G2 has secured a deal to distribute all of Apex Publishing's new paperback and Ebooks around the world.
Amongst the first batch of titles are biographies of former West Ham manager John Lyall and risqué entertainer Larry Grayson; a history of the popular On The Buses television series; and quiz books on the Carry On film series, Elvis Presley and a number of top Premier League football clubs.
The company is run by charismatic entrepreneur Chris Cowlin. Born in London in 1980, Chris has achieved a great deal in a short space of time. Not only does he own a successful publishing company, he is himself a bestselling author having had number one best-sellers with Amazon, WHSmith and Waterstone’s. To date, he has written 138 books and, in October 2014, he was named the world record holder for ‘Most Quiz Books Published By A Single Author’ by RecordSetter.
Chris has written on a range of subjects but specialises in football, sport, television, music and pop stars. He has written official quiz books on many football clubs including Aston Villa, Birmingham City, Burnley, Coventry City, Heart of Midlothian, Hull City, Ipswich Town, Norwich City, Queens Park Rangers, Watford and West Bromwich Albion to name but a few. A lifelong Tottenham Hotspur fan and season ticket holder, he has written several books about his favourite football club.
In addition, Chris works as an actor, model and voice over artist. He has been involved in over 300 productions and appeared in many of the major UK soaps, playing a CID officer in EastEnders, a school governor in Coronation Street and an estate agent in Hollyoaks. Chris has also appeared in several high profile films including The Theory of Everything, Diana, The Imitation Game and The Sweeney. His personal highlight remains being pushed by Daniel Craig in the London Underground scene in the 2012 James Bond film, Skyfall.
When he gets time in his busy schedule, Chris enjoys helping out in local community events and is a former local councillor, elected in March 2012 after beating both the Conservative Party and the Labour Party. He was also a very active school governor between 2010 and 2012. Chris lives in Essex and has two children, Harry and Aimee.
His next challenge is to visit all 92 league clubs in April and run around each pitch to help raise £1500 for the Willow Foundation charity. More details can be found on his web-site: www.chriscowlin.co.uk
