What will prevent me from becoming a Promoted Author?
- Things such as complete removal of stories from GA, for self-publishing or subbing to publishers, will preclude authors from being promoted to Promising or Signature. While we understand some stories are removed for personal reasons, using GA as a beta/editing service for later publication is unacceptable. Some stories may be eligible for movement to the site Premium section, but authors should check with site staff prior to making the decision to remove stories for publication.
- Poor site behavior, including antagonizing readers and members
The best approach is for promotion is to engage members and readers in a friendly manner, avoid controversy and don't post and remove stories.
