HarperCollins Christian Publishing has launched Elm Hill, a self-publishing imprint, in collaboration with Accurance, which provides a variety of production, promotion and content management services for publishers. Elm Hill will offer sales, marketing, promotion and distribution assistance through HCCP, featuring six tiers of packaged publishing services. All tiers include a combination of services: the editorial, marketing and production resources of Accurance, the opportunity for books to be featured and distributed through HCCP's sales channels, and a technology platform powered by FastPencil.
"The partnership between HCCP and Accurance will offer a one-of-a-kind experience and publishing path for self-published authors," said Pete Nikolai, publisher of Elm Hill and director of publishing services for HCCP. "Elm Hill authors will gain access to best-practice services, many never available before to self-publishing authors, to help polish their manuscripts, distribute their books to readers, and advance their publishing careers."
Jon Fitch, general manager of Elm Hill and president of Accurance, added: "After 18 years in the self-publishing industry, we know this is a revolutionary opportunity for authors."
