(Nashville, TN) August 11, 2016—HarperCollins Christian Publishing (HCCP) recently announced the promotion of two fiction editors, Becky Monds and Karli Jackson.

Monds will now be leading as an acquisitions editor for fiction and Jackson has been promoted to associate acquisitions editor. Monds joined the company’s fiction team as an editor nine years ago and has worked on multiple award-winning titles such as Mary Weber’s “Storm Siren” and “Siren’s Fury,” Kathryn Spring’s “The Dandelion Field,” Melanie Dickerson’s “The Golden Brain,” and Kelly Irvin’s “The Beekeeper’s Son.” In her new role, Monds will acquire new authors for both Thomas Nelson and Zondervan fiction.  She will continue to manage author relationships, monitor the fiction marketplace, and oversee editorial processes and business analytics.

Since coming to HCCP’s fiction team two and a half years ago as an associate editor, Jackson has managed editorial production schedules for titles from bestselling authors like Colleen Coble and Rachel Hauck, in addition to Amish novella collections “An Amish Harvest” and “An Amish Christmas Gift.” In her new position, Jackson will join Monds in acquiring new authors for both publishing houses, handling developmental edits, and facilitating author management.

Vice-president and fiction publisher, Daisy Hutton commented, “Becky and Karli have both made tremendous contributions to our editorial team, and we are excited for this opportunity to recognize their dedication to our authors and their writing, as well as to the success of our publishing group.”
