Hay House The UK office will publish between six and ten titles a year, split 50-50 between mind, body and soul and personal development titles. Looking for 'authors with lots of energy who can promote themselves and work closely with us; not an endless stream of authors, just a few that we can build into strong brands. We've just signed Scottish medium Gordon Smith who is great for us. Our area doesn't really follow other genres of publishing. The buyers are very discerning, they know their stuff and you can't pull the wool over their eyes and wouldn't want to. Judging by our maket research, people just aren't impressed by celebrity endorsements of a yoga teacher, say, as they would be by many years of practice so we just want someone who has a strong background in whatever they are writing about. What we can give them is access to an international market.' Hay House, Unit 202, Canalot Production Studios, 222 Kensal Road, London, W10 5BN; tel: 020 89 1230; e-mail:
