Saraband shortlisted for Trade Publisher of the Year 2017
23 January 2017
Congratulations and good luck to member publisher
Saraband on being shortlisted for Trade Publisher
of the Year at the IPG Independent Publishing Awards.
The citation says that:
'Saraband could have had a tough 2016 after the closure of its
sales partner Faber Factory Plus, but instead it achieved a
dramatic increase in turnover. Graeme Macrae Burnet's Man Booker
shortlisted His Bloody Project was its standout bestseller, but it
had a diverse range of other hits, driven by excellent
collaboration with retailers and some non-traditional channels.
"Saraband has amazing energy and great focus in a challenging
market," judges said.'
Saraband is up against Faber & Faber, Icon Books and
Oneworld. The winner will be announced at a gala dinner during the
IPG's Annual Spring Conference on Thursday 9 February, hosted by
author, playwright and speaker Damian Barr.
