Book News: MIRA to launch new teen imprint in 2011!

Exciting UK book news! I love that more and more UK publishers are expanding their teen titles. It sounds as though MIRA have exciting things in store with their new teen imprint, Mira Ink which will launch in January. Along with a host of titles, expect a dedicated website, a YouTube channel and a Facebook fan page, where you'll  be able to find out everything you need to know about upcoming releases from Mira Ink. 

Now, onto the books! The launch title for this imprint will be the first book in the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent. I've noticed that this series is quite popular amongst US bloggers, so I can't wait to try it out. The series is about high school banshees (I love it already), with the first book My Soul to Take launching on January 1st 2011.  I love the UK cover of this one. Pretty scary!

Mira Ink will also launch Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series in the UK, with The Iron King launching on January 21st.  In addition to these books other planned titles include books by Maria V Snyder, author of the Poison Study books, and paranormal fiction author Gena Showalter. There are a number of other titles in the works, but these haven't been announced yet.  Exciting stuff, don't you think?

  3. I love the cover for Soul Screamers! I have the US version and wish I had that one. It's a great series though. Rachel Vincent is one of my favorite authors.

  7. I've only read the first Soul Screamers book but I really enjoyed it. I'm saving the next two for a book slump. :)

  9. Am also dying to read the Soul Screamers series so this is fantastic news :) Our South African publishers generally work a lot with the UK pubs so I'm sure we'll also be seeing this very soon :)

  10. Glad to hear, I've been waiting for these books in the UK for ages! Read the first ones of both SS and The Iron Fey series, but can't get the second ones, so hopefully this means I will be able to! =]

  12. The line is Harlequin Teen in the US and they've had some really awesome titles so far. No matter what anyone says..Most of the best authors start with Harlequin.

  13. Exciting news for you guys.

    I'm from the US, but I haven't been able to read these series yet (library availability, huge TBR). Coincidentally, last week I ordered both the first Soul Screamers book and the first Iron Fey series book and hope to read them soon. It's nice to see I'll be in good company with a bunch of new first time readers for these series.
