Counting Down...Three...

Have you checked out Celery Tree yet? Have you bought a book from an author on Celery Tree? It's so easy! You just click on the book you want, the site will ask you to register, the author gets a message that you have ordered and she (or her publisher or distributor) mails the book to you. And a few days later, you get a new book in your mail box!

That's shopping. Now if you are an author with a book to sell, you will want to join as an Author Member. Then you submit your book for approval (no biggie, about a 24- hour turnaround) and your book will be available for sale on!

Meanwhile, as you're pondering all that, click over to Following the Whispers, where Karen Walker will tell you a little more about the culture behind Celery Tree.


  1. Hi Karen, I remember you talked about this a couple years ago. Glad to see its up and running! I'll tweet the link and check out the authors and their books. Its a great idea! I'll even do a linkback on an upcoming post and place it on my side bar of my blog.
