Legend Press acquire Paperbooks

Legend Press is acquiring independent publisher PaperBooks, a company formed by Keirsten Clark in 2006.

Tom Chalmers of Legend Press says on his blog

When they first appeared on the scene, I was aware of certain similarities with Legend Press, in terms of ethos and approach and they have a fantastic list of authors who I can't wait to work with and also to build with new commissioning.

Keirsten,who will now concentrate on her literary consultancy , said

This is a fantastic opportunity for PaperBooks and couldn't have come at a better time in the development of the company and the authors' careers.

Each company will run separately but under the same umbrella. Tom plans to increase the output of paperbooks and will appoint someone to run Paperbooks for him.

My good friend Paul Burman's book comes out soon under Paperbooks, so I hope this helps get his book The Snowing & Greening of Thomas Passmore a boost when released.

Thanks for the plug, Mike. Always much appreciated. And how about this new magazine-look? Love it. Very classy.

Thanks - I've had a bit of a make over and have moved the "blog" more over to a magazine.
