The latest news from the Fremantle Press Sales, Rights and Distribution Manager, Clive Newman.
Over the years we have built up a number of contacts in the bookselling industry in Singapore. I’ve been involved in the Asian Festival of Children’s Content and the Singapore Writers Festival and worked with the high-profile Bookaburra Singapore to ensure that our authors who were participating in the various festivals had their books available. As a result of that Fremantle Press is pleased to announce a new distribution agreement, effective this week, with the Singapore-based company Closetful of Books. Owner Denise Tan has a strong background in the book trade, having worked with well-known Singapore bookshop Bookaburra for a number of years. Her new company offers distribution services and coordination of promotional opportunities in Singapore.
Denise will select a number of our titles for her program, beginning with our brand new publication Darcy Moon and the Deep-Fried Frogs. Author Catherine Carvell lives in Singapore and is already booked for sessions with students at the Australian International School and a book launch.
The arrangement with Closetful of Books is an exciting new development in the wider distribution of our titles and we look forward to working closely with Denise.
