      Hello everyone. Lots of news this week, so let's get going:

      Abigail McAden, formerly with Avon Harper Collins, is moving to Scholastic
      books March 6, where she'll be Editorial Director of their teen paperback
      imprint, Point. She'll be acquiring both hardcover and paperback teen fiction.

      Also in YA news, Llewellyn Worldwide is following up the successful launch
      of its mystery imprint, Midnight Ink (_http://www.midnightinkbooks.com_
      (http://www.midnightinkbooks.com/) ) with a new imprint aimed at the Young Adult
      Market. To be called Flux, the imprint will release seven books in the fall of
      2006, and anticipates 21 titles in 2007. Andrew Karre is the acquiring editor.
      He's looking for "fantasy, horror, literary fiction, a lot of coming-of-age
      fiction. There's no Llewellyn New Age or paranormal angle to this imprint."
      Flux accepts submissions from both agented and unagented authors, both
      complete manuscripts and proposals. Guidelines are available at

      Dorchester is launching a new romance line, line name as yet to be
      determined. Aimed at a young, hip audience, these books will feature 18025 year old
      heroines and will be packaged with Manga-style covers. The stories will feature
      a heroine "stolen from her normal life into an alternate universe--a
      universe that challenges all she thought she knew. The hero will usually be in a
      position of some power or in the know in the new world. (As one
      example, imagine The Matrix, if Neo were female and Trinity was male.)" The
      stories should be told primarily from the heroine's point-of-view, and should
      have a strong narrative voice. 85,000 to 95,000 words in length; contact
      Senior Editor Chris Keeslar for more information.

      The Mount Horeb Mustard Museum is sponsoring a fun contest. Chapter One of
      Murder at the Mustard Museum is complete and appears in the 2005-06 catalog of
      the Mount Horeb Mustard Museum and on the web site.. Contestants will write
      their best Chapter 2 and a summary of how the story turns out for the
      opportunity to win the Grand Prize of $5,000. There's also a separate category for
      high school students with a first prize of $250.The Mustard Museum Curator may
      ask the winner to collaborate in finishing the book for
      publication. Judging will be based on literary merit and the creative use of
      mustard in the story line. One entry per person. No entry fee. Entry
      deadline May 15. To read the first chapter and for entry rules, visit the website.
