Press Release: Miscellaneous Announcements
Bloomsbury Launches Bloomsbury Spark Global Ebook Imprint

Posted at 7:15PM Sunday 06 Oct 2013

Bloomsbury is thrilled to announce the global launch of Bloomsbury Spark, an exciting new line of eBook-first publications focusing on fresh young adult and new adult talent across all genres. Beginning with a simultaneous global release of seven titles in December 2013, Bloomsbury will continue the program with two new titles publishing digitally each month.

Bloomsbury Spark is actively acquiring novels from debut, self-published, and established writers from across the globe to join the remarkable group of authors whose books will be published with the imprint this winter and spring. Anyone 18 and older is eligible to submit manuscripts and the response to date makes it clear that many writers are excited by this new venture. Bloomsbury has also seen potential for these titles in foreign-language markets and expects the imprint to be a major point of interest at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Bloomsbury Spark will launch with seven titles in December 2013 which will be supported with an active marketing campaign that includes social media features, online advertising, and additional digital assets.
