    I picked this up because it looked interesting, but I think you'd better get a copy. There's a lot of detail missing about Bookangel, like the free listing option and email list.

    Ok, that got my attention (SOMEONE YELLING YOUR NAME DOES THAT), but please remember you can use private messages (or "conversations" on this board). We'll have a look.

    P.S. I'm changing your title to something quieter.

    I've just got an email from another author, who is less then happy with it. It seems the research on Bookangel is rather inaccurate, for example it does not mention the reviews or newspaper column and discourages authors from submitting their books by claiming the site charges. I've dropped you a PM.

    They say we charge?! What?

    We've sent updated details, but the listing won't be fixed this year. One of the problems is that she's looking for standard promo sites that you pay to add your ad for a period, not club sites like ours. For example, she asks about resubmission times after being declined. If we turn a book down, it's for good and the delay occurs if you are accepted and want to resubmit. She doesn't actually cover promotion outside site/facebook/major social media which means many of our main tools won't appear.

    Well, I can confirm one of our members wrote to preditors and editors who hopefully will take a look at the site and be more positive. It feels rather like waiting for a tax audit.

    You can tell what kind of day it is when I read it as standard porno site, and I wonder if you have started up an 18s-only section I've missed.

    Any luck with that?

    I clicked on that link, and that site seems to be lacking in the "movement" area. Slow to load pages and all that. Do you guys want me to start linking relevant sites to my business Facebook page for more possible exposure?
