Publisher Amy Einhorn joins new company

6/18/2014

NEW YORK (AP) — The publisher of Kathryn Stockett's "The Help" and other best-sellers is joining a new company.

Amy Einhorn has been named senior vice president and publisher of Flatiron Books, a Macmillan imprint. The announcement was made Wednesday by Flatiron President Bob Miller. Einhorn will start at Flatiron on July 21.

Einhorn is known as a hands-on editor with a sharp eye for literary and commercial books. As the head of Amy Einhorn Books at Penguin Random House, Einhorn acquired the million-selling "The Help," Jenny Lawson's "Let's Pretend This Never Happened" and Liane Moriarty's "The Husband's Secret" among others.

Miller founded Flatiron last year as a nonfiction imprint, but he said in a statement that hiring Einhorn provides an "irresistible" chance to publish fiction, too.
