Coach House Books & ECW Press join forces for the Indie Love-In Sale!

Two of Canada's finest independent presses jump on the merger bandwagon ... sort of.

Random House and Penguin decided to make their union official. HarperCollins and Simon and Schuster have been talking about tying the knot, too. Why should the multinational publishers hog the society pages? Canadian indies have been sharing the love for a long time, though living in sin (which is just how we like it). So this December, two of Canada's most acclaimed indie presses are making things a (little) bit more official.

As a declaration of Coach House and ECW's undying love, we're holding our Indie Love-In Sale! This is a cross-publisher sale where readers can buy books from each indie Canadian press and save with a sweet package deal. You get to play matchmaker in our inter-house romance: pick one Coach House title and one ECW title, and get the two books for the low price of $28

For our Indie Love-In Sale, we’re offering up a bevy of our recent titles and long-time favourites. Don't you think they'd make adorable couples?
