Ebury Partners with Steven Bartlett to Launch Flight Books

28th June 2024

Ebury has partnered with our very own Steven Bartlett to launch Flight Books, an innovative new imprint dedicated to “empowering extraordinary voices on a global scale” using an “AI-powered, data-first, growth-focused” approach.

Flight Books represents a collaboration between Ebury and Bartlett’s media, marketing, and investment company, Flight Group. This venture is another milestone in Bartlett’s rapidly expanding publishing career, building on the success of his books, The Diary Of A CEO (Ebury, 2023) and Happy Sexy Millionaire (Yellow Kite, 2021), as well as his WHSmith “Steven Bartlett Recommends” series.

Joel Rickett, managing director of Ebury and Quadrille, secured the deal in partnership with Bartlett’s literary agent, Adrian Sington, at Kruger Cowne.

Flight Books will feature works from prominent guests on Bartlett’s podcast, “The Diary Of A CEO,” which was Apple’s top UK podcast in 2023. The first release will be the memoir of athlete Russ Cook, who raised over £1m for charity through his ultra-marathon. Titled Hardest Geezer: Becoming the First Person to Run the Entire Length of Africa, it is set for release on October 24, 2024.

Following this, Codie Sanchez, founder and CEO of Contrarian Thinking, will debut with Main Street Millionaire: How to Make Extraordinary Wealth Buying Ordinary Businesses, scheduled for December 5, 2024.

Other notable authors under the imprint include Dr. Tara Swart, a neuroscientist and author of The Source, who was a guest on the most-listened-to episode of Bartlett’s podcast, and Kristen Holmes, global head of human performance at WHOOP. Additionally, Flight Books has acquired two upcoming books from relationship expert, TV presenter, and author Paul C Brunson, with the first, Keep Love, expected in February 2025.

Bartlett shared his vision: “Flight Books is dedicated to empowering extraordinary voices on a global scale. Our goal is to leverage our expertise in storytelling to create a global platform for groundbreaking narratives and inspirational stories. With our AI-powered, data-first, growth-focused strategy, along with advanced social media marketing, data science, and testing capabilities, we will ensure our authors and their books receive the recognition and reach they deserve.”

Rickett expressed his enthusiasm: “Steven is an unparalleled connector and talent-spotter, and we are excited about how he’s identifying potential authors for our list. This partnership allows us to approach the publishing journey innovatively, using data and insights to shape the books and find new audiences. We are eager to see where this Flight story takes us.”

At Kruger Cowne, we are proud to exclusively represent Steven Bartlett as he continues to break new ground and inspire through his myriad ventures.
