These are strange times indeed, and booksellers as well as publishers are feeling the pinch of (the absolutely necessary) lockdowns to prevent Covid-19 from overwhelming our society. Please, please, please: support your indie bookstore by placing an order with them. Many indies in Canada now have easy online ordering, and many more will fulfill your order over the phone and provide free or cheap delivery, or contactless pickup.
It’s also a strange time to publish any new books. I myself have bumped both my spring titles – Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, and Ford Madox Ford’s The Good Soldier – to June 2020. In the meantime, during this business slowdown, would you be interested in preordering one or both of these titles? While that means paying now and receiving delivery later, it does help keep the machine running here.
To thank you for preordering, I will add a free TBR tote bag to any preorder placed between now and Sunday, May 17 (or while tote quantities last)! One bag per order. I’m also offering $5 flat rate shipping anywhere in Canada and the US.
If you are currently out of work or trying to make ends meet due to closures or reduced income, and feel that you cannot take advantage of this offer, simply reach out to me and we can work something out. We are all in this together.
And, thank you so much. Stay safe!
