Hachette Book Group will launch a new faith imprint in summer 2012 called Jericho Books. The imprint will be based in the company’s Nashville division.
Wendy Grisham has been named vice president and publisher. Since 2007, she has served as director of publicity for Hachette UK’s faith imprint, Hodder Faith.
Here’s more from the press release: “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.”
