Publishers host special offers and discounts as Canadians isolate

Coach House Press

In a movement that’s part promotion and part philanthropy, these small publishers from across Canada are helping people cope with the hours of isolation recommended during the COVID-19 pandemic by sharing special offers on their ebook catalogue.

Book*hug Press
The boundary-pushing publisher is offering ebooks — including day/break, the upcoming poetry collection from Governor’s General Literary Award–winning writer Gwen Benaway, and Just Pervs, the Lambda Literary Award–shortlisted story collection from Jess Taylor – for $5, with all proceeds going to the authors.

Coach House Books
All Coach House titles, including André Alexis’s Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize-winning novel Days by Moonlight, are 25 per cent off online for customers using the offer code “STAYHOME.”

House of Anansi Press
For every ebook purchased from House of Anansi, including Canada Reads bestseller Small Game Hunting at the Local Coward Gun Club by Megan Gail Coles, a second ebook will be sent to a reading buddy of your choice so you can have a shared experience despite the social distancing.

Invisible Publishing
The Canadian fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry publisher is offering ebooks for a pay-what-you-choose price.


Signature Editions
Offer: The small literary press is offering readers a free ebook “from cat cozies and mysteries to memoirs and histories to short story collections and sprawling novels.”
