Monday begins the Big Blog Tour for Celery Tree, the website I've been involved with for over a year. I really believe in this project, and am excited about sharing it with other writers and those who love books.
Celerytree.com came about because I know how hard it is to market and sell books. One day in 2010, this idea came to me: Why not build a website where authors support one another by agreeing to buy a modest amount of books from other authors each year.
If enough people join up, it can grow geometrically and make a real difference. 100 members buying 6 books a year is 600 books purchased from those 100 members. 1000 members buying 6 books a year is 6000 books purchased from 1000 members. 10,000 members is 60,000 books purchased from 10,000 members. You get the idea, right?
The more members we get the more books our members will sell, yet each member only has to ever buy 6 books a year, although most will buy more than 6. The more members sign on, the larger the pool of books and book buyers will be.
Some fantastic people are helping me get the word out. I am grateful and humbled by the response. The event involves a dozen bloggers over the next three weeks, beginning Jan. 9 and ending Jan. 27.
I'll be posting information daily, including the links to who is guest posting and where. Meanwhile, you can follow the Celery Tree blog for up to date information about the website. Thank you!
You can go here to get the Celery Tree button for your sidebar to help promote. Yes, thank you!
And follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook. Thank you again!
