Game Over Books Author Fund

Hey Game Over fans,

It’s been quite the year, hasn’t it? Due to the current COVID-19 crisis many industries are suffering immensely, but freelance artists in particular are struggling under the weight of all this uncertainty. As of right now, all of our authors have had shows and tours cancelled for the coming spring and summer which means hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars worth of individual income for the year--income they need to cover basic necessities like rent, groceries, and utilities. All together our authors and the press have lost out on roughly 50 different events including university shows, festival features, vendor exhibits, and bookstore shows.

The COVID-19 crisis is also affecting our upcoming author releases. Our current printer, based in Ohio, is under necessary staffing restrictions and can no longer guarantee printing and shipping dates. This means we won't be able to adhere to our original release plans for the next three books as well as the I Wish I Wasn’t Royalty project. We are still working diligently on each release, and plan to open pre-order links in the coming months, but the inability to do full book tours and set definitive release dates will affect sales for some time.

Like many other freelance artists, this is causing a lot of distress for our authors and our crew. All this to say, we can use some help from our friends and fans.

We are seeking donations to help our authors recoup lost income from events and sales opportunities. We want to help support their basic needs during this crisis however we can. We know there are many people, causes, and businesses out there that need support, so we appreciate any donation, no matter the size. We also appreciate folks spreading the word if possible. We are truly grateful to all of you who continue to support our authors and our press.

Thank you so much everyone and please stay well!

The Game Over Books Team
