Gaspereau Press Seals Paperback Deal for ‘The Sentimentalists’

Gaspereau Press has licensed the Canadian trade paperback rights for Johanna Skribsrud‘s 2010 Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning novel The Sentimentalists to Douglas & McIntyre. The deal will help meet the prize-winning demand for the book.

Last week Gaspereau Press said they would continue their practice of hand-printing 1,000 books per week, creating a fraction of the books needed. The new partnership with Douglas & McIntyre allows them to meet that demand.

The publisher explained in a blog post: “The first 30,000 copies … will be shipped from the bindery on November 19, less than 10 days after the Giller was awarded. Paper is on hand for an immediate reprint of 20,000 copies. The e-book is already a bestseller on Kobo and Douglas & McIntyre will make it available through other e-book retailers, including the Apple iBookstore, Amazon Kindle, Sony eBook store, eBooks.com and Barnes & Noble’s Nook Store.” (Via Sarah Weinman)
