Trafford publishing sold to US firm

Many of you will be interested to note that Trafford Publishing has been sold to an American company. Trafford, which is based in Colwood is this country’s most prominent self-publishing company. You can read all of the details in this Times-Colonist article but I will excerpt an interesting passage.

As a result, Reid (CEO Geoff Reid) said the 23 jobs involved in the self-publishing side of the business will be transferred to the printing side of the business.

“We don’t see any of those jobs disappearing, in fact we see we will be going into a growth pattern now,” he said. Reid suggested there could be as many as 20 new employees eventually added to the existing roster of 85.

In related news, book-sales are down in the US and in the UK but not in Canada as Canadian readers are buying more books than ever before.
