Singapore (PRWEB) March 10, 2014
Penguin Books Singapore announced Monday the Singapore launch of Partridge — a fast-growing brand powered by Author Solutions, LLC, the industry’s leading provider of supported self-publishing services. Partridge will provide writers in Singapore, Malaysia and throughout the region direct access to a comprehensive range of professional publishing, design, distribution and promotional services.
“We have been studying the Singapore and Malaysian markets for a while and feel now is a great time to launch our supported self-publishing services in the area, in partnership with Penguin Books,” said Andrew Phillips, Author Solutions’ president and CEO.
In February 2013, Penguin Books India, in collaboration with Author Solutions, launched Partridge in India. It was the first partnership between the companies following Penguin’s July 2012 acquisition of the supported self-publishing leader.
“Since Author Solutions joined the Penguin global family, we’ve been focused on their international expansion. After the launch in India last year, Singapore is the next obvious step—given its active and enthusiastic writing community. We are delighted to be working with them in helping authors get started in achieving their publishing goals and in sharing their stories in the region and globally,” said Eddy Teo, managing director of Penguin Books Singapore.
