Please sign up to appear on the Read Tuesday Meet-the-Author page



Authors can now sign up to appear on the Read Tuesday author page.

This year, we’ll post the author pictures and information on a Meet the Authors page on the Read Tuesday website. (We might also link these images to Pinterest, but that’s still up in the air. We’ll definitely post them on Read Tuesday.)

In addition to images, you’ll be able to provide a little other information, like a brief description.

After your name, a question asks you to say something short and witty, but really you can write anything (appropriate for a general audience) you want about yourself or your books in this space. Don’t sweat it. πŸ™‚

First complete (at least) one other form to sign up (at least) one of your books, and then you can fill out the form to appear on the author page.


As soon as we have a good number of participants, we’ll begin posting authors on our website.

So the sooner you sign up, the more exposure you’ll get.


The Read Tuesday page was popular.

Readers like to see which authors will be participating.

Other authors like to see who else is participating.

It’s your chance to get Read Tuesday readers and gift-givers interested in you and your books so that when Read Tuesday rolls around, they are looking specifically for your book(s).


Here is the form to sign up to appear on the author page:

Author Sign Up

Authors can participate in Read Tuesday for FREE:


Please support the Read Tuesday Thunderclap. This will help spread awareness on the morning of Read Tuesday (December 9, 2014).

It’s easy to help:

  • Visit
  • Click Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr and sign in.
  • Customize the message. (Optional.)
  • Agree to the terms. All that will happen is that the Thunderclap post about Read Tuesday will go out the morning of December 9.
  • (The warning message simply means that Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr need your permission to post the Thunderclap message on December 9. This is the only post that Thunderclap will make.)


Read Tuesday is a Black Friday type of event just for book lovers. In 2014, it will be held on Tuesday, December 9, 2014.

It’s a great deal for readers and gift-givers.

It’s FREE promotion for authors. We’re promoting the event. You just need to sign up. (Use the forms above.)

We currently have a social media reach of 186,000 (as of Halloweenβ€”we have over a month to greatly increase this figure) for our Read Tuesday Thunderclap campaign to help launch the event. You can help by signing up for the Thunderclap, and you can take advantage of this free exposure just by participating.


Give the gift of reading this holiday season.

  2. Sharing this on Twitter! What a great idea!
    I have a book coming out in January. When can I sign up for that month?

  3. Chris, I am trying to fill in the Create space discount promotion form. When I get to the isbn number, it will not take the number for two of the three books that I am submitting. Checked them about twenty-five times. Any idea how to fix this? The rest of the form is fine.

    • I just double-checked this question on the form, and it should only prevent you from submitting your ISBN if you have more than 13 characters. If you included the hyphen(s), try deleting them. Otherwise, you can send me the info using the Contact Us form on the website and I’ll add it manually.

      Thank you for participating. πŸ™‚
