Help us help authors and indie bookstores!

The Authors Guild would love your help on a special project to support authors with recent and forthcoming books. Canceled book tours and retail closures have thrown a wrench into everyone’s plans, but thankfully, the literary community can still connect online to find out what to read next.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Make a short video to spotlight three books you’re personally excited about
  • Post it to your social media
  • Important: Tag @authorsguild in your post and use hashtag #supportauthors
  • Or send us your Youtube video link and we will add it to our playlist

We also want to show support for small businesses. Feel free to tag your favorite indie bookstores, use the hashtag #SupportIndies, or link to IndieBound.org or BookShop.org.

For an exponentially bigger impact, you can encourage other authors to do the same thing.

Here are a few authors who have participated so far:


For even more recommendations from your favorite authors check out our Instagram highlight “#supportauthors” or our Youtube playlist.


We'd love for you to join us in supporting authors and indie bookstores. Now is a great time for people to curl up with books, and we want to make sure that new releases don’t go unseen!
