Renegade Arts Entertainment is pleased to announce a new partnership with Bedside Press
Under this new agreement, Renegade Arts Entertainment will represent Bedside Press for book trade distribution through their existing partners: Publishers Group Canada (Canada - PGC is part of Raincoast Books), Turnaround UK (Europe) and Diamond Comic Distribution (Direct Market) beginning January 1, 2018 and additional distributors as they are added. Effectively, Bedside Press will become a Renegade imprint while remaining editorially independent and under the ownership of Hope Nicholson.
Renegade Arts Entertainment is a Canadian publisher based in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. Focusing on comics, graphic novels, illustrated children's books and audiobooks, Renegade’s stories are in diverse genres from diverse voices.
Bedside Press is a Canadian publisher, based in Winnipeg, and known as a publisher of graphic novel and prose projects including the best-selling The Secret Loves of Geek Girls.
Hope Nicholson, owner of Bedside Press: “I’m very excited that Renegade is taking this chance on us. As a small publisher, distribution to bookstores and libraries is essential, and I’m glad that we are able to reach the audience for our books worldwide! Prairie publishers supporting each other is very important to me, and I’m looking forward to what the next few years brings. Renegade has a reputation for excellence and I couldn’t be more pleased with this opportunity.”
Alexander Finbow, EIC at Renegade: “Bedside Press has published impressive and important books, often taking a chance on titles that other publishers are too risk adverse to champion. Hope is committed to finding more great stories, and I am really happy to welcome her to the Renegade publishing family to help make Bedside’s books available to more readers.”
