Uhrichsville, OH—Barbour Publishing is pleased to announce the strategic development of a dedicated in-house fiction team. With fiction continuing to be one of the company’s strongest categories, the goal of the team is to take the Barbour fiction line to the next level by providing targeted direction and leadership in the area of acquisitions, as well as partnering with talented writers and helping them to further develop their craft.
The newly established team consists of Publisher and Vice President of Business Development Dan Balow, Editorial Director Kelly McIntosh, Senior Fiction Editor Rebecca Germany, and newly promoted Acquisitions Editor for Fiction, Annie Tipton. In Tipton’s new role, she is responsible for developing and implementing Barbour’s fiction strategy and acquiring new full-length titles.
“Fiction is very important to Barbour. In fact, it accounts for over a third of our annual sales,” stated Dan Balow. “Creating this fiction team and promoting Annie Tipton to the role of acquisitions editor will give us the vision and resources to make one of Barbour’s strengths even stronger. Rebecca Germany guided fiction to where we are today. This team will work together to make it even more successful.”
Barbour Publishing is the leading publisher of promotional Christian books and releases 300–350 titles annually in a variety of categories, including devotional, inspirational, Christian living, fiction, reference, youth, and children. For more information, visit www.barbourbooks.com.
