About Us

Through its division Chattel House Books, the company offers marketing and distribution services to authors and publishers.

Author Marketing is available to provide promotional support with several options available. CHB provides opportunities for publishers through book launches, press releases, social media management, email blasts and much more. We also regularly attend various events where they are opportunities for showcasing our authors directly to potential buyers. We also feature our authors through the social media, our website, mailing lists, video interviews, television, radio, and the newspaper.

CHB uses several local and international channel partners to distribute both print and digital formats of books to the marketplace. We are the region’s premier ebook retail and distribution service.

Our goal is to support local and regional authors and provide them with a one -stop shop for their publishing needs. We can guide new publishers or those who simply don’t have the time or resources, boost sales and reach a growing online reader base quickly and easily with no start-up or hidden fees. Authors can combine any of our services which cover all of their needs including conversion, distribution, promotion and marketing – all of which are designed to be as painless and cost-effective as possible for you.

Other services include:

– Print on Demand Service through Ingram Spark.
– eBook Conversions


Book Source is the exclusive distributor for Scholastic’s Prime Mathematics series.


Bricks ‘n Mortar

In November 2014, Datalore Inc. opened a new retail store called Chattel House Books with the mission of promoting local and regional authors. The store caters to an often neglected niche market through the provision of an easily accessible showcase of local books for its customer base.

Through its doors, customers will find 170 titles by 140 local authors spanning a multitude of genres – Children, Inspirational, Religious, Historical, Political, Sci Fi, Fantasy, Thrillers and more.

Online Stores

Beyond the retail store, Chattel House Books has created online bookstores to increase exposure to books by local and Caribbean authors.
