“Jordan’s accomplishments are worthy of sharing with the world, and it’s first-time authors like him that we had in mind when we undertook the creation of Balboa Press,” said Reid Tracy, Hay House CEO.
Bloomington, Ind. (PRWEB) July 19, 2010
Balboa Press—the self-publishing division of Hay House—announced Monday the release of “The Boy Who Conquered Everest,” an inspirational children’s book co-authored by Mt. Everest climber Jordan Romero and Katherine Blanc. The book chronicles Romero’s journey, which culminated with him becoming the youngest climber ever to summit the peak, on May 22, at just 13 years old.
“Jordan’s accomplishments are worthy of sharing with the world, and it’s first-time authors like him that we had in mind when we undertook the creation of Balboa Press,” said Reid Tracy, Hay House CEO. “His story will inspire children and adults alike, and we are pleased he chose to publish with Balboa.”
Balboa was launched by Hay House and Author Solutions on May 14 to give more authors the chance to bring their books to market. Hay House, which publishes about 100 titles annually, receives thousands of manuscripts each year that it simply can’t publish. This partnership will allow Hay House to monitor Balboa titles with an eye toward acquiring those that exhibit quality and achieve retail success.
Balboa also opens up publishing options to authors of genres Hay House hasn’t traditionally published, including fictional works and children’s books.
