Hobnob with Authors

This is a group for readers and authors to connect.

The Hobnob with Authors group was created as a safe zone where authors could talk about their own works freely without being accused of transgressing LibraryThing's no promotions rule.

Besides letting authors talk about their works, we also allow promotional posts, but ONLY if they are posted to the appropriate subject threads. For a list of the current promotional threads, please see the READ BEFORE POSTING post.
