Black Sheep YA Imprint Featured in Publishers Weekly

Claire Kirch at Publishers Weekly has written an article that features Akashic’s new Black Sheep YA imprint. From the article:

“Emphasizing that Black Sheep titles will respect the conventions in YA literature—there not be excessive sex, profanity, or violence—and that they will appeal to ‘reluctant readers’ as well as to readers looking for books that are ‘unconventional’ and ‘unorthodox,’ [publisher Johnny] Temple said that the imprint will launch in February 2014 with two books that exemplify its mission, both by authors who have previously published with Akashic.


Changers Book One: Drew, a YA novel by T Cooper and Allison Glock, is the first in a planned four-book series about a protagonist who assumes a different identity in each book; Game World by C.J. Farley, a middle-grade novel, will include fantasy elements and illustrations.”
