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.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void.
