The publishing times, they are a changin'.

I received a press release today from Hachette Book Group.

"Hachette Book Group is pleased to announce the launch of a new faith-based imprint called Jericho Books, an imprint of the Nashville Division of Hachette Book Group. The mission of Jericho Books is to seek new, innovative authors who reflect a growing change in the church. These non-traditional voices will appeal to the fresh perspectives in today’s culture and provide an avenue for those exploring political and social issues as they relate to faith."

This is interesting, and welcome, in the light of the current dialogue concerning Christian fiction.  I wait with anticipation to see what Hachette Group considers "fresh perspective's" in today's faith culture.  Can we expect a call out for fresh, unpublished authors?   

I know we'll all stayed tuned.
