Bradan Press 2023 holiday sale

Last Day of Diciadain nam Miann / Wishing Wednesday sale

Today is the last day of our 10% off sale — you have until midnight Atlantic time tonight, Wednesday, December 6th, to place your order using coupon code MIANN. We’re offering 10% off individual books and Gaelic flags, and free shipping on all orders in our USA and Canadian online shops. (Sale does not include gift cards.)

Use the code MIANN at checkout in our USA and Canadian online stores. After entering the coupon code, please manually select the free shipping option.

For free shipping on Book Boxes, use the code MIANN-BOCSA. Our Book Boxes don’t qualify for the 10% discount since they are already discounted even more, but they do qualify for the free shipping. You can use both of the coupon codes on the same order. After entering the coupon code, you have to manually select the free shipping option.

YES, you can use both coupon codes in the same order!

YES, the coupon codes can be combined with your 20% off coupon for writing an online book review, as long as you send us a screenshot of the review by December 8, 2023! More details here.

YES, if you already placed an order in our U.S. or Canadian online shops in November 2023, we’d be happy to extend this sale to you. Drop us a line to request it!

We’re sorry we can’t offer this sale outside North America, but we encourage you to support both Bradan Press and Gaelic literature by ordering our books from the Gaelic Books Council shop at


Review Bradan Press Books, Get a Discount Coupon

As mentioned above, another way to save is with our offer of leaving a review on amazon for our books and receive 20% off!

If you write an online review of one of our books on Amazon or GoodReads and send us a screenshot, we’ll send you a coupon for 20% off a future book purchase in the Bradan Press online shop (USA or Canada). The review can be as short (or as long!) as you like. Abair bargan! / What a deal!

Did you know that you can write a book review on Amazon even if you didn’t buy the book there? You just need to have an Amazon account and to have spent $50 there in the past 12 months. Here are the details.

We understand that some folks try to avoid Amazon, but unfortunately it’s a necessary evil for a small indie Canadian publisher, especially a Gaelic publisher. However, an Amazon book listing needs at least 10 reviews before Amazon will start suggesting it to users, which helps more readers discover it. After readers discover our books on Amazon though, they may actually decide to order more of our books directly from us or a real bookstore. But that can’t happen if they never hear about our books at all! It’s actually incredibly time-consuming and expensive to spread the word about our indie books. Can you help us out?

If you’re not eligible to write an Amazon review, or prefer not to, please consider writing a book review at Goodreads instead! Here are instructions.

Either way, just send us a screenshot of your review to get a 20% discount coupon good for a book order at the Bradan Press online shop! You can send a screenshot through our Facebook page messages, or drop us a quick line through our Contact page to get the email address where you can send your review. What you say in the book review is entirely up to you and does not affect our offer.

Here are the titles for which we would especially love to see online reviews:
