Strict Anti-Spam Rules: Important for authors and publishers

(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.

IMPORTANT: The Public Suggestion Box is NOT for discussing issues with the Review Team. If you are a reviewer and need help, please first check the Review Team Page and then if you still need help use the Review Team Support Forum. If you are an author and need help, please first check the Author Dashboard and if that does not resolve your issue use the private contact form. For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

You can find out more about that by following this link :tiphat:

Thank you for the clarification. I am a new author so I am hoping to not make too many mistakes along the way. I am not ready yet as I am still revising my manuscript. I can use all the help anyone is wiling to offer about the important points.

You have to go to the link to request a review of the book on Author Dashboard. Then you have to fill up a form.

Question: I'm a book blogger, so am I not allowed to share any links to my blog?

Not until you're no longer a "new" member, and then only by submitting it to your profile :tiphat:

I am new and lost! First I was playing lotteries and losing, then I was on a reading site and being warned about the many rules. Who or what is your sponsor? Where is your physical location? Where are your books or don't they exist? I have a phd in Rhetoric from Northern Illinois University. I taught at Pfeiffer University in Misenheimer, NC and Charlotte for 23 years. I am 80 years old and retired. Contrary to most professonals I enjoy my Kindle. I live in Concord, NC and married to one of my students. You will have to get to know me to find out how old is he is! I will also be happy to tell you every thing I know and then some. My name is Margaret but most folks call me Dr. Peg.

While we can't post about our published books, could we still ask for help about writing our future books?
