Fresh off announcing its new light novel imprint, Airship, Seven Seas Entertainment is getting a boost in the distribution department. The publisher is teaming up with Penguin Random House for a new worldwide sales and distribution agreement, which will have Penguin selling and distributing the full frontlist and backlist across worldwide sales channels starting July 1, 2021.
Here’s what Seven Seas publisher Jason DeAngelis had to say about the move:
“The growth of Seven Seas and the growth of the manga industry have been meteoric … We are thrilled to partner with PRHPS as the next stage in our growth, and with their support, look forward to bringing our ever-expanding catalog to an even broader audience.”
And a word from Penguin Random House Publisher Services President Jeff Abraham:
“Jason and the entire Seven Seas team have done a remarkable job of discovering unique manga properties with incredible potential and publishing and marketing them successfully. We’ve all been admirers of the program for years and we are invigorated to bring the full complement of PRHPS and Penguin Random House resources to bring their books to even more readers throughout the world.”
