novels, to fantastic adult authors such as Peter F Hamilton and Alastair Reynolds, I would be more than happy.
The second is with Angry Robot editor, Lee Harris, at 12 Books in 12 Months.
“How important is social media and engagement to you?”
Very. It’s a fantastic way for us – and for our authors – to engage with the readers. In the olden days, say 5BF (Before Facebook), there was a lot of distance between the reader and the writer, and even more between the reader and the publisher. the walls have fallen, my friend, and we’re all better off for it.
