Warner Faith

Aims to Increase

Output by 25%

NASHVILLE, TN/01/06/05—Nashville-based Warner Faith and Center Street, imprints of The Time Warner Book Group, plan to expand their combined annual output from 45 to 60 titles by 2006 (by about 25 percent). As part of the expansion, the Southern division has named Chip McGregor as associate publisher, with both acquisition and editing duties. McGregor will report to Publisher Rolf Zettersten, who will now focus on broader strategic matters.

The Center Street imprint will debut this month as the first imprint for TWBG since Warner Faith began in 2001. TWBG hopes to capitalize on a growing demand for values-based literature which reflects wholesome lifestyles. The Center Street line will include health, fitness, self-help, motivational and regional titles. The new imprint was partly prompted by authors for Warner Faith, who wanted broader mainstream exposure. The two imprints are designed to appeal to the Southern and Midwestern areas of America.
