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 wendy.grisham@hbgusa.com or 615-371-7773.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
