Hobnob with Authors

This is a group for readers and authors to connect.

DO introduce yourself in the Author Introduction Thread, add yourself to our List of LT Authors by location, and then sit down and chat. Join the on-going discussions (they'll offer you plenty of opportunities to talk about your writing). Once we feel that we know you, then we're more likely to be interested in taking a look at your books.
DO NOT start a thread about your book.

Although book promotion posts are not allowed elsewhere on LT, they are allowed in this group. Please post them only in the appropriate subject threads linked to below:
Science Fiction and Fantasy Books
Romance Books
Mystery, Thriller and Suspense
Young Adult and Children's
All Other Fiction
When you post a book promotion or special offer, please let the readers know if free copies are available in return for reviews.

DO introduce yourself in the Reader Introduction Thread, and then join in the discussions. Ask questions. Get to know the authors. Offer to review books (you'll have to give the author your email or mailing address).
DO NOT let the authors do all the talking. It's bad for them. :)

This group differs from the Author Chat group in that those are scheduled chats, and this is more free-form. Authors also have the Writers Brag and Rag Bag group for author-to-author talk.

See more about how to use LibraryThing if you're an author or publisher, without running into the "no promoting" sections of the site.
