Headline launches new ‘serious’ non-fiction label

In Britain, Headline Publishing Group is launching Headline Press, a new ‘serious’ non-fiction publication, reports the Bookseller.

Headline said the new publishing house, led by publisher Martin Redfern, will focus on “thought-provoking books that challenge and inspire” with an emphasis on politics, current affairs, history, personal development, popular science and memoir.

The first titles are among the imprints Power to the people, a manifesto for global activism by former Oxfam CEO Danny Sriskandarajah; Murder in the Gulag, an account of the death of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, by former journalist John Sweeney; And The Red Emperor, a biography of Xi Jinping by Michael Sheridan.

Redfern said: ‘Headline’s guiding spirit is to publish books that people want to read, and combining these commercial instincts with the new brand’s broad and deep editorial expertise in serious non-fiction will position our authors for good luck. We are proactive in commissioning and acquisition, and have ambitious growth plans for the list.”
