Headline Publishing Group

A powerful publisher of stylish bestsellers

 

PASSION, VISION, AMBITION

We have the virtues of an independent with the clout of a publishing giant: physically, digitally, globally.

Relationships are our business: we are passionate in our drive to deliver bestseller success and the whole team believes they can make a difference to an author’s career.

Our unique focus allows us to see the maverick potential that delivers the bestseller success other miss.

Home of the biggest bestselling brands

Headline was designed to be different, and we’ve been breaking the mould since our inception in 1986. Our eponymous flagship commercial imprint cut its teeth on discovering breathtaking new talent such as Martina Cole and Neil Gaiman – now giant brands of modern publishing – and we seek out the gold standard of commercial writers - Karen Rose and Simon Scarrow – names we know millions of readers will return to time and again.

And the brightest new talent

Headline Review publishes quality books for the lover of reading-group fiction.  We embrace incredible storytelling, fascinating settings and issue-driven narratives. Review is the showcase imprint for many of the UK’s biggest-selling authors such as Victoria Hislop, Penny Vincenzi, Jill Mansell and Adele Parks. It is home to genre-defying bestsellers as Deborah Harkness’s ALL SOULS trilogy and we are delighted to welcome the brilliant Alison Weir.

We have passion, vision and ambition

In the two and half years since it launched, the Eternal list has grown into a powerhouse. Our stellar line-up of authors features established New York Times bestsellers Katie Ashley, Maya Banks, Sylvia Day, Marie Force, J. Kenner, Beth Kery and Jill Shalvis, as well as fresh, original debut talent. Our dedicated Eternal team are passionate about our promise that whatever a reader’s taste or mood, they will find their heart’s desire on our exciting list.

Tinder Press

Tinder Press is Headline's literary imprint – a space where classy, intelligent writing can thrive. Since our launch in 2013, we've hit the bestseller lists with Maggie O'Farrell's INSTRUCTIONS FOR A HEATWAVE, Patrick Gale's A PLACE CALLED WINTER and Helen Walsh's THE LEMON GROVE and won awards for our cover designs and marketing and publicity campaigns. Over the next year, we're looking forward to publishing much anticipated new novels by bestselling authors Sarah Winman and Eowyn Ivey.

Our Tinder Press Book Club specifically reaches out to independent bookshops, and Tinder Press authors regularly appear at all the major UK literary festivals and attend events the length and breadth of the country. We want Tinder Press to feel fresh and relevant, and we want to engage with readers as directly as possible. Above all, we'd love Tinder Press to feel like a conversation of the best sort – a conversation we're hoping you will want to join.
