Share Indie Book Launches

We all know that a lot of book launches, book fairs, and plenty of non-book related events have been cancelled because of the current state of affairs we are in.

Because there aren’y many book events happening, I thought I’d give people a chance to share some book launches they know have happened recently, or will be happening soon.

A lot of authors had their book launches cancelled or postponed, so let’s share some book blogger love by sharing some book launches!

Share them in the comments, or find me on social media.
