Meet the Authors #ReadTuesday (a Black Friday type of event just for #Books)



Here is your chance to meet some of the authors who have already pre-registered for Read Tuesday—it’s like a Black Friday just for books on December 9, 2014. (Mark your calendar.)

This new page on the Read Tuesday website features Read Tuesday authors, including photos and brief descriptions. (This year, it isn’t a Pinterest page, although we might make one of those, too, as it looked nice last year.)

Want to learn more about any of the authors? Click on the link to visit the author’s site.

Authors: Please check your info. If the photo is missing, it’s probably because the link needs to end with .png or .jpeg. Leave a comment or use the Contact Us option and we can try to find a solution. If you’d like to make any changes (e.g. if the “witty” remark question didn’t come out right), let us know.

If you’re an author who isn’t on this page, you can participate in Read Tuesday. It’s free. See below. (Note that the meet-the-author page will be updated once a week or so.)


Authors can participate in Read Tuesday for FREE:

Submission is easy and should go smoothly—you just fill out a Google Docs form. However, if you encounter any issues, have questions, receive an error message, or see a symptom that might suggest that your information didn’t save, please use the Contact Us form on the Read Tuesday website.


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.)

Other ways to support the event include clicking the Follow button on the Read Tuesday website or through Twitter or Facebook.


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.)


Give the gift of reading this holiday season.

  1. Reblogged this on Crystin Goodwin and commented:
    I know it’s a little late – but check me out on the Meet the Authors page of Read Tuesday! Of course, my comments sounded a little on the random side …
    All I have to say is it sounded funnier with the questions included. =P
