SCB Distribution

Books distributed by SCB are available at most chain and independent bookstores, as well as all major wholesalers. Booksellers, please contact us for discount, returns and payments policies at 800-729-6423.


In 20 years, SCB has grown from distributing one book into a multi-million dollar business offering 4,000 titles from 160 publishers.


By astutely managing our growth and choosing a compelling variety of publishers we enjoy working with, SCB has developed a solid industry reputation for great service, integrity and sustained success.



Personal Responsibility

SCB is family-built and privately-owned, and we've invested our reputations in the quality of services we offer the publishing industry. We prize our independence from political affiliations, governing boards and bureaucracy.


Further, the SCB offices are located in the SCB warehouses so we have a constant overview of operations.


Direct Communication

SCB places the highest value on an equitable publisher-distributor partnership, and we take pride in our responsiveness to all our publishers. At SCB there's no 'voice jail' and no bureaucracy because of our interactive management system.



Thoughtful Choices

We carefully choose our publishers to complement our SCB list and to maximize each publisher's strengths. Other distributors increase their lists by continuously adding small presses in a process of unchecked growth. Of course, those presses soon find they're unable to develop a true working relationship with the distributor.



Book Fairs

SCB takes booths at the world's major book sales shows and rights markets: Frankfurt Book Fair, London Book Fair and Book Expo America, as well as at the library and other shows; and is represented at all regional book fairs in North America.



Location, Location Location!

SCB's home base of Los Angeles is the #1 book market in America. An always-surprising fact is that Southern California book sales are consistently ahead of those in NYC and San Francisco. As the only major book distributor in the area, SCB has important professional and personal connections in this dynamic region.


SCB's 20,000 square-foot warehouses and offices are in Gardena, near downtown LA, the 110 Freeway and minutes from LAX and Long Beach-the largest ports of entry for books printed throughout the world.
