Hachette wants to read your Young Adult (YA) manuscript. Yes you. So it's time to pull your manuscript out of wherever it's hiding and get it in shape!

From the press release:

Hachette Australia is proud to publish amazing YA authors from Australia and around the world, including Jessica Shirvington, John Marsden, Rainbow Rowell, Laini Taylor, Ally Carter and James Phelan – and we’d love to add your name to that list. Throughout October [2014], we will be accepting submissions of YA novels in all genres. If we fall in love with your manuscript, you will receive editorial feedback, and you may be offered a contract for publication.

We love stories that keep us hooked, new worlds we can disappear into, and characters that can become our new friends. If that sounds like your manuscript, we can’t wait to read it!

We currently don’t accept picture book, junior fiction, middle-grade fiction or non-fiction submissions – but follow @HCBOz on Twitter for more updates in future.

So, are you the next big thing in YA? For more information and to enter, head to the Hachette Australia website.
