Orion Children's Books is launching a new Young Adult imprint, Indigo. It will publish four titles a month, beginning in September this year. Fiona Kennedy will be publisher of the imprint, working with commissioning editors Amber Caravéo, also of Orion Children's Books, and Gillian Redfearn of Gollancz.
Kennedy said: "Indigo will publish teen fiction with style and poise, as the clutch of starry authors on the list shows. It will give our teen titles an identity and status as a whole, and each book more profile individually.
"A number of our authors have been writing older novels and Indigo will give them the support and freedom to develop their work for this readership, as well as giving us the perfect opportunity to extend the range of titles we publish. As always, our list will be one of hand-picked titles that we feel passionately about."
