Apply for Distribution

Our focus as a distributor

We are looking to take on established and emerging Australian and International publishers who wish to expand their reach in the Australian market. We distribute titles for all ages and pride ourselves on offering a variety of independent titles.

At this time we are not interested in applications from publishers with only a single-title and/or no further titles planned or in production.

If you publish regularly (more than four titles per year), produce quality books and want to get your titles in the hands of more readers please take the following steps to enquire about distribution:

1. Download the application form here. If you would like to send the form in advance of any samples, please email it to 

2. Please post sample copies of your book/s (this could be a galley proof or advance copy if it has not yet been published), with your completed form to the below address. Please note that we are unable to return any samples or proofs submitted:  

Attn: Distribution enquiry
Novella Distribution
Unit 3/5 Currumbin Court
Capalaba QLD 4157

Due to COVID-19 there are delays in receiving sample copies and assessing applications. We appreciate your patience at this time.

3. Once we receive your form and book/s, we will assess your application and respond to you.


What is distribution?

As a distributor we wholesale to large online retailers, retail bookstores (both independent and chain stores), and educational and library suppliers. Our list of titles available to order allows us to form relationships with these key stakeholders. 

When should I apply for distribution? 

If this is your first title, or if you have titles releasing soon, don't wait until your book is released. The best time to apply for distribution is as soon as you have the publication information ready (ie. title, description, pricing, cover jacket). We submit data to our key partners three months ahead of publication, so it is best to apply well in advance of release.
