Firebrand Launches Book Packager Tinderbox...

Auden Media Corporation, parent company of Firebrand Literary, recently announced the launch of Tinderbox--"a book packager of superior quality, high-concept teen and middle grade fiction."

According to the company's press release:

Tinderbox prides itself on offering more equitable terms to its writers than the traditional book packager, offering competitive splits of the advance, royalties and subrights. "We want to ensure that our writers are as invested financially as they are creatively," says Nadia Cornier, who co-founded Tinderbox with Michael Stearns.

Their website will go live in the fall, offering detailed info for publishers and agents, and the scoop on current and upcoming projects. As far as submissions, Tinderbox is not accepting writing samples from unagented authors, "but welcomes inquiries and samples from agents on behalf of their clients."
