Bonnier Publishing Fiction and Allen & Unwin have organised a new sales and distribution arrangement covering Australia and New Zealand.
Allen & Unwin will represent the existing children’s fiction imprints Hot Key Books and Piccadilly Press, the new adult fiction imprints Zaffre and Twenty7, and also the romantic fiction publisher Totally Entwined Group.
Mark Smith, chief executive of Bonnier Publishing Fiction, said: “I am delighted that Bonnier Publishing Fiction will be partnering with Allen & Unwin in the key markets of Australia and New Zealand. I have long admired the tradecraft of the Allen & Unwin team and as we invest in the expansion of our adult and children’s fiction imprints, it is gratifying to be working with a partner whose experience and reputation in their market is unrivalled.”
Robert Gorman, c.e.o. of Allen & Unwin, added: “We love working with publishers full of ambition and energy and Bonnier Publishing Fiction certainly is that. They may be the newest kids on the block but they bring deep publishing experience through the stellar team they have assembled. Australian and New Zealand readers will soon know plenty about them.”
The deal will commence on 1st January 2016.
