HACHETTE BOOK GROUP LAUNCHES JERICHO BOOKS,
NEW IMPRINT FOR NASHVILLE DIVISION
(Nashville, TN) Hachette Book Group is pleased to announce the launch of a new faith-based imprint called Jericho Books. Jericho Books is an imprint of the Nashville Division of Hachette Book Group and will be led by Wendy Grisham, who will serve as Publisher and Vice President.
The mission of Jericho Books is to seek new, innovative authors who reflect a growing change in the church. These non-traditional voices will appeal to the fresh perspectives in today’s culture and provide an avenue for those exploring political and social issues as they relate to faith.
“I’m very excited about this new opportunity and adventure. There is a growing worldwide community that is pushing traditional boundaries. Jericho Books will provide a platform for these authors,” says Wendy Grisham.
“We look forward to launching another imprint under the leadership of someone who has such a stellar reputation in inspirational publishing,” said Rolf Zettersten, Senior Vice President of the Nashville Division. “Many American authors are very familiar with Wendy who acquired their rights from US houses and published them so successfully in the UK.”
Wendy has an extensive background in book publishing. Previously she served as the Rights Manager at Random House, UK from 2001-2004, Publishing Director for EMEA and acting International Publishing Director at Alpha International from 2005-2007, and since 2007 as Director of Publishing for Hodder Faith, a Hachette UK company.
Jericho Books will launch in the summer of 2012. Wendy will report to Rolf Zettersten, Senior Vice President of the Nashville Division, and will be based in the Nashville office. She will continue to collaborate with the Hodder Faith team in the UK to acquire books, as appropriate. Wendy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 615-371-7773.
