Bookmasters to Distribute Knox Robinson Publishing Titles
ASHLAND, OH—Sept. 4, 2012—Bookmasters Inc. has entered into an agreement with fast-growing British publisher Knox Robinson Publishing to distribute the publisher’s wide range of historical novels in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Latin America.
Knox Robinson was established in 2010 as an independent publishing house specializing in historical fiction, historical romance, and fantasy. After a successful first year during which Knox Robinson’s titles earned many positive reviews and sold thousands of novels throughout the UK, Europe, Australia, the United States, and Canada, founder Dana Celeste Robinson moved to secure North American, Australian, New Zealand, and Latin American distribution.
“Bookmasters was a logical choice for Knox Robinson as we are a house that is changing the old publishing model by incorporating the latest advances in technology; with its variety of services, we immediately knew that Bookmasters was the only distributor for us,” commented Robinson. “The team at Bookmasters has been very enthusiastic about our fiction lists and the book trailers, podcasts, multi platform phone and tablet app and historical mini documentaries that we produce to accompany our titles. We wanted a distributor that would encourage our innovative publishing ideas, and Bookmasters is forward-thinking in its approach to publishing.”
“Knox Robinson’s high-quality content and commitment to excellence, coupled with Dana’s powerful innate sense for effective marketing and promotion, have made them one of the most successful start-up small publishers on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Larry Bennett, president of distribution services at Bookmasters. “We are proud to be able to make these great titles widely available to readers in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Latin America.”
Knox Robinson Publishing titles will be available through major retailers and wholesalers, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Ingram, and Baker & Taylor.
