Tiller Press, A New Imprint from Simon & Schuster

tillerSimon & Schuster will launch in June Tiller Press, a trend driven imprint focused on publishing timely, culturally relevant books, it was announced today by Liz Perl, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at Simon & Schuster.

Tiller will publish practical nonfiction, serving readers clamoring for information to solve real-world problems, achieve their goals, and lead richer, more meaningful lives. The list will include books on wellness, self-expression, empathy, food and cooking, diet, parenting, home, workplace, play, creativity, travel, fan culture, and civic engagement.

Tiller Press has a slate of 19 titles set for 2019, including:

  • Sorted, A Transgender Memoir: Growing Up, Coming Out, and Finding My Place by Jackson Bird
  • The Art of Flaneuring: How to Wander with Intention and Discover a Better Life by Erika Owen
  • Seeing Red: Transforming Women’s Health One Period at a Time by Kirsten Karchmer
  • The Art of Jin Shin: The Japanese Practice of Healing with your Fingertips by Alexis Brink
  • Meals that Heal: 100 Everyday Anti-inflammatory Recipes and Menus for Brain, Heart, and Gut Health by Carolyn Williams
  • Soulbbatical: A Corporate Rebel’s Guide to Finding Your Best Life by Shelley Paxton

“The time is right to turn to the latest in social listening, research and analytical capabilities to discover new readers and meet their needs with the right books at the right time,” said Perl. “The skills developed for Tiller Press will also serve our larger publishing effort as we develop a deeper understanding of our readers.”

Theresa DiMasi leads Tiller Press as Vice President, Publisher. Most recently, she was Vice President, Head of Content and Editor in Chief at Weight Watchers International, and prior to that served in various senior editorial, content strategy, and product innovation roles at Condé Nast and elsewhere.
“We are committed to finding audiences hungry for books that have yet to be written, and using data science and trend analysis for taking risks on ideas and authors that might not traditionally find their way to a publisher,” said DiMasi. “This approach will enable us to bring books to engaged, niche and underserved audiences.”

Sam Ford has joined Tiller as Director of Cultural Intelligence, overseeing the imprint’s cultural trends analysis and research efforts. Ford is a research affiliate with MIT Comparative Media Studies/Writing and a Knight News Innovation Fellow with Columbia University’s Tow Center for Digital Journalism. He previously served as Vice President, Innovation & Engagement, at Univision’s Fusion Media Group.

Anja Schmidt is the Executive Editor, most recently serving as Editorial Director at Oxmoor House, part of Time Inc. Books.

The imprint’s name serves as a nod to the iconic Simon & Schuster sower, while also reflecting Tiller Press’s mandate of cultivating new ideas and voices.
