Is it considered advertising?
« on: February 13, 2014, 04:02:44 PM »
My cousin has published her first book and it will be released on Amazon next month. Would it be acceptable to replace my signature for a while with a link to it?
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

Since we have authors already posting that their books are out or posters have Etsy links, I don't see why it would be an issue.

Just because I click to see the book doesn't mean I have to buy it.   :)
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

Great! If anyone objects, I can remove it on request later.
