The spread of COVID-19 and the related constraints of travel and gathering are challenging for everyone. In the literary world, many independent bookstores have closed for the foreseeable future, which impacts Three Rooms Press and its authors in several ways. However, 3RP has always been about building community through literature. With your support, we’ll continue to do this.
Three Rooms Press has three fabulous new books coming out this spring and we’re currently unsure if scheduled events for April, May, and June will go on as planned. Some may become FUN virtual events, which we hope will keep everyone from going nuts as they isolate. As we find out new information, we’ll continue to update our EVENTS page.
Meanwhile, our print books and e-books are available via online shopping at nearly all bookstores, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and your favorite indie bookstore via IndieBound. Many indie bookstores are working hard to provide online services, often with free shipping. In addition, a new website, Bookshop.org is handling online sales and donating part of each sale to a fund specifically to help indie bookstores.
Of course, indie publishers need help too! Print books of our entire catalog are also available DIRECTLY through our own 3RP online store. Pick a few titles and we’ll ship immediately. If you’re interested in purchasing our entire collection, need a review copy, or need more information on anything, please send us a note (and a virtual hug) via email@example.com<.
Also, sign up for our mailing list simply by entering your email address at the top left of this page or entering your info on the pop up. You’ll receive news about new books, interviews with authors, events details—virtual and in-person—and other fun stuff. We send 2-3 emails at most per month, and we don’t share your info with anyone.
Thanks for your ongoing support during these challenging times.
