Verso Books and Random House Publisher Services have agreed to partner, beginning July 1, 2013. RHPS will provide exclusive sales and distribution across all print and digital formats in North America for Verso's 80 titles per year.

“Verso Books has worked with W.W. Norton in the U.S. and Penguin Group in Canada since 1996. Our wonderful colleagues there have helped Verso immeasurably over the years, improving our American operation and growing our sales year on year,” says Jacob Stevens, Verso Books managing director. “We look forward with great excitement to the partnership with RHPS, whose dynamic and engaged sales team, backed by a world-class distribution network, will bring our books to yet more readers.”
