AWP 2020 in Texas is hurting bad; authors and publishers are cancelling due to the rapid spread of COVID-19. For the many attendees that look forward to the Book Fair every year, we feel you.
All writers and lovers of books are hoarders of books. It's a fact. To know that many publishers will not be there is a total bummer.
We just couldn't let a virus get in the way of celebrating books from small presses and hard-working authors, so we are having a massive online book sale starting right now. You can find all of our books on sale (many are $5 off the regular list price) in our bookshop. Remember, shipping and taxes are included so this is a serious deal. All readers who purchase a book through our website during the sale will receive a promo code to download a free ebook from Smashwords (the book of your choice).
Promotions for ebooks have been activated through our distributor. You can find all of our books at Smashwords (and related partners) for 75% off. Some are even free. Because we love you. These discounts go from March 1-7.
All ebooks distributed on Amazon will either be free or range from 25-85% off and go from 3/4 through 3/8.
If you would like to support independent bookstores, we recommend that you head over to Indiebound and look for the book you want to purchase. We can't guarantee that all independent retailers will honor the sales prices, but we support your choice to buy a book from a non-Amazon entity. Of course, we guarantee that our print editions will be for sale through our site for the entirety of the AWP conference.
Thank you for your dedication to the burgeoning small press industry.
