The American Booksellers Association is tracking information on publisher offers and support as part of their COVID-19 bookseller support information.
Edelweiss has created a hub page of special offers from publishers, including offers specifically for bookstores facing the challenge of closures and interrupted sales. There are dozens of offers listed, from Arcadia to Wiley Press.
Macmillan has posted their first-ever virtual event grids to Edelweiss, as well as an offer to share some digital marketing tips for successful virtual/live streaming events. Email Melissa.Campion@macmillan.com for more info or start requesting authors now--they're sharing requests with publicists daily, as they come in. Here are the links to them:
