Last week, Legend Press launched their Think Independent campaign, highlighting the independent publisher’s commitment to supporting independent bookshops.
100 independent bookshops received complimentary copies of Teach Her, the new book by Channel 4 and BBC comedy writer, Mark Kotting, along with postcards and other promotional material. Booksellers were then free to do what they wanted with their copies – sell them, review them, or use them as part of a promotional campaign of their own.
Teach Her was the first of the Legend Press titles to be distributed as part of the campaign, but others will follow throughout the summer.
Speaking to the The Bookseller, Tom Chalmers MD of Legend Press said: “As an independent and innovative publisher we are keen to work closely with independent bookshops. The two should be a natural fit, but often find themselves fighting the same battles separately. The aim of Think Independent is to ensure both publishers and bookshops remain independent but have greater strength through partnership.”
Teach Her was released on 1st May priced at £7.99
