B&H Publishing Group is planning a relaunch of a major gift book brand and adding a new devotional line to its already successful gift book program.
Before joining B&H last year, Dawn Woods, publisher, Christian Living and Gift Books, had more than 10 years prior experience working in gift books for Thomas Nelson. Along with building on the publishers’ current success, Woods is also moving the gift book line into the future.
“When I arrived at B&H Publishing, I decided to focus my attention to their current success and add additional content to their gift line,” Woods said. “With the success that we have had in the past, we only see a bright future in the days to come.”
In the spring, B&H will relaunch the “Bible Promises” line with Bible Promises for Dad and Bible Promises for Teacher, and has six more titles in the line on the schedule to release in 2014.
Fall will see the release of seven gift books, three of which will be added to its successful “Day by Day” devotional brand (Stand Firm, Journey and Experiencing God At Home). Included in the seven are a Christmas title (YuleTide Blessings) and a brand-new series titled “Life Wisdom” (Life Wisdom From Billy Graham and Life Wisdom From Coach John Wooden).
With authors such as Beth Moore (Believing God Day by Day, Praying God's Word Day by Day and Breaking Free Day by Day), Henry Blackaby (Experiencing God Day by Day) and Stephen and Alex Kendrick (Love Dare Day by Day), B&H has sold more than 1.5 million units of its “Day by Day” titles. In total, B&H Publishing Group has sold nearly 2 Million gift books in the last five years.
In 2014, the company also plans to launch an additional, new devotional line.
