YA site to showcase original editorial content
New York, New York, February 8, 2016—Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing is excited to introduce Riveted, (http://rivetedlit.com) an online destination for fans of Young Adult literature. A robust online community where visitors can read full-length books, Riveted will embody its tagline: “YA Fiction is our Addiction.”
From the creators of Pulseit—one of the first and fastest growing sites for fans of YA books—Riveted takes the next step in reaching the teen reading community. The editors and contributors at Riveted will focus on young adult fiction from all publishers as well as movies, TV, online media and all emerging areas of YA culture with original, thought-provoking editorial content. With contributions from such YA media stars as Jenny Han, Morgan Matson, Siobhan Vivian, Suzanne Young and Scott Westerfeld, the site will provide a daily dose of fun lists, articles, quizzes, videos, giveaways, exclusive content reveals and behind-the-scenes visits with an array of writers. The site will also welcome readers to submit original material and don a contributor profile.
At launch, Riveted opens the gates with a binge read of New York Times bestselling series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. Leading up to the March release of the next installment of the Shadowhunters Chronicles, Lady Midnight, members from the editorial board will host live video chats every Friday to discuss the week’s #TMIBingeRead. In addition, the site will feature original content such as DIY videos on how to get the perfect book character-inspired hair, “word of the week” videos, and exclusive serialized bonus stories.
Jon Anderson, President and Publisher, Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, said, “Readers of YA are passionate, and Riveted will be an ideal community for them to discover new books and authors, engage with others, as well as contribute . We know YA reading takes place in the context of a broader culture and Riveted will be an engaging meeting space linking those interests.”
