G2 Entertainment move distribution to BookSource

10 June 2021

G2 Entertainment, one of the country's leading publishers of sports and special interest books, has appointed Glasgow-based BookSource as its distribution partner.

With a catalogue of over 300 titles, G2 Entertainment work with some of the biggest sports clubs in the country in making high quality and sought-after titles. The addition of their list complements BookSource's existing stable of sports and activity publishers, like Cicerone, Polaris Publishing, Rucksack Readers and Backpage Press, and the move marks a further strengthening of the Publishing Scotland subsidiary's footprint across the United Kingdom.

G2E titles will be available at BookSource from Tuesday 15 June 2021, having previously been handled by Orca in Dorset.

Talking about the appointment, Dav Bedi, BookSource CEO, said; "We're absolutely thrilled to have G2 Entertainment join us. Working with Jules and his team during the onboarding process has been a joy, and without doubt they, and their list, are a natural fit for BookSource. This partnership is further testament to our standing and reputation in the industry as an efficient and trustworthy distributor, and of course to the BookSource team."

Managing Director of G2 Entertainment, Jules Gammond added: "In the run-up to joining BookSource in June 2021, we had more support meetings and constructive conversations with their team than with all our previous distributors over the past 30 years. Their professionalism and attention to detail is of the highest quality and we really believe that they feel part of our quest to sell as many books as possible to our various customers both within the traditional and specialist book-trade. With BookSource in charge of our logistics and sales processing, we are confident that books will arrive on time without excuses or mistakes."

G2E titles will be available at BookSource from Tuesday 15 June 2021. For further information on how to order G2 Entertainment titles from BookSource please visit www.booksource.net/g2e
