Publisher Testimonials

"Any success we enjoy as a publisher is a direct result of our relationship with Consortium. They've worked to find readers for our books—and have done so with passion, flair, and unshakeable commitment to literature."  

Joseph Bednarik, Copper Canyon Press

"They have been tremendously supportive and it’s a great fit. It has served us well to be a part of a group of independents.”

Claudia Bedrick, Enchanted Lion Books 

"We had the good fortune to join Consortium the year we first published Tony Kushner's Angels in America, and they have been an extraordinary partner ever since. They are the only independent distributor we would trust with our books."

Terry Nemeth, Theatre Communications Group

"Consortium is the place for smart, cutting-edge, out-of-the-mainstream publishers. Publishers know that they and their list will be treated with care and attention by folks whose mission is aligned with their own."

Elaine Katzenberger, City Lights Publishers

"The Consortium community feels like a family and not simply a distribution apparatus. Consortium provides a valuable service, which goes way beyond what anyone who isn’t part of this family could ever imagine a distributor to be."

Johnny, Johanna, Ibrahim and Aaron, Akashic Books

"It's been over a decade that we've been with Consortium and we've never looked back. The CBSD team has become part of our team. Without exception, everyone at Consortium is always there for us, keeping us on track with deadlines, offering professional advice on packaging, getting out books where they need to be in a timely manner, liaising with retailers and wholesalers either directly or through the reps, and much more. Because we have been with Consortium our company is sharper, more professional, and most importantly, successful. We are grateful!"

Judith Plant, New Society Publishers
