Hi, Kevin,

Once you have reached the fifty substantive post threshold for opening a promotional thread in AE & BP, you may promote your own published work only. The guidelines for promoting your own published work are here. In addition, please check out How do I promote on Absolute Write with aplomb, and What's this deal about "engaging the community"? Most of your questions should be answered in those two posts; but, if you need further assistance, please contact me via this thread or by PM. I'll help as much as possible.
