Publisher's Notebook


Since our inception in 2014, Brown Paper Press has been distributed through IngramSpark, a subsidiary of Ingram Content Group. This arrangement has made our books readily accessible by every bookstore in America and in several foreign countries. 

But it also means we lack a dedicated sales force, or automatic exposure to established booksellers — which is a disadvantage when it comes to building a publishing business.

So, as of Jan. 1, 2017, our books will be made available through SCB Distributors — a full-service distributor and home to a number of small presses we greatly admire. At the same time, we will be making our first foray into offset printing with Peter Gajdics' The Inheritance of Shame.  Check out SCB's latest catalogue here

We are very excited about this new step, but it also means that we are taking a big risk. So think of us fondly, will you? With all your fingers crossed.
