Thistledown Press Changes Distributors!

Attention booksellers (and readers) who want new copies of my 2011 White Pine Award winning novel, The Monkeyface Chronicles!

(. . . and my other award-nominated Thistledown titles, Cheeseburger Subversive and Featherless Bipeds. . . )

Effective immediately, Thistledown books will be distributed by UTP (University of Toronto Press).

The University of Toronto Press Distribution represents more than 70 book imprints for distribution in Canada, the United States, and around the world. UTP maintains facilities in Toronto with more than 60,000 square feet of warehouse space, and a Buffalo, New York, location for expediting U.S. shipments.

Thistledown is looking forward to working with UTP and expect that our reach and delivery of books will be substantially improved.

Thistledown is also pleased to announce that they have retained Kate Walker & Associates for sales representation in Canada.

Kate Walker & Company Ltd. is a national sales agency with representatives working across Canada. They are Canada’s only national commissioned rep group for this market and have been in existence for over fifty years. They represent 30 distinctive Canadian, U.S. and international publishers.

Thistledown is anticipating a close working relationship with Kate Walker & Company and expect that this move will have a very positive effect on sales.
