New Releases: “Lily Darling” & “A Little of Me, A Little of you: Spoken Word Choir Book” struggle to find an audience

COVID 19 has economically impacted the book industry. Thousands of authors cancelled book tours and have book stock which that cannot sell hand-to-hand. “I autographed and sold only one book since March 13, 2020,” Meredith Coleman McGee said. So far, McGee cancelled three book events slated for March and April.

With the closure of non-essential businesses including libraries across the nation, authors are struggling to introduce theirs works to the public. Like established authors, the authors of new book releases do not have access to public venues.
