Press Release

Posted by on April 17, 2012

It seems to be the received wisdom that books angled at the younger set are simply not quite the same thing as books aimed at adults: not quite as challenging to write, not quite as challenging to read. And it is my boring yet constant duty to explain that books for younger readers are some of the most challenging and well-written material out there.

-Maureen Johnson, The Guardian, February 27, 2012

Authors who write for young adults are taking creative risks — with narrative structure, voice and social commentary — that you just don’t see as often in the more rarefied world of adult fiction.

-Patricia McCormick, New York Times, March 29, 2012

Absolutely!  Far from being adult literature’s red-headed stepchild, YA is actually its superior, accomplishing feats of intellectation never before witnessed.  No consideration of length, difficulty, or subject matter holds YA back from exploring the infinite reaches, and dregs, of human thought.  Therefore Pritchard Publishing is proud to announce the release of YA editions of the following books, which we anticipate will be huge sellers, just as soon as our art department can prepare cartoon dust jackets:
