Independent Publisher of the Year Winners

We are thrilled to announce that Head of Zeus was named Independent Publisher of the Year at last night's British Book Awards, hosted by Lauren Laverne.

The judges said Head of Zeus 'is a perfect example of long tail publishing - spotting the value in unknown authors and undiscovered backlist. From start-up to profitable multi-million pound business in just four years, Head of Zeus is one of the brightest stars of trade publishing - a textbook example of using e-books to get traction. But what most impressed the judges was how it has pivoted from a digital-focused list to a true hybrid. E-books still outnumber print titles on its list by three to one, but Head of Zeus is enjoying steep print growth through the TCM.'

The award for Independent Publisher of the Year is sponsored by the Firsty Group. The award ceremony was held in London.
