I came across a new YA publisher, Backlit Fiction, www.backlitfiction.com. The URL goes to a Facebook page, but apparently the editor's from Bloomsbury and the books (e-books only now) look both interesting and gorgeous. Anybody know anything?

Some heavy-hitters involved and a first-look deal with Happy Madison. It looks like a new, very commercial development model.
"The speed of ebook production allows Backlit to test fresh commercial ideas with core audiences," said Backlit Publisher, Panio Gianopoulos. "Working closely with some of Hollywood's best creative minds, Backlit is committed to telling stories that will be loved as books, television and movies."
