Macmillan announced that it has signed publishing start-up Page Street Publishing in Essex, Mass., to its roster of sales and distribution clients, which includes Rodale and Bloomsbury USA. Macmillan will handle print and e-book distribution worldwide, except for Canada, where Canadian Manda Group will handle sales and Jaguar Book Group distribution.

“We are thrilled to add Page Street Publishing to our client roster,” says Alison Lazarus, president of Macmillan’s sales division. “[Founder] Will Kiester brings a great track record to his new company, and he is a savvy market-driven publisher. We are proud to have been chosen to start this venture with him and look forward to helping Page Street Publishing grow and prosper.”

Page Street Publishing plans to publish 20 full-color how-to books a year. It will launch its first list in spring 2013.
