Press Release: IPG Signs Thirteen New Independent Publishers for Distribution
Effective November 1, 2013, Castle Rock Research (www.castlerockresearch.com) provides curriculum-based educational resources to students, parents and educators. Their print and online resources support its academic achievement performance by focusing on instruction, assessment, diagnostics and remediation. They will publish state-specific Common Core resources for the US market.
Dream Big Toy CompanyTM is the creator of Go! Go! Sports GirlsTM dolls and books (www.gogosportsgirls.com), a collection of fun and educational products to promote self-appreciation and the benefits of healthy life-skills for girls ages 3-12. The cloth dolls are multicultural, age and size appropriate, and do not encourage an older or overly mature image. The image is innocent with a subtle yet strong message to appreciate and be true to oneself. With close ties to The Brave Girls Alliance and other girl empowerment organizations, this publisher is already well positioned in the media.
Jolly Fish Press (www.jollyfishpress.com) is a rapidly growing publisher of trade fiction and select nonfiction with the skills to compete and the guts to innovate in the constantly evolving book market. Each book is beautifully designed and enthusiastically marketed to the target audience, be it adult, young adult or new adult.
From Hide Stationery Ltd., a quality stationery purveyor based in the UK, comes Monsieur Notebook (www.monsieurnotebook.com), a new line of fine leather-bound journals, notebooks, and sketchbooks in a variety of sizes, papers, and colors-all bound in handsome, durable, genuine leather-with ribbon marker and elastic closure.
Additionally, IPG's academic and professional distribution division, River North Editions, has entered into agreements with five new academic publishers in the second half of 2013-Manohar Books, Portal Books, Bertz + Fischer, Hoover Institution Press and Wit University Press.
