Douglas & McIntyre Has Filed For Bankruptcy

Canadian book publishing company D&M Publishers has filed for bankruptcy. The company said in a statement: “It is D&M’s intention to carry on its operations during this restructuring process.”

Earlier this year, the company restructured its management. In July, the company’s co-founder Scott McIntyre stepped down from his role as CEO, though he has stayed on as a board member. At that time, Rob Sanders, who founded and built D&M’s Greystone imprint, was promoted to SVP, new business development, international and publisher-at-large, and Jesse Finkelstein was promoted from director of operations and publishing services to chief operating officer.

The Globe and Mail has more: “The Vancouver-based publisher, which publishes under three separate imprints including Douglas & McIntyre, Greystone Books and New Society Publishers, says it will be working with financial advisory services company the Bowra Group to locate an investor or purchaser for its assets.”

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)
