Headline was founded in 1986 with a single promise at its heart: to publish the books people want to read. Sometimes, the simplest ideas are best.
Headline has spent over three decades creating books people want to read and our passion for the commercial means we are home to some of the UK’s biggest-selling authors and continue to invest in new talent with bestseller potential.
Our nimble attitude towards the social reading era has allowed us to be playful with format as never before and create digital bestsellers. Our spirit of entertainment thrives in a world where direct communication means we can talk to readers, booksellers and reviewers to show and spread our love for books, at the touch of a button.
Headline will always represent a modern mindset and an energetic outlook. And always stand for best-in-class publishing.
Headline Fiction understands readers, what drives them to buy and read books and where and how they read them. We publish the novels people really want to read; the books that keep them reading into the early hours, with worlds people want to escape to and with characters they can relate to.
The Headline imprint is a highly commercial entertainment house; here we publish authors both genre defining and genre defying – both long-standing brands and exciting new talent. The category bestsellers on Headline’s list transport, entertain and make readers feel – they consistently satisfy the ebook addict and have instant appeal to the casual supermarket shopper.
Headline Review is Headline’s quality sister imprint for the lover of commercial reading group fiction.

Wildfire publishes a broad range of quality commercial fiction and non-fiction.

Wildfire’s overriding ambition is to publish compelling and thought-provoking books, books you will want to talk about endlessly with your friends, books that have a little bit of soul.
The Headline Non-Fiction list has a highly commercial focus and publishes across a range of genres including memoir, sport, humour, celebrity, music, online influencers, autobiography and TV tie-ins. Books with a clear hook that make you take notice from the first page – books that make you laugh, teach you something new, surprise you, or take you on a rollercoaster ride through someone else’s life. Our authors have drive, passion, energy and international appeal and are prepared to stand up and shout about how wonderful their books are, either from an existing platform or one we’ve built together.

In short, books which speak to real people about real issues.
