Little, Brown Book Group has launched a new standalone imprint called Fleet.
The new imprint will publish a broad range of both literary fiction and non-fiction, putting out about 6-8 original works a year. The imprint will produce both paperbacks and e-books and will drop its first four titles in May 2016.
Ursula Doyle will be the publisher of the list. “I chose the name Fleet because Fleet Street is just around the corner from the Hachette offices, and I love the resonance of the name and its long-standing association with print,” explained Doyle in a statement. “And of course I hope the word’s other meaning will reflect our publishing – fleet of foot, alert, responsive. I look forward to building a varied, lively and engaging list of new and existing authors whose work will be published with enthusiasm, focus and determination.”
