SAN FRANCISCO, CA – INscribe Digital today announced a new relationship with Dreamspinner Press LLC that enables the independent genre fiction publisher to increase retail distribution and market awareness of the 3,500 backlist titles in its three imprints:
- Dreamspinner Press specializing in gay romance
- Harmony Ink Press devoted to LGBTQ+ teen and new adult fiction
- DSP Publications focusing on quality genre fiction
“We are excited to work with Dreamspinner, because our team loves their content, and we are a proven problem-solver for publishers who want to grow their sales,” said INscribe Digital EVP and General Manager Anne Kubek. “We are pleased to add Dreamspinner’s gay romances to our growing romance list, and confident that our marketing expertise, strong retailer relationships, and flexible title management system will insure that Dreamspinner achieves its goals.”
“As we work on growing our authors’ name recognition and readership in the general fiction market as well as in the gay romance market, INscribe gives us better access to the top retailers than we had on our own, as an independent publisher,” said Dreamspinner Press Executive Director Elizabeth North. “INscribe also offers robust marketing tools that can deliver an immediate impact on our sales, by allowing us to expand our metadata and improve search results, reduce errors in publication listings, and get ready access to our sales numbers.”
“This change to our distribution services has immense potential to increase market awareness of the 50 to 80 products we publish every month across our imprints,” added Dreamspinner Press Editor in Chief Lynn West.
