Recently, an author posted here on this forum that they were giving away free copies of their book. There were a lot of responses - many people wanted the book, but also many people pointed out that Amazon now prohibits self-promotion on this forum. The thread was then removed by Amazon.
If authors (or publishers) want to promote their books (including free giveaways), they can only do so on the Meet the Authors forum. But many readers don't know about that forum, which is why I thought I'd post this message.
If you're looking to find great new authors, check out the forum. You may even find occasional freebie offers.
Here is a link to that forum:
