US and Canada distribution deal
Independent children's and YA publisher Sweet Cherry Publishing has signed a US and Canada distribution deal with Baker & Taylor. The deal takes effect from 1 July.
Sweet Cherry reports a near trebling of turnover in the year 2017/2018.
Jeffrey Tegge, vice president of client services at Baker & Taylor Publishing Services, said: "The quality of Sweet Cherry's publishing programme immediately attracted us. We saw terrific potential to partner with them to launch their list to bring their titles to children throughout North America."
Sweet Cherry md Abdul Thadha said: "We have already witnessed the worldwide appeal of our titles and we are confident they will be loved by American readers. This is going to be a big year for Sweet Cherry and new distributors will play an important role in our growth and global expansion for years to come. While the UK remains important to us, international trade is a large part of our business we are seeing many opportunities to grow."
