Inkpop!

HarperTeen, publisher of the Vampire Diaries, L.A. Candy,  Prom Nights from Hell , and more, has launched a new website for readers of YA books.  It’s called Inkpop! 

Inkpop describes itself as “an online community that connects rising stars in teen lit with talent-spotting readers and publishing professionals.  Our social networking forum spotlights aspiring authors and the readers who provide the positive springboard for feedback.  inkpop members play a critical role in deciding who will land a publishing contract with HarperCollins. Whose work will you help rise to the top? “

In other words, this is the place where you might be able to read what will become the next big thing in teen lit, or at least find something new and good to read.  You can give feedback to a writer so that he or she knows what his or her reader is looking for.

You can browse the selections here.  The top 5 most popular projects are reviewed by an editorial board every month.  Today the top 5 most popular books are about a psychic girl in Maine, a girl who discovers she’s the guardian of  a secret world where mythical creatures exist, a girl who has to deal with an alcoholic father, a doomed sci-fi romance between a Catholic and a satanist, and a rich girl with some pounds she’d like to lose on her body who wonders if her new guy is just in it for the bank account.
