Macmillan's new imprint, Flatiron Books, has announced plans to publish a young adult list under the direction of senior editor Sarah Dotts Barley.Founded as a nonfiction imprint in 2013, Flatiron will expand into the world of young adult fiction. Inaugural titles include Meredith Russo’s If I Was Your Girl and Alison Umminger’s American Girls — both YA debuts.
Our goal is to publish the most exciting authors on a list that is highly curated, so that each book gets a lot of individual attention. It’s incredibly exciting to watch Sarah start this YA line, and to see that the buzz for her first few acquisitions just keeps building. (Publishers Weekly)
