NEW YORK, Aug. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- David Roberts, President of Houston, Texas area based Defiance Press & Publishing, LLC, announced that Defiance Press has signed a multi-year deal contract with Midpoint Trade Books, Inc., a national sales and distribution company based in New York, Nashville and Kansas City.
Mr. Roberts states: "I am very excited about the new opportunities opening up for Defiance through Midpoint's nationally recognized sales and distribution services that it offers to a select group of U.S. and international publishing companies." Roberts continues, "This is a real game-changer for our current and future authors. We want to create a level planning field for our titles in a very competitive world. Without a strong foundation in sales and distribution, it is very difficult to get the kind of attention necessary to publish successfully."
"Defiance Press is a niche publisher focusing on conservative and libertarian viewpoints through works of non-fiction and fiction, including childrens' books through our Bluebonnet Kids imprint. It is my strong conviction that our authors will now have opportunities for success often available only to writers signed by the largest publishing houses. I look forward to our authors reaching a greatly expanded audience for their works."
Eric Kampmann, CEO of Midpoint, concurs: "David Roberts has the kind of entrepreneurial drive that will find a welcome home at Midpoint. Since my days as Vice President of Sales at Simon & Schuster, I have worked hard to help publishers and authors reach their full potential in the marketplace. Publishing is a complex and often difficult business, but Midpoint has spent years building a first rate infrastructure that supports publishers every step of the way. We believe David and Defiance Press has what it takes to publish successfully. We look forward to working together with him for years to come."
Defiance Press and Publishing, LLC is a traditional publisher of fiction and non-fiction. Defiance is located in Conroe, Texas, a suburb of Houston. Defiance Press' notable titles include "Patriots of Treason," "A State of Treason," Ruby's Prayer," "Fall of the Western Empire" and "Unemployable." Defiance also publishes children books under its Bluebonnet Kids imprint.
