McFarland Expands with New Imprint
JEFFERSON, North Carolina – November 3, 2016 – Scholarly publisher McFarland has announced the launch in November of Exposit Books, a new imprint combining serious nonfiction with a bookstore-first approach. Exposit’s initial offering is Finding Jacob Wetterling by Robert M. Dudley. The book covers in detail the 1989 kidnapping in St. Joseph, Minnesota, of 11-year-old Wetterling, the remarkable response from the community and local and state authorities, the 27-year investigation and its heartbreaking conclusion. The first full group of titles, set for a fall 2017 release, will likewise feature true crime topics.
“We’re releasing six titles the first season, and true crime authors Kevin M. Sullivan and Clayton Delery-Edwards are both signed on and contributing books for the rollout,” said Executive Editor Lisa Camp. “We will be publishing a wide range of titles, eventually including books about entertainment, psychology, sex, health and history. Our plan is to bring Exposit to 24 to 30 books annually.”
Submissions from authors and literary agents are invited, and should be directed to Camp’s attention at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the imprint, go to www.expositbooks.com.
