Sales and Distribution Press Release

New arrangements at Sandstone: sales to David Segrue, distribution via BookSource; publicity to continue with Ruth Killick

Award-winning Scottish independent publisher Sandstone Press today announces new sales and distribution arrangements. Formerly part of Faber Factory Plus, Sandstone Press titles will be sold by David Segrue from 1 April 2016. Distribution will be handled by Book Source from 1 February.

The company will continue its relationship with Faber Factory Powered by Constellation to distribute and promote Sandstone ebooks, and its publicity arrangement with Ruth Killick Publicity.

Sandstone Press Managing Director, Robert Davidson, commented, ‘We spent four years with Faber Factory Plus which gave us a great foundation upon which we can continue to grow.

David Segrue Ltd is well known and highly respected within the trade. We have appreciated the skilled distribution services provided by MDL and then GBS, but are pleased to return to BookSource: we know they are efficient and responsive to the requirements of our customers.

We have an exceptionally strong list for 2016 including Once a Crooked Man by NCIS star David McCallum (January), Ordeal by award-winning crime writer Jorn Lier Horst, and the paperbacks of Jennifer Morag Henderson’s acclaimed biography of Josephine Tey, and Ronnie Browne’s That Guy Fae the Corries. We have some terrific contemporary fiction and, in August, Upbeat, the story of the National Youth Orchestra of Iraq by its musical director Paul MacAlindin. We look forward to working with our new partners with great optimism and enthusiasm.’

David Segrue said, ‘I am delighted to be working with Sandstone Press at a time when the physical book is back in vogue and book sellers around the country are back in growth. It’s always exciting to help build an independent publisher’s profile and Sandstone have a great list this year for me and my reps to begin that journey.’
