Entangled Publishing, LLC and Publishers Group West (“PGW”), a Perseus Books Group company, announced today that PGW will begin distributing two of Entangled’s print imprints. Entangled Select and Entangled Teen will be distributed in the US and Canada; two additional digital-only imprints will be distributed worldwide beginning February 2012. The deal comprises several of Entangled’s backlist titles, including the break out young adult titles Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout and Touch by Jus Accardo. In addition, over sixty frontlist titles for 2012 and additional titles contracted for 2013 from NYT and USA Today best-selling authors such as Caridad Piñeiro and Jennie Bentley writing as Jenna Bennett, and best-selling authors Candace Havens, Melissa Bourbon Ramirez, Rosalie Lario, Laura Kaye, Theresa Meyers, Nina Croft, and Jennifer L. Armentrout are part of the agreement.
“Our partnership with PGW will be instrumental in reaching a wider audience, and with their impressive worldwide distribution operation and sales force they will ensure continued growth. We are aligning ourselves with powerful industry leaders, enabling Entangled to become a substantial player within the romance and young adult book markets,” said Entangled’s publisher, Liz Pelletier.
Entangled Select is a new imprint announced for Entangled Publishing in 2012, featuring a collection of novels edited by editorial director Stacy Cantor-Abrams, managing editor Heather Howland, and the publisher. Each collection will be branded and marketed specific to the editor selecting the acquisitions.
“We are very pleased to partner with Entangled Publishing and their growing roster of authors, and to help them achieve success in both print and digital distribution,” said Kevin Votel, PGW’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development.
Entangled Publishing continues to break the traditional publishing mold by offering every author strong editorial support, a publicist, a personalized marketing plan, and now worldclass distribution for all of their titles. With its unique revenue-sharing business model, Entangled has managed to assemble an amazing staff of more than forty talented individuals and industry leaders in a record time frame, contracting over one hundred seventy-five titles to date.
