Publisher Information

Text Publishing


For over twelve years Text Publishing has been celebrated for the quality of its fiction and non-fiction publishing for adults. Many of our books�I'm Not Scared, Romulus My Father, The Shadow of the Wind�have also proved popular with younger readers. So now we have decided to expand our horizons to Young Adult readers. After all, children and teenagers are the most important readers of all--with them lies the future of literature and of the world. We want to publish YA books with the same values and ambitions, the same passion and attention to detail, that we have nurtured in our adult fiction and non-fiction. We want books that will thrill young readers, keep them up late reading, change their lives.

Specifically interested in books with these subjects or themes: young adult (fiction, folktales)
