Wendy Grisham, vice president and publisher of Jericho Books, has left the imprint amid a restructuring of the publishing house. The Nashville-based imprint will also be scaling back on future releases.
“All Jericho titles currently under contract will be published over the next two years as planned,” said a statement from the company. Acquisitions and publications of new books beyond that, though, will be reduced.
Jericho, an imprint of Hachette Book Group, was launched in fall 2011, with its first books being released late the following year.
In September, the imprint had its first New York Times best-seller in Nadia Bolz-Weber’s Pastrix: The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint.
The Hachette Nashville umbrella also includes the FaithWords and Center Street imprints.
