HarperSanFrancisco (religious imprint of HarperCollins) recently announced a name change to HarperOne. The change was primarily to avoid the impression that they published regional titles only. HarperOne publishes a wide range of religious titles, including Christian books by authors such as Richard Foster, Eugene Peterson, and Billy Graham. However, they publish across a wide spectrum of religious books and prefer Christian books of interest to Christians across all Christian denominations--not just evangelical.
HarperOne is also working with Avon Books to provide editorial and marketing support for Avon Inspire, a line of inspirational romances in trade paperback. The new fiction line will include 8-10 titles per year, with 2 or 3 titles--at least one historical and one contemporary romance--releasing each season. Future releases could include suspense romance, chick-lit romance, and other subgenres, including children's novels. Agented submissions only.
