Starting this month I am going to be celebrating some of the incredible independent publishers and small presses out there, putting incredible books out into the world, and hopefully onto your bookshelves.
2020 has been a particularly terrible year for lots of reasons – I don’t think I need to name them, but for small businesses like these, it’s been a disaster. With no festivals, bookshops closed and no in person events, it’s had a dramatic effect on book sales for small presses.
So, as Christmas approaches, buy books, but not from that website named after a river in South America, instead buy direct from the publishers or order through your local independent bookshop – most of them are online.
And please do join in celebrating indie publishers with me, share the posts, sign up for their newsletters, and buy, buy, buy their books. Or you’ll be missing out!
