Title: Rules On Mentioning Books And Websites
Post by: Ghoststorywriter on June 12, 2013, 05:56:13 PM
As I am a new member to these forums, I am unsure about your policy in regard to members mentioning their published books or their website urls. As I do not want to be accused of spamming, I thought it would be best to check with you first.

Welcome to KBoards!  KBoards is a forum for fans and owners of the Amazon Kindle.

We have three major rules for book promotion: 

1. Self promotion may only be done in the Book Bazaar (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,42.0.html).  This means that you may not mention your book in other forums, even in passing or even in response to a request for recommendations.  You are welcome to post throughout our forum, discussing books you've read, movies you've seen, your favorite tea, as appropriate to the subforum you're in, just leave your books in your signature.

2. You may have one thread per book in the Book Bazaar and must reply to it rather than start a new thread if you have new information.  So please, bookmark your thread so you can find it again.  New threads will be removed without comment.

Once you've created a book thread, we'll place a "Welcome Letter" in your thread.  Please be sure to read the Welcome Letter, as it contains much useful information for you as a new member.  The Welcome Letter is placed in all book threads, by the way, whether you are a new member or not, for your information and for our convenience. :) 

3. You may only make back-to-back posts in your book thread once every seven days.  If someone replies, you may respond, but if yours is the last post in the thread, you must wait seven days.  You may modify your existing posts at any time.  (By the way, please do not create a second account to artificially bump your thread as this is grounds for banning.) 

Be sure to check out the "Tips for Authors" at the top of the Writers' Café (http://www.kboards.com/index.php/board,60.0.html).  Thanks for being part of KBoards.  Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
