  • NEW: Marketing and Promotion for Writers
    Before posting in this marketing forum, please try to read 10 Step Plan to Promote Your Book: Online Book Marketing on Any Budget. This forum is mainly for followup questions and discussion after reading that book. This forum does indeed allow for much broader discussion of marketing and promotion than just that book, but it's good for everyone to be on the same page about the basics.

    Please note, this forum is not for self-promotional plugs. It's for discussing how to promote your book or other writing.

  • International Grammar
    Some grammar rules (and embarrassing mistakes!) transcend the uniqueness of different regions and style guides. This new International Grammar section by ultimately identifies those rules thus providing a simple, flexible rule-set, respecting the differences between regions and style guides. You can feel free to ask general questions about spelling and grammar. You can also provide example sentences for other members to proofread and inform you of any grammar mistakes.

  • Private Review Team Forum
    This is a forum for official communication between the review team. The review team is a group of volunteers who get free books/ebooks in return for honestly reviewing the books. This creates a win-win-win situation: Independent authors have a way to get the word out about their allegedly good books; reviewers get free books; and the forum is free from spam. If you are an author or publisher, please click here to request a review. If you are a reader interested in honestly reviewing books in return for free copies, click here to join this group.

    (Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
    Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

    For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

    If you have a question or problem regarding the review team system, whether as author or a reviewer, please use the private contact forum.
