Simon & Schuster has expanded its sales and distribution agreement with Printers Row Publishing Group, a division of Readerlink Distribution Services, and will now add sales and distribution to the book trade in the U.S. and Canada for Printers Row imprints Silver Dolphin Books, Thunder Bay Press, Canterbury Classics and Portable Press. It will continue the existing agreement for Studio Fun. The changes will be effective on January 1 in Canada and on May 1 in the U.S.
Printers Row Publishing Group, San Diego, Calif., focuses on the trade, children's and special markets and publishes many educational and humorous books.
Simon Tasker, senior v-p and group publisher, Printers Row Publishing Group, commented: "With our recent publishing acquisitions, we needed to consolidate our distribution. Simon and Schuster has been a good partner in sales and distribution of our Studio Fun imprint, and we look forward to continued success as we expand with our other Printers Row Publishing Group imprints."
