The Doubleday division of Penguin Random House will expand its nonfiction list to include wellness and self-help titles, Bill Thomas, executive v-p and editor-in-chief of Doubleday, announced on Thursday. The move will be spearheaded by Todd Doughty, senior v-p and deputy publisher, and Kristine Puopolo, v-p and editorial director for nonfiction.
The new list intends to "inform, inspire, and entertain readers across a wide variety of subjects, including: psychology/science, health, parenting, how-to, memoir, personal finance/success, and personal growth. We intend to create an inclusive list featuring new authors/voices with a broad range of perspectives and experiences to meet the needs of our diverse reading audience," wrote Thomas in a press release.
Editors across Doubleday will be invited to acquire for the list, with the first books slated to be released in 2023. Audiobook versions will be published by Penguin Random House Audio, and subsequent paperbacks will be published by Vintage/Anchor.
