Because of spurious ROBOTIC registrations to the site, and registrations by people seeking to use this group to promote things other than books, I've discontinued automatic registrations to this site. Authors who wish to join the community must now use the provided form to apply for membership in this site. Click on Membership Application in the left sidebar in order to go to the application. Membership remains free. This is a community for authors to promote their work to the public. New authors are welcome here, always.
I've had to delete over 1000 registrations which were spurious, during the last week. So, the automatic registration provision for this site has been discontinued as of today. It will take a burning bush for me to reactivate that provision.
I remain, as always,
administrator, Great Books and Authors
