I have news for you, trendsetters. You’ve fought for NA, and it’s finally starting to pay off. Remember when we talked about Entangled Publishing starting a New Adult line? Well, they want your help!

Just read through this press release, and then comment with your suggestion for the Name-the-Line contest below this post. The winner will win a free download of every book published in their New Adult line for a year! How cool is that? :)

VETERAN YA EDITOR HELMS NEW ADULT LINE FOR ENTANGLED
Entangled Publishing partners with NA Alley to name our new NA line

December 5, 2012- Entangled Publishing announces digital first New Adult line launching Summer 2013 with veteran YA editor Karen Grove at the helm. Karen brings more than 28 years of experience working with Young Adult authors at Harcourt and then Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to her new position as Editorial Director.

The new imprint will focus on the unique perspective indicative of college-aged protagonists straddling the line between youth and adulthood. As a digital first imprint, the New Adult line will be able to deliver the hottest voices in this exciting genre to readers with unprecedented speed while offering authors royalties as high as forty percent of the cover price.

To celebrate the launch of this fabulous new line, Entangled would love readers to help us Name-the-Line. We would like to thank NA Alley for hosting this contest, which will run from December 6th through midnight December 15th. Suggestions for the name should be posted in the comments section under the EP announcement at http://naalleyblog.blogspot.com

The first person (chronologically) to suggest the name we ultimately choose will win a free download of every book published in the New Adult line for a year!

Manuscript submissions are being accepted at newadult-submissions@entangledpublishing.com

For questions regarding the New Adult line, please contact Karen Grove, Editorial Director of the soon to be named (by you!) imprint.

About Entangled Publishing:
At Entangled Publishing, we believe authors who write great books should receive a majority of the profits. We also believe authors interested in the lucrative indie publishing model shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality editing, commercial covers, or the power of a New York-style marketing machine.

That’s where we come in. Founded by industry-savvy authors and backed by a successful media corporation, Entangled Publishing utilizes a bold new business model to bridge the gap between traditional and indie publishing, giving our authors the best of both worlds. We implement the agency model across all departments at Entangled, which means everyone from the copy editor to the marketing director has a financial stake in your book.

In other words, we don’t make money unless you make money! Come join the revolution!

  1. I can't wait for the new line! I've got a couple of ideas for the line title - the posts didn't mention multiple ideas?

    Horizon
    Focus

  2. Looking forward to this line! My title choice would be : Fusion

  3. Great contest! My suggestion: Bold

  4. This is a simple name that makes it obvious what it is - Entangled NA. I think it works quite well with some of the names of other lines such as Entangled Books and Entangles Teen.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Fabulous new line! How about:

    Ensnared
    Flight
    Twisted
    Fresh
    New Beginnings

  6. Very excited about the new line. It's amazing how far New Adult has come in the last year or two.

  7. LOL I have enough trouble coming up with my own titles, never mind one for an imprint.

    Looking forward to see what they come up with.

    I agree with Laura. When I see Entangled Teen, I know what to expect. I don't have to go back to figure out what kind of books they represent.

  8. Though on the other hand, I'm not a big fan of the term 'New Adult'. But that's because it doesn't make chronological sense. First you're a Young Adult, and then you're a New Adult when you hit 18. If you think about it, you should be a new adult and then a young adult and then a middle-aged adult. lol

    1. Lol, Stina, I agree. But I still LOVE NA lit!
