CHICAGO, IL — Independent Publishers Group (IPG) has added seven new publishers to its Trafalgar Square Publishing (TSP) division.

TSP is IPG’s international division and is known for distributing a broad range of top titles and authors from publishers from the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

“TSP continues to attract fantastic publishers out of the UK, Australia and other countries,” said Brooke O’Donnell, managing director for TSP. “America’s interest in books from these countries hasn’t waned. In fact, I would say that they are even more relevant now given the present challenges facing the world. We’re all looking at things a bit more global ly and our growing list offers great new voices and diverse perspectives.”

Otter-Barry Books (O-BB), whose distribution with TSP will begin July 15, 2020, is a UK-based children’s publisher founded by Janetta Otter-Barry who previously ran her own imprint at Francis Lincoln. O-BB produces quality picture books, non-fiction titles and poetry that address important themes like identity, family, diversity, cross-cultural issues, inclusion and world history. O-BB’s authors include such best-sellers as Jackie Morris and James Mayhew.

Little Steps, whose distribution starts June 1, 2020, is a bespoke Australian publisher focused on bringing beautiful and high-quality children’s books to the market. Also starting June 1 is Mount Orleans Press, which publishes books in the areas of poetry, cooking, travel, art, architecture and children’s publishing.

Ad Lib and The Lilliput Press start with TSP on July 1, 2020. Ad Lib is a new UK-based nonfiction publisher founded by John Blake, and they will release more than a dozen books each year covering true crime, autobiography/biography and military. The Lilliput Press is a well-established Dublin-based house specializing in biography, historical nonfiction, memoir and fiction, and includes books by James Joyce, John Moriarty and J.P. Donleavy.

TSP will also begin distributing both Richardson Publishing Group (RPG) and Fairlight Books in January 2021. RPG is a new London-based publisher founded by Will Richardson whose books both entertain and educate. Fairlight Books was founded in 2017 to publish, promote and support writers of literary fiction.

Today, IPG’s wide reach into the book market includes distribution of both print and e-books from a wide array of publishers, digital printing and traditional publishing.
