"CSI New York" Actor Hill Harper launches publishing imprint

Posted by Admin On January - 11 - 2012


Burbank, CA (BlackNews.com) — Actor Hill Harper has partnered with Scholastic teen author, Pamela Wells, to create a multicultural children-publishing imprint called Harper & Wells Books.

“I’ve been wanting to have my own multicultural children book publishing imprint for some time,” Hill Harper said. “My focus is on publishing books about black issues. I have always wanted a children book imprint that represents our voices. This is an extension of my belief that you manifest your own destiny in life.”

The first two titles from Harper & Wells Books are middle grade titles targeted at eight to twelve-year old readers.

The Wiley Boys by Hill Harper, is about three sports-obsessed adopted brothers who stumble across an advertisement that leads them to being junior agents at the Sports Bureau of Investigations. This book is available online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other online stores including the book’s web site at www.wileyboys.com

The second title, Willow Fedler’s Rules for Girls by Pamela Wells, is about a 12-year old young “Oprah” who shares advice and experiences as she shares stories about growing up. This book is available on the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook.

Because Harper & Wells Books have just signed a major distribution deal, readers should be on the lookout for more upcoming titles. The company plans to publish Black celebrity books for children, and in the future, will offer publishing opportunities for multicultural writers.
