Debbie Macomber to Publish Six Novels at Random House

Starting in 2012, Debbie Macomber (pictured) will publish six novels under Random House’s Ballantine Bantam Dell imprint.

Ballantine Bantam Dell publisher Libby McGuire and editor-in-chief Jennifer Hershey acquired hardcover, paperback, audio, and e-book publication rights. Theresa Park from the Park Literary Group handled the negotiations. Hershey and senior editor Shauna Summers will share the editing work load on the six novels.

Macomber has authored more than 150 novels. She suffers from dyslexia and only carries a high school education. Her determination to be a writer eventually lead to a deal with Silhouette Books which has since spawned a career selling 130 million books worldwide.

Macomber commented: “I am delighted and grateful to find a home with the energetic, inspired, and extremely impressive team at Ballantine Bantam Dell. I’m looking forward to a new stage in my 28-year publishing career, full of fresh ideas and exciting opportunities to bring my stories to the widest possible audience, and to deepen my long-term relationships with my loyal readers.”
