Teens was formed in order to produce page-turning books for teen and YA
readers, available at a cut-price discount: our business model is based
on pioneer relatives or friends buying a set of books to share as
presents with others - although of course all our titles are available
to order individually in bookshops or from online retailers.
first novel in the Pioneer Teens series was Spiral of Prospero by Nigel
Argall, a former youth worker, who wanted to write books for the age
group he worked with.
of Prospero has received overwhelmingly positive feedback, and we are
now on the lookout for new work by previously unpublished novelists:
our criteria are very strict, however, as submissions must be
original and innovative, and we operate a strict editorial system to
ensure that our published books are fast-paced for teen and YA readers:
buyers can therefore be confident in our books when they give them
to others as presents.
One of the best books I’ve ever read, lots of good twists: female reader, age 14
Teens follows on from the success of our Pioneer Readers imprint which
was established to publish creative fiction for readers who are looking
for work by new and exciting authors. You might therefore choose to mix
titles by Pioneer Readers and Pioneer Teens within your discounted
package of books, and at the same time you will be helping us increase
the opportunities available to other new authors.
