After 12 years of successful publishing, we are delighted to announce the launch of Ventura Press from 1 August 2015.

The launch of Ventura Press celebrates a new trade sales and distribution partnership with Simon & Schuster Australia, which will ensure the continued growth of our company across Australia and New Zealand.

The first title to be published under Ventura will be Six Degrees by award-winning author Honey Brown, one of Australia’s best contemporary fiction writers.

“This is a wonderful opportunity... to join forces with the trade strength of Simon & Schuster,” said Jane Curry, managing director of Ventura Press. “Ventura will continue to publish our signature brand of strong Australian non-fiction, health, and high-end fiction titles to complement the excellent Simon & Schuster list.”

“The experience that Jane and her team bring coupled with her passion and innovative approach both complements and enhances the values we have here,” he said. “We are looking forward to growing the sales and presence of Jane’s books across Australia New Zealand from 1 August.”
