Book Launches and Events

If you or your university/organization plan to hold a book launch, we can provide sales and marketing support.

What we can do:


  • We can ship books to you or the venue (on a sale or return basis), or liaise with a local bookseller.
  • We can provide a promotional code that allows attendees to purchase your book directly from us at a discount.
  • We can supply a discount flyer to hand out to attendees for later purchase.
  • We can help promote your event on social media.
  • If the event is held in London (where we are based), we might be able to come and set up a stand to sell books.
  • If the event is outside of London, speak to your editor about their possible attendance.

What we can’t do:


  • We can’t pay for author book tours.
  • We can’t pay for event advertising.
  • All orders must be paid for in advance. You can however return unsold books.


Note: We need a minimum of one month’s notice in order to adequately handle event book requests. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us:
