Heartwood to move to BookSource ahead of GBS closure.

Glasgow-based distributor BookSource has announced that travel specialist Heartwood Publishing has appointed BookSource as their distributor.


Andy Riddle, Managing Director of Heartwood Publishing, commented: “We are impressed with the approachable team at BookSource, and I know they will ensure a seamless transition as we make this move later this year. The directors' enthusiasm at BookSource, their experience in book distribution, and their passion for the service they provide made the decision process simple. I know our list is in safe hands. I’d like to thank the team at GBS for their care over the years and wish them the best for the future.”


BookSource is one of Britain’s leading independent book distributors, supplying books throughout the UK and the rest of the world. BookSource’s Managing Director, Davinder Bedi, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Heartwood to the BookSource family, and I look forward to strengthening our relationship further. Moving distributors is not an easy decision for any publisher, however, I am delighted that we have demonstrated that the BookSource team is focused on delivering an unrivalled distribution service. Our mission has always been to help publishers do business, and we will continue to do that.”

Andy Riddle confirmed that Heartwood is working with GBS and BookSource to ensure minimal disruption to services, and customers should continue to place orders with GBS until 30th September 2024, with further information being released in due course.
