We are very excited today to share the news that Bookouture has been acquired by Hachette UK – the second largest publisher in the UK. Hachette is home to publishing divisions like Orion, Little, Brown and Headline and many massive bestselling authors – from JK Rowling, to Ian Rankin, to Carole Matthews.
We’ve known the Hachette team for some time and as well as being some of the best people in the business, they very much share our vision for developing and growing Bookouture.
Oliver Rhodes, our CEO comments
‘Seeing Bookouture flourish in the past four years has been an incredible and rare privilege – we have an extremely talented and dedicated team and a fantastic group of authors who we are very proud of. What is so exciting about taking this next step and becoming part of Hachette UK is that it will help us to build on the significant momentum we already have and achieve even greater things for our authors.’
With the move to Hachette, our goals are still the same – to keep improving our publishing model and the value that we add to our authors. We now have even greater resources to do that.
We know the coming years will be a very exciting time for us and look forward to sharing that with you.
