grantcravens: Thanks I have a bzillion odd skills, one of them being graphic design so ...uhh... I designed it. I actually put together a second one last night for when that particular ad loses clicks to attract fresh eyes:
I think I may like that one even more (in case you were wondering these ads are for a serial that premiered just this week Split-Self ... right now it's only available to fluffy-seme members [*cough* this is free BTW] but I'll be submitting it to WFG as soon as the chapters start to archive in the public-no-membership-required-section ... in another week or so)
Murazrai: This is my opinion on the subject: there's a fine line between crossposting and spam. Crossposting works because it brings quality content to another site/group, but you have to remember that in most cases sites don't really want content so much as they want activity. So the cross posting that worked best for me were in communities/sites where I was also an active, contributing or established member. I think audiences are like plants they need cultivation to grow, so if you can manage being active on five or six different sites (whatever that may entail, reading/reviewing others work, commenting, discussing) then as long as you're not breaking the rules I'd say it's okay. But if you can't then I think you risk damaging your story because it gets labelled in people's minds as SPAM and they just ignore your posts whenever they see them.
allantmichaels: And what pray tell will we do it WovelCon (Wovel, btw, sounds to me like some kind of space beetle from the Star Wars universe hahaha)
