I think I have kept you drooling long enough this week. Let's look at the launch list from Hot Key Books. As I mentioned the other day, they will be launching in August and they have nine books that will be published before the end of the year.
Hot Key Books mission statement is:
Unlocking the power of reading,
the love of books and the joy of
stories in all formats for ages 9 to19
And from hearing about the books they are publishing, I am positive they will achieve this.
So here are the books to look forward to.
Sarah Mussi was there to tell us about the book and mentioned that the idea came about while waiting in traffic at New Cross. She wanted to have her angel descend from Heaven and arrive in New Cross. Hinting at Romeo and Juliet but with a distinct teen voice.
This book came about from research she had gathered while writing The Double Shadow and looks at conspiracy theories about the moon ten years before the moon landing. There is a fabulous character in it called Standish Treadwell who I can't wait to meet.
An interactive edition will be available for the IPad, which will included lots of interesting activities. One of the activities that really intrigued me was the idea of looking at a page through the eyes of a dyslexic.
I think you will agree, Hot Key Books have some amazing books coming out. They are definitely an imprint to look out for.
