News: The Atomics

A couple of weeks ago when I attended the Atom blogger party they mentioned a fantastic new program they are introducing to encourage the next generation of bloggers.  The scheme is aimed at 12 to 18 year olds and will offer members free advanced copies of some of their new releases.  They have set up a whole section on their website where participants will be able to post reviews and chat about books.  Sounds great doesn't it?  Makes me wish I was under 18 so I could take part!

Here is the full information from the Atom press release:


Atom, the young adult fiction imprint of Little, Brown, is delighted to announce the creation of The Atomics – a brand new young reviewers programme for readers aged twelve to eighteen.

Atom has been busy expanding their list to include a wide-range of young adult titles, including mystery, adventure and humour alongside their more well-known paranormal series. And now they want to share it with everyone else!

Anyone who joins The Atomics will get the chance to receive pre-publication copies of new titles to review. The reviewers for each month will have their reviews posted in a new, dedicated section of the Atom website where they can be seen and commented on by anyone else who is interested in Atom’s books.

Atom is committed to making sure that every Atomic will get the opportunity to review a title they like the sound of, but hope that many more people will join in the conversation!

The intention of The Atomics is to provide a safe, dedicated space for under-eighteens to discuss books and hone their review skills, as well as giving our fans the chance to read books before they’re published!
