Hobnob with Authors

This is a group for readers and authors to connect.

Unlike the rest of the groups, this is a "safe space" for authors to promote and converse about their books without fear of being accused of spamming. Authors are encouraged to chat with members, not just copy and paste blurbs about their books.

This group differs from the Author Chat group in that those are scheduled chats, and this is more free-form.

Authors:
*Start conversations about your writing
*Offer copies of books (for review or otherwise) to readers
*You also have the Writers Brag and Rag Bag group for author-to-author talk.

Readers:
*Chat with authors, find out about their books, ask them questions
*Offer to review books (you'll have to give the author your email or mailing address)

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