Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CHICAGO - Jan 27, 2017 - Boutique of Quality Books Publishing Company and its two imprints: BQB Publishing and WriteLife Publishing are pleased to announce that as of January 1, 2017 their book distribution is being handled by Independent Publishers Group of Chicago.
Boutique of Quality Books, an indie publisher that was founded in August, 2010, has grown from a small boutique publisher to a mid-sized indie publisher with over 150 books and two imprints. According to Terri Leidich, President and Publisher of Boutique of Quality Books Publishing, one of the biggest challenges that small to mid-sized publishers face is establishing hands-on contact with booksellers of all sizes. Leidich stated “We needed a distributor that could keep up with our growth and our changing and varying distribution needs and get our books into the hands of booksellers all across the country, and even the world. And, IPG has the ability to do that for us. We are delighted to have the IPG team and expertise behind us.”
IPG is the original and second largest independent book distributor in the United States. Their innovative publisher services, aggressive marketing, and extensive reach ensure access into every imaginable channel, including gift, specialty, wholesale, and digital accounts worldwide. Richard T. Williams, Director of Publisher Development for IPG stated, “The books published by BQB Publishing and WriteLife Publishing are a good fit for IPG.”
“To this point in time,” Leidich continued, “BQB and WriteLife books have won a variety of awards and garnered strong, positive reviews, but with limited distribution, many readers have not yet enjoyed the talents of the writers we publish. With IPG’s sales representation and distribution efforts, BQB and WriteLife books will be easily available to booksellers of all sizes, which will result in readers having easy access to our titles.”
