I am really enjoying the MagicCafe. My wife is a publish mystery writer (18 Traditionally Published novels and seven non-fiction. Since the big changes in publishing, I haev been working part time formatting eBooks for various fiction writers so that they can sell their books through Amazon, B&N, Apple, Sony etc. Where (if it is permissible) should I mention the services for formatting eBooks that I offer? I see a lot of magicians talking about eBooks.

Many thanks and if this is not "the thing to do" I understand 100%

Rik, it sounds like this would be a part time business for you and as such, any posts talking about the service would be considered advertising. Advertising must be paid for.

If a question is asked and Rik has an answer, can he give answers without mentioning any for-pay service?

If a question is asked and it's obvious to Rik the person needs direct assistance, can Rik say "shoot me a PM for more info" and stay within bounds?

Not trying to start any wars or dig into the Café's business here. But we do see a lot of posts that mention "my book/DVD/other product might help you". And we've also seen some people banned for such stuff among their other faults. Is there a set of guidelines to keep people on the right side of the line?

Thank you so much for the input. My "part time formatting business" is VERY part time and mostly for my wife's friends and I do not want to break any rules, written or implied. If it is even a shade of grey I would rather say nothing than offend anyone.

This place has helped me SO MUCH - I want to be an active member and not a PITA.

Cheers all.

Ed, absolutely. That's what the Café is about. Magicians helping magicians. Questions and answers can be posted as long as it isn't advertising.
