I am very impressed by all of you - you had the determination and the dream to write a book and you had the tenacity to see your book published. That is indeed a fine accomplishment!
However, I feel that it is important to me as a reader to remind you of the rules and expectations that Amazon has given to authors. This forum is for readers to share the books they have read and to discuss these books. Therefore, I have provided you with a reminder and links to explain what the policies are about self promotion of books.
Self promotion is not permitted by Amazon, except in the Meet Our Authors forum.
A) Read the posting policy of what is and is not allowed
B) Read Amazon's post (that appeared on all forums earlier this year) that specifically says they are cracking down on shameless self promotions
C) Visit the Meet Our Authors forum to self promote or learn about other authors books.
I know that there are authors who are readers as well and they enjoy posting the books they are currently reading and enjoying and that is great. As a reader, I love hearing from all of you. But I do not enjoy entire threads which are ruined by constant self promotion. This does not encourage dialogue and for this reader, it does not encourage me to buy your books. I simply find it infinitely tiresome.
