That’s less scary than it sounds. Probably.
Celery Tree is now open! If you've been blog hopping recently, chances are you've already heard this news, but you may be asking---why Celery Tree? We've got Amazon, Goodreads, etc., etc.
Well, the cool thing about Celery Tree is that it's a more intimate alternative that showcases independent authors who often get lost in the fray at the mammoth-sized sites. In other words, Celery Tree aims to be the internet's answer to a small, cozy bookstore.
In the spirit of community, all the site's authors have agreed to purchase at least six titles from the Celery Tree collection throughout the year. As you know from the supportive blogging community, it's something a lot of us are doing anyhow, and ensures that Celery Tree will be an encouraging, friendly e-neighborhood---a welcoming place to hang out, which is exactly why I decided to join.
From the Celery Tree Blog :
The book world needs a vehicle to help overlooked but talented authors get discovered. The real judge of a book's worth should be made by the readers, not by the marketing dollars behind it. But how can readers find those books that don't have the big bucks behind them?
Authors helping authors, in an environment of books, blogs and reader reviews--similar to Goodreads but without the annoying side ads. The only ads on Celery Tree will consist of our members' book covers posted in strategic locations.
