Harmony Books, an imprint at Random House's Crown Publishing Group, is being refocused. The imprint, which has focused on mind-body-spirit titles, will now publish titles in the additional categories of health, diet, relationships and self-improvement. With the expanded editorial focus, Heather Jackson has been hired as consulting editor-at-large, and Leah Miller has been named editor. The imprint is also getting a new logo.
In a memo about the new direction for Harmony, Tina Constable, senior v-p and publisher of Crown Archetype, said the imprint will aim to publish titles that "guide readers to become their best selves, both inside and out." Crown Archetype, which Random House considers Harmony's "sister imprint," will now focus exclusively on books in the following categories: celebrity, pop culture, entertainment, humor, and sports.
Jackson, who was most recently a freelance editor, worked in editorial department at Crown from 2005 until 2009. Miller arrives at Harmony from Simon & Schuster, where she was an editor at the recently downsized Free Press.
