Barlow Book Publishing’s first book, The YOU Factor, has been sold to two key markets in Canada: Indigo and airport bookstores.
The sale was made by Barlow’s sales agent, Toronto-based Manda Group. The books should be on the shelves at Indigo in early September.
This is a major coup for the upstart publisher. Self-published titles have virtually no chance of earning shelf space at Indigo, which dominates the book market in Canada. However, last spring Barlow made a deal with Manda and the distribution agency Jaguar to supply and sell books in bookstores such as Indigo as well as online at Amazon.
The YOU Factor is currently available for purchase online in Canada and the U.S. at Amazon. The ebook will be available on all venues by the end of September.
