    Apologies, margdean56! It looks like we neglected to add our vendor rules to your thread. I'm sure you're well versed in this stuff after all this time, but here goes anyway ...

    You're welcome to promote your business and website here in the Writers' Cafe.

    Now that you have an official thread, you'll want to add your listing to our Yellow Pages, found here: https://www.kboards.com/yp/. The listing is free to KB members and is completely self-service; you can add and edit your listing from the page. More information on our Yellow Pages listing can be found here.

    In your thread here, we ask that the same basic rules be followed as we have for authors in the Book Bazaar: you may have this one thread about your service and must post to it rather than start a new thread each time. New threads about the service will be removed. Please bookmark this thread so that you can find it again when you want to post.

    You may not make back-to-back posts to the thread within seven days. If someone responds (as I'm doing with this post), you may reply to them, but otherwise you must wait seven days. Any pattern of posting designed to artificially bump your thread to the top of the forum is prohibited. Please note that very short or (one- or two-word) posts with no meaningful information are discouraged and may be deleted at the moderators' discretion.

    Lastly, your posts and images will need to meet our "forum decorum" guidelines, which is the case for every member.

    You may find that members ask searching questions -- about how your service works, for example, or what they will get for their money, or whether your service adheres to Amazon's terms of service. Such "vetting" is a common here and can be rigorous.

    Note that members are allowed to provide civil and honest feedback about your service in this thread. This feedback may include criticisms as well as kudos. You may respond to criticism in a civil manner, but name-calling, badgering, accusations of lying, and other breaches of forum decorum can lead to loss of vendor posting privileges.

    Any and all disputes between you and your clients should be handled off-site.

    Thanks,
    Becca

    Thanks, Becca! Are you trying to suggest (among other things) that I come up with something a little more robust than "Ping!" every seven days?  :)

    Lol. As the daughter of an old submariner, "ping" is near and dear, but ideally ...  :P

    Okay, observation: A writer writing in English for whom English is not their birth-tongue will sometimes betray this through their use of prepositions -- one of the most arbitrary and idiosyncratic parts of speech in a language. Discuss.

    Also (of course), I can fix that for you.  ;)

    Example: "Reply" as a transitive verb takes "to"; one doesn't just "reply a message", one must "reply to a message". However, as an intransitive verb, it does not take "to." "He spoke to her and she replied."

    Happy Halloween, everyone? And is anyone going to be participating in National Novel-Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) starting tomorrow?

    How big does a "closet" have to be before it's more properly described as a "dressing room"? If a wheelchair can maneuver inside it, how many of you would still call that a "closet"? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Since I'm going to be in transit a week from now and not online, I'll take this opportunity to express my thanks for KBoards and all the varied custom it's brought me.

    Some equipment problems have kept me offline for a bit, but I'm back -- and juggling two jobs at the moment. But my schedule should be clear in a week or two.
