HarperCollins Christian Publishing (HCCP) and its HarperCollins Focus affiliate have announced the launch of a new nonfiction imprint, Harper Horizon. Andrea Fleck-Nisbet, formerly director of content acquisitions at Ingram Content Group, has been tapped to lead the new imprint as v-p and publisher.
Based in HCCP’s corporate offices in Nashville, Tenn., Harper Horizon will focus on topics such as patriotism, family-values, hard work, wisdom, inspiration and more through memoirs, biographies, autobiographies, self-help, and motivational advice books, HCCP said in a press release. Inaugural Harper Horizon titles are slated for publication in spring 2020, and the imprint plans to release 15 to 20 new titles each year.
Fleck-Nisbet, whose background also includes 15 years with Workman in executive level director and management roles, will be responsible for all acquisitions as well as building the editorial, marketing, and distribution teams to support Harper Horizon titles. In a statement about her new role, Fleck-Nisbet said she is “eager to put books into the hands of readers that will inspire, entertain and encourage them to fully realize their potential.”
Mark Schoenwald, president and CEO of HCCP and HarperCollins Focus, added: “We see opportunity in the general market to provide content that helps our readers better understand the world around them.”
HarperCollins was formed in 2018 in Nasvhille and also houses the HarperCollins Leadership, AMACOM, and Blink young adult books imprints.
