CHICAGO, IL – Independent Publishers Group (IPG) is pleased to announce that it has partnered with international bestselling author Sylvia Day on the US distribution of her latest novel, So Close. Sylvia Day’s award-winning novels have sold more than 20 million copies in over 40 countries worldwide.

In September 2022, IPG signed an exclusive US physical book sales & distribution agreement with Day’s publishing company, Sylvia Day LLC, on four front list titles, including So Close, released March 28, 2023.

“IPG is thrilled to have the opportunity to represent such an accomplished bestselling author as Sylvia Day,” said Alex Kampmann, Vice President of Business Development at IPG. “We look forward to supporting Sylvia and her works through our dynamic sales, marketing and distribution solutions.”

A contemporary gothic set in present-day New York City, So Close follows the story of Kane Black, a grieving widower who is left reeling from the loss of his wife, Lily, when he sees a woman who bears a striking resemblance to her on the streets of Manhattan and sweeps her away. The story unfolds from the perspective of Kane’s jealous mother, Aliyah, his vengeful sister-in-law, Amy, and his wife. It deals with the ramifications of a sudden return, the trauma each has endured and the secrets that connect them.

So Close is available at bookstores and retailers nationwide. Too Far, the second title in Day’s Blacklist duology, will release in October 2023.

About Independent Publishers Group:
Founded in 1971, IPG was the first organization specifically created for the purpose of marketing titles from independent presses to the book trade. 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. With consistent growth year over year, IPG’s success has come from supporting and encouraging the growth of its publishing partners in the United States and worldwide. IPG was acquired by Chicago Review Press in 1987, and this acquisition formed the parent company Chicago Review Press, Inc., which now owns Chicago-based indie publishers Chicago Review Press and Triumph Books.

Cardinal Rule’s newest imprint came in July of this year when Dismondy acquired Bucket Filler Books. Known for its line of best-selling children’s titles by Carol McCloud, Bucket Fillers has sold more than three million books and been translated into ten different languages since McCloud’s debut title, “Have You Filled a Bucket Today: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids.”
