Macmillan Reaches Partnership with St. Martin's Press and Entangled for New Distribution
In the new distribution arrangement and joint venture agreement, Macmillan will distribute English language e-books of Entangled's new publications in all domestic and international markets and for all platforms where Macmillan currently does business.
With unprecedented growth, in a year Entangled has exploded to twelve imprints with more than 350 authors and thirty titles released per month. In 2012, Entangled published the sixth overall best-selling book of the year and eight national best sellers. The agreement includes additional resources and personnel from Macmillan to strengthen Entangled's infrastructure. "This partnership brings a global leader in print and digital distribution, ensuring Entangled can continue to support our rapid growth and success," says CEO and publisher of Entangled, Liz Pelletier.
In a separate agreement, St. Martin's Press will launch a new joint venture imprint known as St. Martin's/Entangled which will bring into print and publish a select number of Entangled's digital first titles.
"We couldn't be more excited about our alliance with these giants in the industry," says Liz Pelletier . "To be able to bring our titles to a global audience, meeting both the needs and expectations of our authors and readers everywhere, has exceeded my expectations as a publisher. We look forward to an exciting collaboration with Macmillan and St. Martin's Press."
John Sargent , Macmillan's CEO, said, "We are hugely impressed with Liz Pelletier 's vision and what she has accomplished in such a short time. We found her out-of-the-box approach to publishing incredibly exciting and saw potential to work together with her on several levels. We think Liz and Entangled have found a new way forward and we think we can help build on that remarkable success."
