Trend Spotlight: Young Adult Book Sales to Rise

As the economy declines, every area of our lives is affected. Book sales have been dropping which makes the task of submitting a manuscript to be published all the more daunting. Many authors have turned to self-publishing or print-on-demand services like Lulu Publishing. (Check out Ken Arnold Books for a local example of this and some great reads!) Of course this requires a bit of marketing and business know-how that working with a publishing house would handle. There’s good news for young adult writers, though.

Despite the fall of book sales overall, young adult books will continue to sell and even grow this year. So polish your writing and schedule a free initial consultation with our newest editor, Andrea Deeken, who specializes in children’s books, or with our senior editor, Ali McCart, who specializes in young adult fiction and nonfiction.

Hot books right now:

Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer

Inheritance series by Christopher Paolini

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Fahrenheit 451
by Ray Bradbury
