Homebound Publications is pleased to announce that, as of May 1, 2017, Midpoint Trade Books shall be the distributor for our entire house and all its divisions including Owl House Books and Hiraeth Press. In this landmark agreement, Homebound Publications has achieved national distribution of its entire library. Now retailers will be able to order our titles with ease through their preferred source, including industry leaders Ingram and Baker & Taylor. In addition, the press signed a supplement deal with Gazelle Book Services in England, which will handle sales in the United Kingdom and abroad. This is a huge stride forward for our burgeoning press. All our offerings will now be readily available in your independent bookstores as well as larger retailers such as Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
Founded in Connecticut in 2011, Homebound Publications is one of the rising independent publishers in the country. Collectively through our imprints, we publish between fifteen to twenty books each year and we have almost seventy-five titles distributed worldwide. Over the years, our authors have received dozens of awards including: Foreword Reviews’ Book of the Year, Nautilus Book Awards, and Saltire Literary Awards. Highly-respected among bookstores, readers, and authors alike, Homebound Publications has a proven devotion to quality, originality, and integrity. As an independent publisher, we strive to ensure, that the mainstream is not the only stream. It is our intention at Homebound Publications to preserve contemplative storytelling. We publish full-length introspective works of creative non-fiction, travel writing, poetry, and novels.
Midpoint was founded in 1996 by a group of industry professionals, including current President Eric Kampmann and Executive Vice President Chris Bell. Their office is located in the Flatiron District of New York City, and represents independent publishers across the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. Today, Midpoint retains the same entrepreneurial spirit with which the company was founded.
We look forward to this exciting time!
