There has been a lot going on behind the scenes at Bard Press over the last several months and we are finally at the point where we can start talking about that work with everyone.
First, we are announcing that Bard Press is moving distribution to Two Rivers Distribution in September. You can see the official press release here.
We are really excited about this move. Two Rivers is a part of Ingram Content, which through Ingram Publisher Services is the second largest book distributor in the US. Two Rivers specializes in non-fiction with great business book publishers like Harvard Business Review Press and Plata Publishing, the publisher of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, among their clients. They also represent other amazing publishers like The New Press, Spiegel & Grau, and Molly Stern’s new publishing house Zando.
With the change in distribution, we also did work on the future of Bard Press itself. In addition to my current role as publisher, I will become the owner and operator of Bard Press in September. We’ll continue to work with all the authors that we have published over the last 25 years and explore new ways to expand the reach of our amazing backlist.
In the coming months, I will be announcing new projects that we will be bringing to market with our existing authors and new authors to Bard Press.
I want to thank National Book Network for their support over the last 25 years. I want to thank our authors for their continued support and enthusiasm. And, most importantly, I want to thank Ray Bard for all of his work over the last three years as we worked through various iterations of our work together.
I am so happy to have reached this point and feel honored to have the opportunity to continue the tradition of publishing amazing books at Bard Press.
