Getting your book on our shelves

Today Arlee Bird, the man who is famous for creating the A to Z Challenge April Blogfest, probably the biggest blogfest on the Internet, is featuring Celery Tree on his blog, Tossing It Out.

Los Angeles area, California, United States
"A juggler of words and phrases. My main blog is Tossing It Out. The focus blog for the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge can now be found at where updates will be posted until the event in April begins. Wrote By Rote is about memoir writing. A Few Words is my Sunday contemplation blog. A Faraway View is about dreams. Pick what you like or look at them all. I love blogging!"
His guest is the lovely Karen Walker, memoir writer and author of Following the Whispers. Again, I'm turning off the comment feature here in hopes you will go right to Tossing It Out and leave comments for Arlee and Karen there rather than here.

 And just a note for those who have joined as Author Members: Be sure to submit your book! It only takes 24 hours for your book to be approved for sale on the site, and for your author profile page to then be activated. We look forward to seeing your book on our shelves!
