KiCam Teams with Bookmasters for Nationwide Distribution, Sales
KiCam Projects has signed an agreement with Bookmasters, Inc., for nationwide sales and distribution of its trade books.
The partnership will provide greater exposure and reach for KiCam’s authors, helping to spread their messages to more retailers and consumers.
“This is an exciting step for us as we continue to grow and try to change the world, one great story at a time,” says Lori Highlander, president and founder of KiCam. “Our goal is to provide a larger platform for our authors to touch more lives with their powerful stories.”
KiCam focuses on publishing true stories of survival and recovery, whether from illness, addiction, tragedy, or other challenges. KiCam also offers its authors and collaborators the opportunity to designate a portion of the proceeds from their projects to be donated to a nonprofit organization.
Founded in 2015, KiCam published three books in 2016 and released the illustrated children’s book A Corner of Heaven on Jan. 17. Eight more books are slated for 2017 publication.
Bookmasters, based in Ashland, Ohio, is one of the largest providers of integrated publisher services in the United States. For more than 40 years, Bookmasters has offered services to publishers and authors such as book manufacturing, print sales and distribution, warehousing and fulfillment, eBook sales and distribution, and editorial and design services.
Bookmasters is owned by Follett Corporation and is a strategic partner with Baker & Taylor, premier worldwide distributor of books, digital content, and entertainment products. Bookmasters’ sales team works directly with large wholesalers, retailers, and online sellers and has deep reach into the Christian and specialty markets, as well.
“Greater exposure is key to the success of any book, and working with Bookmasters will enable our authors to reach more readers,” Highlander says. “The mark of KiCam’s success is how well we serve our authors, so we’re delighted to be making this leap forward.”
