Sourcebooks Fire Promo!

In 2010, Sourcebooks Fire will be releasing its first season of YA titles and we wanted to invite everyone to be part of the process.

If you visit our new website (, you’ll also be able to preview the first few chapters of ALL of our books. Additionally, you can start groups, post comments, upload videos and interact not only with other YA readers, but with Sourcebooks authors who will also have a presence on the site!

If you log on right now, you can:

  • Help Sourcebooks pick the new cover for Bran Hambric: The Specter Key. Sketches by Brandon Dorman (who designedSavvy and Fablehaven) are up and awaiting votes! If you let us know what you think, you could win one of 100 Bran Hambric half-moon charm necklaces, 1 of 50 signed Bran Hambric posters, or 1 of 3 signed hardcover books!
  • Join the Sourcebooks Fire Teen Review board! Would you like to review all of our publications before we print them--and let us know what you think!? If you are a teen that loves YA, you can help us with our new line!
  • Think you have what it takes to be the next big thing in YA? Sourcebooks Fire wants to read YOUR ideas, so we have teamed up with Georgia from #YALitChat and are hosting open submissions for all of February.
  • Check out vlogger James Holder’s video on new years resolutions for Team Jacob, let us know your resolutions, and win one of three advanced copies of Eden Maguire’s US debut Beautiful Dead (March 2010).
  • If you’re in the New York area, come party with us on March 18th to celebrate the birth of Sourcebooks Fire! In attendence will be Sourcebooks Fire authors and friends, with a guest performance by Tiger Beat--the first ever YA authors rock band starring Libba Bray, (our own) Dan Ehrenhaft, Barney Miller, and Natalie Standiford.

As you can tell, we have a lot going on this season! And there’s even more on the horizon for Fall 2010! You can find out all about it at

Doesn't it sound awesome?!

Very interactive. Too bad I'm an old codger. ;)

B, you are not! If you're an codger, I'm pretty close to being ancient myself. ;)

LOL, I just feel old when I hear the call for all these teens. *sigh* I was a teen once....I think...maybe
