March 2020: Where to find my books

My children’s book publisher, MacLaren-Cochrane Publishing, alerted me that Amazon will not be ordering or replenishing any non-essential item. This includes books. The physical kind, that is! There are, however, alternative avenues I’ll list below.

First I wanted to say how completely understandable this decision is.

COVID-19 is something we’re all still adjusting to, even if we’re lucky enough not to have the disease or be worried about a friend or family member who does.

We’re worried about balancing work and home life, about still having to go to a physical place of work, about being sequestered in our homes and creating a work space where none existed, about our multi-generational households, about our own fear and stress and the fear and stress we pick up from others.

The small stuff gets magnified and the large stuff can seem insurmountable. We’re not in this alone, but it can feel that way.

Amazon and other such suppliers will hopefully continue to provide items people need that they can’t get anywhere else.

With all that, my publisher is one of the many adjusting to keeping life going, as it were. MacLaren-Cochrane is a small operation. At the date of this post, the owner believes they’ll still be able to drop-ship from the printer as long as the printer continues operations.

If you’d like to order my books to put entertainment, adventures, and learning material in your children’s hands, please check these places if Amazon shows out of stock or there is no ebook option:

All of my children’s books, self-published and traditional

At this time, I have not heard that Black Hare Press, which I contribute adult sci-fi/fantasy stories to, has been similarly affected. You can continue to go to Amazon for those stories (link leads to my Books page).

Thank you for supporting small businesses with all of the everything-else going on! I hope you and yours stay healthy and safe.
