Author message boards ...

There are two author message boards that I'm an active member of. Both are IMO easy to use and nice places.

The first one is adwoff, a message board by and for fans of Nora Roberts. Nora stops by there regularly and I enjoy chatting with others who also like her books.

The second board I'm a member of is the SEP message board. The board is part of the homepage of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and a great place to meet other Seppies. SEP is around most days and it's always exciting to hear about her writing progress, etc.

On both boards I have made friends and although I'm not posting all the time (I'm really not that social :)) it's always nice to talk with other people who love books in general and both authors just as much as I do. Of course there are sometimes also people who I don't like but I think that's normal. 

I'm curious and want to know if you are a member of a message board of/for an author. Have you had good experiences or negative ones?


  1. No, I'm not a member at any author message boards, but I follow and comment on several author blogs :-)

  2. ps. I'm still in love with your beautiful new design :-D

  3. I'm not a member of any boards but I follow several authors blogs and the interaction there is usually very good.


  4. Michelle Bardsley is the only one currently though I am thinking about joining Lara Adrian's and Sherrilyn Kenyons.

  5. The way eharlequin works their author blogs it is almost like a message board. I'm not much for message books myself.

  6. I'm not a member of any authors message boards. I think I'm way to shy for that or perhaps I have an unusual dislike for those message boards in general. No idea why. I prefer twitter and blogs. And I agree with Stella: your template is made of awesome.

  7. Of course you know that I am a member on the SEP bulletin board for nine(!!) years now. I think it's a great place on the www and I haven't found another board yet, which is as good-hearted as hers. I haven't checked out NR's board though.
