Green Tree, Bloomsbury’s new health and wellbeing imprint, celebrated its first birthday on Tuesday night (10th July), and looked ahead to an "exciting and inspiring" list of upcoming authors and titles.
Welcoming writers, agents, and journalists to a transformed "in bloom" conservatory at the Bloomsbury offices, Charlotte Croft, publisher of Green Tree, said in a short speech that the imprint was “going from strength to strength” and that the party was “a celebration of how far we’ve come, and our excitement for the future.”
From L to R: Katherine Macpherson, publicity manager of Green Tree; authors Maisie Hill and Anna Williamson; Charlotte Croft, publisher of Green Tree; authors Nick Duerden and Christine Armstrong; and Lizzy Ewer, head of marketing and publicity at Green Tree
Praising the authors themselves, she said: “We couldn’t wish for a more enthusiastic, fantastic, inspiring group of authors – as publishers we all hope to work with authors who are experts, are passionate about their subject, and most crucially, know how to share that knowledge and enthusiasm with their readers – it shines off the page, and we’re proud to have such a shining group of authors here this evening.”
Speeches were also made by four authors from the list: Anna Williamson, author of Breaking Mad and Breaking Mum and Dad and the first writer published under the imprint in 2017; Christine Armstrong, author of upcoming The Mother of All Jobs; Nick Duerden, author of Get Well Soon and upcoming A Life Less Lonely; and Maisie Hill, author of upcoming Period Power.
Launched last year, the imprint was set up to be a home for books that “inspire, inform and motivate”.
