Independent publisher Soho Press will be launching a young-adult imprint called Soho Teen. Follow this link to access Soho Teen’s digital sampler.

The imprint will debut in January 2013 with a mystery title called What We Saw at Night by Jacquelyn Mitchard. The inaugural list also includes five other titles.

In an interview with blogger Cynthia Leitich Smith, editorial director Daniel Ehrenhaft explained his vision for Soho Teen. Here’s more from the interview: “We’re publishing one book a month, so that each gets the special care and attention it deserves. And while we publish a broad range of YA fiction, every story must have a mystery at its heart. That said, our titles include sci-fi, the paranormal, a dystopian, some contemporary realistic fiction (some humorous), and a star-studded anthology to benefit the literacy non-profit 826nyc. So there’s plenty of diversity!”
