Small Press Selection: The Top 10

July 2001

« Back to Independent Articles

Twice a year, representatives from PMA and the book distribution industry meet to review book submissions from small publishers who do not have formal distribution arrangements in the trade. Based on content, appearance, and salability, titles are chosen to be included in the “Small Press Selection” catalog under the auspices of the Independent Publishers Group (IPG). More than 500 titles have been included in this PMA small press distribution program since its inception in 1992, resulting in the sale of hundreds of thousands of books. Top sellers for the first four months of 2001 are:

1. Birthing From Within: An Extra-Ordinary Guide to Childbirth Preparation by Pam England, C.N.M., M.A., and Rob Horowitz, Ph.D. (Partera Press)
