Even as the AMS/PGW fallout continues, Shelf Awareness reminds us that small presses can switch distribution companies amicably and lacking the slightest hint of drama. Effective June 1, McBooks Press of Ithaca, N.Y., will be distributed by Independent Publishers Group. The 27 year old publishing house, best known for its historical fiction, especially nautical fiction, has been with National Book Network since 2002. McBooks Press president Alex Skutt praised both IPG–”for its effective sales and operations, its excellent personnel, its financial stability and the help and advice with which it provides its clients”–and NBN, from whom the company is leaving “on the best of terms. They have done a fine job for us and were particularly helpful to McBooks Press when we were impacted by the 2002 demise of LPC Group.”
