Get Featured on Black Author Showcase

Would you like to be featured on the Black Author Showcase? Any member that contributes useful information that helps the entire community is not commercial can be featured.  It's easy,just write a blog entry, book review, article/essay, start a discussion, lead an active group, upload a book, graphic art, useful photos or videos, sample chapters, or writing samples.

 Have an existing website or blog? You can republish any article or blog entry on your Black Author Showcase profile page blog or create an article or discussion based on articles on your website. We prefer that you have the entire piece with a full link to your site(s) at the end and not just a one liner or paragraph with a 'continued' link at the end.

 What happens when you are featured? Your piece is showcased on the front page of the website community along with frequent broadcasts to our twitter and facebook followers. In the past we have had podcasts focusing on featured members and look forward to starting that up again. Not a bad deal for a totally free membership community. Our goal is to promote our members who uphold our mission:

“A cooperative learning, teaching and supporting community for anyone who helps bring a book to life.”

Ads, trailers and commercials are not considered suitable content. If you are blatantly just telling someone to buy your book or service, that doesn't help the community or you. You can expand your reach by providing useful content that will bring members back to read your contributions.  This will also further you as a subject matter expert.

How do we choose featured members? Our editors check our uploads using the community software that gives us daily feedback on top content and members. We do not know all of our members personally, so there is no favoritism. Content is chosen by what helps the greater community with creating and finding better books.

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
We have lost numerous members because of the amount of 'friend' mail they instantly receive. This Hurts Everyone.
Spam is unsolicited advertising, whether it is posted as comments on other members' pages or is emailed for marketing purposes.

Please be considerate. Post your advertisement in the proper Articles/Forum or Group. There are free classifieds on the Pages tab. You can post your information on your profile and even update your blog as often as you like.

We are not into censorship, so please don't make us ask you to leave. Be kind and unselfish - don't spam.
