Brolly Distribution Services

Brolly provides a specialised distribution service for a limited number of titles, selling to the general trade in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and soon the United Kingdom, along with sales through Amazon if required. Brolly is only able to take on titles for distribution that align with its own publications and for which it has access to a market space. Books are sold into bookshops at a wholesale price, not the full recommended retail price as is sometimes thought.

Brolly recommends that any Author/Publisher seeking book distribution be fully aware of the supply-chain process and associated costs. 

Publicity and Promotion costs

Brolly does not generally provide publicity or promotion services nor cover their cost. Brolly's distribution role is to promote and sell the book to retail customers at Brolly's cost, which it does through a range of mechanisms including personal sales visits. For Brolly, the best promotion for a book is for a bookshop to have it on display to its customers. Publicity or promotional efforts directed at the end consumer are however beyond the scope of Brolly's services.
