Loopy for Loops

I know some of you are looking for some places to pop in now and then and promote. Here's a list of Yahoo! Groups where you can promote your books, and the promo rules that go with those groups.

AORAAG (Authors of Romance and All Genres) - Promotions will be done on Wednesday only... One [self promotion] is allowed per member... One [publisher promotion] is allowed per publisher, any member of a publisher may post this promotion... The announcement of being awarded a contract or receiving a great review may be posted at anytime. (full rules)

Brenda Williamson Romance Party - PROMOS allowed, but please DON'T POST THEM EVERYDAY and ESPECIALLY, DON'T POST THEM ON SCHEDULED AUTHOR DAYS! Why? Authors and readers alike find it inconsiderate.

Coffee Time Romance - Please feel free to promo yourself on every Monday ONLY.

eBookLove - Authors are requested to provide one free romance ebook giveaway per blatant promo posted to this list... Author Days are a chance for authors to talk about their work for a whole day on the list. Just look at the calendar on the eBookLove yahoo website and find an empty day that works for you. Then contact us to request your preferred day at ebooklove-owner @ yahoogroups .com (delete spaces). One of the list moderators will get in touch with you to work out the details and set up the calendar entry.

Fallen Angel Review Chatters - Please respect the forum and do not post promos during scheduled author/publisher days.

Joyfully Reviewed - Tuesday is promo day!

Love Romances eBook Cafe - Promo day is Mondays only... This means 1 promo per author/publisher. When posting promotions, please start the subject line with "PROMO." This way our members who do not wish to read them all can skip them.

Novelspotters - For the loop rules, click NovelSpotPromoGuide.txt.

Romance Bistro - Contest Mondays: Have a contest you want to share? Today’s the day! Tell us all Tuesdays: This is our Author Promo Day. Tell us all about your new or upcoming releases, excerpts, or special events!

The Wild Rose Press author loop - This is a Wild Rose Press reader group for the promotion of The Wild Rose Press and its authors only. Please do not post promotions or excerpts from other publishers.

These are great, but Yahoo loops make me loopy! What other things are effective at spreading the word about stories?
