(May 23, 2016) Nashville, TN - Turner Publishing Company announced today that it has acquired the publishing imprints of LongHill Partners, Inc., of Woodstock, VT effective June 30, 2016. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Turner Publishing has acquired LongHill’s titles, inventory, and related assets -- over 700 titles for adults and children published by four imprints: Jewish Lights, SkyLight Paths, Christian Journeys, and Gemstone Press.
Jewish Lights has a robust catalog devoted to Jewish thought, history, religion, and heritage for people of all faiths and backgrounds. SkyLight Paths includes titles for seekers and believers of all traditions, and includes the sub-imprint Christian Journeys focusing on progressive Christian thought and experience. GemStone Press publishes books about jewelry and gems for the consumer and gem trade. Included in the acquired lists are a variety of bestsellers and bestselling authors, such as Thomas Moore, Lawrence Kushner, Rabbi Sandy Eisenberg Sasso and Antoinette Matlins.
"LongHill’s successful list of titles is an important addition to our growth as a publisher," said Todd Bottorff, president and publisher of Turner Publishing. "We are certain that these titles will continue to thrive and grow as they join the list of other bestselling Turner titles."
Turner is a fully integrated publishing company that has over 3,800 titles in a wide range of fiction and nonfiction categories including home & gardens, health & wellness, history, politics & current affairs, faith, and self-improvement, among many others.
Stuart Matlins, LongHill Partners president and publisher, noted that being part of Turner Publishing would benefit all of its authors with wider distribution to the book trade and gift market as Turner grows LongHill’s well established publishing programs.
