types of post need to be related to Historical Mysteries.
[Off-Topic promoting will get one's posts moderated]
also need to actually benefit CTT readers [ i.e.
new HM information, contests, chapter previews, author web
page updates, signing dates, conventions, review announcements,
publisher announcements, special book sales online (Ex:
UK books at US store), etc.....]. Please remember that this
is a group for fans of historical mysteries, not group focusing
on subjects of interest to HM authors rather than readers.
posts need to be few and far between -- certainly no more
than once a week and even that often may be inappropriate,
depending upon content [Constant promotion posting will
get one's posts moderated]
word "PROMO:" or "ANNOUNCEMENT:" should
be in the subject heading of posts that are otherwise appropriate,
but purely promotional. -- EXAMPLE -- PROMO: Contest
--- OR -- Announcement: Sisters in Crime meeting....
Note: adding that to the header does NOT in itself
make the promotion acceptable. See the above guidelines
on content. Reminders will be sent out to those who forget,
and forgetting too often will get one's posts moderated.
please DO NOT send promos or advertising about out services,
site, etc directly to CTT authors. They are here to chat,
just like the rest of us.
