Yen Press Expands Distribution Deal with Diamond To Bring More Books To The UK
17/03/2017 1 Comment
Yen Press have announced that they will be expanding their partnership with Diamond so that a wider variety of books will become available through official UK retailers and re-sellers.
Currently Yen Press, which is based in America, and UK based book distributor Diamond work together in order to bring Yen Press titles to the UK; but from the 5th June 2017 this partnership will expand to allow Diamond to publish and distribute the books within the UK on behalf of Yen Press as explained in a recent post on the blog.
Effective June 5, 2017, Diamond Comic Distributors will assume exclusive sales and distribution for Yen Press outside of the North American market in traditional and non-traditional book channels, a deal that was announced today at London Book Fair 2017. This is a significant expansion of Yen’s existing relationship with Diamond for the comic book specialty market, and, most importantly, gives Diamond exclusive rights to offer Yen Press titles in the UK and Ireland book markets.
Specific details on how this partnership will operate have yet to be confirmed but its assumed this partnership will operate in a similar manner to KAZE’s partnership with Manga and FUNimation UK’s partnership with Anime Limited whereby the contents will be the same as the america with minor differences such as UK related logos and pricing details.
In any event this partnership is a great way for more Manga and Light Novel books from Yen Press to be published in to the UK and be purchasble through various retailers within the UK rather than selective online retailers such as Amazon UK.
