Alloy Entertainment, the company responsible for the Gossip Girl and Vampire Diaries series for young adults, is searching for new ideas and talent. To that end, they’ve formed The Collaborative, which will focus on acquiring books from authors.. The Collaborative is not a publisher, per se, but a development company that will work with the author to shape a project and decide the next step — which may be submitting to a traditional publisher or e-publishing. Alloy is owned by Warner Brothers Entertainment. ” As part of Warner Bros., Alloy has the ability to exploit each property in film, television, and new media for the benefit of its authors. ” The Collaborative is interested in young adult, middle grade and chapter books, and women’s fiction. They hope to acquire twelve complete or partial manuscripts a year. Find out more about The Collaborative and Alloy Entertainment here.
