Friends of the press,
These sure are strange and tough times. We are glad you are all practicing social distancing and hope, in these unprecedented circumstances, you can find some comfort in books.
In light of this, we will be offering a discount on all of our eBook titles for the months of April and May, including our new poetry titles. You can find links on the individual book pages to purchase Kindle, Apple, Kobo, and Nook ebooks.
We have also taken steps to postpone all of our planned launches through April and are following the advice of health professionals proceeding into the future. We are disappointed not to see you in person, but safety must come first. Many of our authors (and even our General Manager on Periscope!) are planning virtual readings, so be on the lookout for that.
Our office is closed at the moment, but we are all checking email, so please reach out at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
If you prefer to hold the paper copies, please considering ordering from this (by no means comprehensive) list of independent bookstores who are making local deliveries:
Toronto: Type Books, Another Story, Bakka Phoenix, Queen Books, and Book City
Ottawa: Perfect Books
Edmonton: Glass Bookshop and Audreys Books
Calgary: Shelf Life Books
Vancouver: Massy Books, Macleod's Books, The Paper Hound, and Pulp Fiction
Victoria: Munro's Books
Frederiction: Westminster Books
We hope you and all your loved ones are staying safe and sane. Read lots, and read often.
The team at NeWest Press—Matt, Claire, Christine, and Isabel
