First off, thank you to everyone for your support during this lockdown period. It’s a scary time for everyone, and it means a lot to us that readers are ordering Tramp Press titles through our website, or from heroic booksellers, to support us and our authors.
We want to update you on all things Tramp, so let’s dive in:
You can order from our shop and we will post your books as quickly as possible. Check out our special offer for the month of May: we’re selling Sara Baume’s Spill Simmer Falter Wither and A Line Made by Walking for just a fiver each to celebrate the publication of her bestselling non-fiction debut handiwork. Please note, however, that it depends on our getting access to the post office, so it could take a few days longer than it used to.
You can also order from the wonderful people at Kenny’s Bookshop in Galway (free! shipping!). You’ll have seen on twitter that Bob at the Gutter Bookshop is picking and packing online orders all day and all night. Books Upstairs is open for business and taking orders over email. You can find them on Twitter and Instagram. You can also check out Eason, Charlie Byrne’s and Dubray, Waterstones, or your own local bookseller if they’re online. This is the time to support independent booksellers if you can.
Unsurprisingly, all events are cancelled or postponed until further notice. When our authors participate in any online event, we’ll post about it on social media (twitter, Facebook, Instagram). Our next publication, A Ghost in the Throat by Doireann Ní Ghríofa, is scheduled for late August. Stay tuned to our social media channels for more. In the meantime, you can preorder Doireann’s incredible prose debut here.
We are still open for submissions and Sarah continues to read everything that comes in! Please note: we are always on the look-out for great new writing, and the easiest way to get it to us is to follow the submission guidelines.
